The Tailor of Gloucester

Since today was Tuesday and it is the day where it's just us girls in the house, we decided to go on one of our favorite outings together...the craft store followed by the used book store!

At the craft store we found some lengths of fabric for some projects around the house, some cork to replace the old stuff on big brother's desk, and some colored pencils.  Oh, and Lena picked out one skein of pink DMC. 

But the real treasures were the next stop.  The little bookworm has been into her Beatrix Potter books lately, and we found a title she was missing from her collection.  It is hard to believe really, but until now we've been missing "The Tailor of Gloucester". 

She's a little like a cat, she found a sunny spot on the floor to read her new books.

What's your favorite picture, Lena?

She has good taste.  I also scored a new-to-me needlework book, "Erica Wilson's Childrens World"

It has a large section of pieces inside based on Beatrix Potter's works (plus Muppets and Winnie the Pooh) but I bet I know which one I will have to put on the ever-growing to-do list.
