~Whatcha Working Wednesday~

Hello Prim Friends,

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the beautiful spring weather we are having. I’m just so happy to see the sun shining every morning when I wake up…life does go on. I want to thank each and everyone of you who took the time out of your day to comment on my last post and to keep me in your prayers, I read them with tears in my eyes…ALL of you made me feel so much better telling me that no, I wasn’t crazy just human:) Again thank you all from the bottom of my heart♥


I’ve been keeping busy tweaking and taking Samantha to preschool then heading on to GW, I didn’t today though because her dad was picking her up so I’m came straight home to get some things done here. I will show you what I found for $4.00, Monday, at first I couldn’t believe that it was hanging there in the fabric section…a cotton ticking throw!!! This pic below shows it on my new, white bedspread (I’ve been tweaking my bedroom) I wanted to show you how white it was before I put it in the washer with some tan Rit Dye!


I thought it would come out alot darker but it took the edge off of the white, I might try dyeing it again just haven’t made up my mind yet…you all know how that can be! So I decided to place it in my stepback cupboard, for now anyway:)

First I had it this way but then decided I liked it better…


This way!


I also just started as you can see, working on this sampler I bought at the consignment shop, I think it needs two coats of black so I’m off to finish it…I think it may end up in my bedroom:) I’ll show it to you when I’m done with it, peeked by pulling the tape up to see how it looked with the black next to it and I like it sooooo much better than the green :)

  1. Love the new throw Rondell. What a lucky find. I liked it on your bed but it also looks good in your cupboard. Wish I could be that lucky and find one.
    Enjoy your day.

  2. Hey Rondell..love the blanket..great find..I am playing a game on my blog and chose you to play..:)

  3. LOVE the new ticking throw. Hey I sent someone who emailed me about coffee staining a big item to you. I told her RIT dye might work better and that you used it.

    The sampler is looking good.


  4. Love the ticking throw you found..Unbelievable price..I liked it on your bed but it looks nice where it's new place is..The sampler will definetly look nice with a different color as the frame..Can't wait to see it finished..

  5. Hi Rondell,
    What a great ticking throw!! I love it and it looks wonderful in the cupboard!!
    I stopped by our GW this morning and found another white pitcher to add to my collection.

  6. You are busy as usual! You always find the best stuff and I've been wanting to try the Rit Dye, so I'm glad to know that it works. Hope you have a happy week, Dawn

  7. Love that ticking throw! What a deal! I think your sampler is going to look so nice with the black frame! It will have a completely different look to it, very prim!
    Great job Rondell!

  8. Hi Rondell...I really love your ticking throw.. I like it on your bed too. What a blessing to find something so nice...

  9. Love the throw!! It looks great in your step back.

  10. Hi Rondell,
    You had great finds! I love the throw. Perfect addition to your step-back! I'm sure your sampler will look as old as the hills when you are done. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I love the throw and I like the frame black too on the sampler.


  12. Wow! You got that for 4 bucks?? That's an awesome deal! I love how you have it displayed, looks great!

    Congrats on losing more weight! Hey, as long as you're losing it that's all that matters. It seems like those that lose it fast, find it again fast. So you are doing it the right way!
