Getting ready for March's Interpret This!

Saturday!  It is Saturday!  I have been looking forward to it all week.  Not only is it Saturday but one of the few, very rare, Saturdays when I don't have committmets all day long.  So, decided I wanted to go to the Ocean and to Goodwill. I hoped at both of those places to find things needed for my March's Reveal!

We went to Popham Beach.  It is always exciting to see how the beach has changed after each winter.  This year we have a large sandbar that is dry during lowtide so you can walk out to the Island.  However, the ocean has not been kind to the beach this year.  The new bathhouse,  built just a couple of years ago, is a great deal closer to the ocean.   The bathhouse didn't move. 

The ocean has eaten away most of the beach and the dune close to the bathhouse.

But I did find the perfect piece of driftwood!  And what is the beautiful piece of driftwood sitting on?  It is the office chair I found at Goodwill!  My sewing chair had lost a wheel so I have been carefully balancing myself when I sew.  Now, for $2.99 I can sew and roll and swivel and go and up down to my heart's delight.  AND I also found the frame I needed to stretch  my silk for batik.

So far I thought my Saturday was great but when we rolled into the driveway, there was a box from FedEx sitting on my doorstep. 

It is the package from Dick Blick with my lino, ink, brayer, and baren for my lino print class that will start on Monday!  YEAH!  NOW it was a perfect day.
