Normally when my alarm goes off at 5:00 am I'd not be happy but this morning I jumped out of bed all excited. The adventure this morning was breakfast at Cracker Barrel and then on to an estate sale of quilter's treasures. Stefanie and I were pumped up and ready for some good deals. Old quilts and blocks, books, machines and of course fabrics. My first attack was the children's sewing machines. Wanted to make sure I got first dibs on those. They had some beauties too. The fabrics were being sold at $1 per pound! Quickly I had my bag full. Then I started going threw all the vintage blocks/tops. I saw a grandmother's flower garden top and I made the mistake of putting it back down for a second and poof it was gone and I heard them say it was $15 - I could have kicked myself. Later thou I did find a big stack of flower garden blocks and got all of these for $15. We also got a box of rick rack and it's crammed full - we're splitting that.
So here are my treasures.
All my fabrics
Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks - what a beautiful stack
Haven't counted them yet.
My prize of the day!
Need to find out the date this was made.
Hubby has already started working on this
to get it working again. It's really frozen up
solid. Some of the metal is brass.
Stefanie got 2 great children's machines too.
And how my little kitten flower garden is coming along.
I only had 2 fat quarters of this fabric but
might be able to get more.
Well off to pet, ogle and love on my fabrics.
