Well I had a great trip on Sunday to the car boot sale. Not a sewing machine in sight but I bought loads of books as I read a lot and have trouble keeping myself supplied - lol ! I was on the lookout for anything I could use for quilting and got these
3 100% cotton shirts which I will have great delight in chopping up.
I got these 2 nice thimbles - picture is lousy sorry. I don't collect thimbles but took a shine to these.
And the bargain of the day was these
The pink is a Laura Ashley print and measures 46 by 68 inches and cost me 50p ( about $1 ) and the green is also a Laura Ashley print and is actually a pair of curtains. Each curtain is about 80 inches long and 50 inches wide. For these I paid a pound ( $2 ). Less than a loaf of bread - lol ! Not quite sure what they will be yet but I was really pleased to get them. They are pretty fabrics in excellent condition. I also bought a great little wall shelf which I will sand down and re-paint. There is another sale on Sunday in a differnt place so we may venture there too. The kids refuse to come as they say it is a load of old rubbish. Admittedly a lot of it is - I've chucked out better stuff than some people were selling - lol ! I'll be on the lookout again - you never know what you'll find.
Talking of finding stuff I came across these this week - a few abandoned Dear Jane blocks. I made about 60 and changed my mind about colours. The others got made into a quilt top but these are unloved and abandoned. I may just have a play with these....The picture actually makes them look nicer than what they are - they are very wishy-washy !
Not a lot of quilting done this week as I have been making cushion covers for a lady I know. I have been cursing the person who invented zips - lol ! Can't wait to do them then I can get back to the interesting stuff. :-)
