It's Not MY Fault

The other day I undertook the Road Trip to buy one skein of DMC 958 in order to finish up Baby Love. Here it is:





Yet, when my SweetHeart came home from work, he had to jump over this to get in the back door:





His immediate question was:

Did you buy all that?

Well, no, darling, I didn't.

You didn't?

No, sugar, I didn't.

Well, then, how'd you get it?

It was a Door Prize.

A Door Prize?

Yes, honey, a Door Prize.

Well, then, how did you win it?

It was easy. I went in there with a checkbook, and on my way out of there, they gave me a Door Prize!




Four bags of pure joy! I'm blaming this one on Wal-Mart.

Now don't you think something in that pile will be cute with this pattern, from 1955?




Scalloped pockets! Scalloped bodice! Scallops on the little cover-up! Be still my heart!



I'm in love!
I hope to be back later today with final photos of Baby Love. Sewing on buttons and it's done!

I wanna know what store gives out Door Prizes like that. I might be tempted to drive to Georgia just to see if I can win.
