Christmas gift in July





My cousin sent these books to me.  It was like Christmas had already arrived to receive them.   The patterns are delightful, though some have a bit more work in them.  The last one has 12 princess dresses that are beautiful.    I’m going to give in to temptation and make one or two for my dolls.    But these books have reminded me that the year is going rapidly and it is time to start making the clothes for the Christmas dolls we will be giving.

IMG_2836Today was spent shopping for a new mattress.    How do you select a new mattress and know that it will be more comfortable than the one you are now using.   We could have it a month and decide it really isn’t better and I don’t want to do that even if they will return/exchange it.   It seems like too much hassle.   So do any of you have any clues as to how we decide which is the right one?

    Try a “Sleep Number” bed.

    We have a sleep number bed and hate it. Our next bed will probably be a tempurpedic. From everything we’ve read and talked with people who have them, that’s the route we will probably go. Good luck with your search.

    Sharon, the really best way to see if a bed will work for you is to use it. In most cases, you could find out after the first night if it is the right bed for you. If the store is willing to pick up and deliver at no cost to you, I would say try it for 30 days. I ended up with a Craftmatic bed which did not work for me; but, the company would not take it back. Not even within the first week. You’re fortunate to have a store which offers this convenience.
