Yard Sale Finds!
Woo hoo!! Love it! Love it! Love it!! Do you ever go to yard sales? Well, we just did a major downsize, moving from a 4 bedroom house to an average sized 2 bedroom apartment, so we have no business going to yard sales, but hubby loves to do this on Saturday mornings. It is a hobby of sorts for him. We usually go to about 6-10 sales and rarely buy anything, unless it is a super duper bargain and something we need. No room here for decorative trinkets. Well, today I feel like we hit the sewing jackpot!
My bargain deals at three different yard sales:
BRAND NEW in package, Warm and Natural, Queen size batting!
AND a bag of purchased “by-the-yard” Warm and Natural batting, approx 2 yards
AND.... these pieces of quilter's cottons that range from 2 yards to 4 yard pieces
50 cents each piece!!
AND this large oval quilt hoop that says: A product of the Gibbs MF (some #’s – can’t read) I had to cover up parts of the quilt for the picture. (sorry), since it is my SECRET quilt that I am working on! It cannot be revealed until November, after it is presented.
AND these two spool holders, hand-painted by the previous owner
Aren't they so cute? Hand painted by the previous owner!
I am pleased as punch! Can’t beat those prices, unless they had given them to me for free!
Also, an update on the Cowboy quilt for baby Luke. I am finishing up the binding!! Yeah!! I will post a finished picture of it after I present it at the baby shower on October 8th. I am really looking forward to giving this one. It is the most difficult project I have ever done. Appliquéd faces are just not my “thing” even those that are cartoon-like. (no surprises, here!) I think it turned out pretty cute, but I never want to do another one, that is for sure!
Also I had some left over cowboy fabric so I made a changing pad using the fabric on one side, some warm and natural batting inside and then some heavy navy blue plastic on the other side. I think it looks nice and hopefully will work good!
