I had to go to my local quilt shop (LQS) today to pick up some fabric for a job that is here to be done. A few doors from the LQS is my favorite antique store.
Oh my, the bargains that just jumped into my arms and came home with me.
A tea towel that was so retro and cute. I particularly liked that it has so much turquoise in it.
And 3 pieces of barkcloth. I didnt even really know what barkcloth was until today. I was looking for “cutters” or crummy fabric/linens/quilts that are only good enough to cut up to make smaller things. I was looking for postcard recycling fodder. Well, Steve and I like 2 of these well enough that I may make little wall hangings out of them. The rest will be postcards. For those that know me…… are you surprised that I bought so much green?
And I found this cutter quilt:
And my find of the day:
Vintage quilt top, grandmother’s flower garden, hand pieced. YAY. I have been looking for one for 5 years. Price? a song.
And the biggest bargain of all I didnt buy. I wasnt sure if it was a bargain, didnt know much about it. But came home, did a little online research and called the store back. They are holding it for me for a week, till I get back over there to pay for it. WOO HOOO. I can hardly wait. (but I have to, they are closed till Tues now) Of course when I buy it I wont have a place to put it, so then will need a china cabinet. Then I will need room to put a china cabinet. yeah, the snowball effect.
For those of you who told me last summer that I should buy all the dishes I want? It’s YOUR fault!
