Yesterday, I mentioned I'd been to a church rummage sale. Normally this church has lots of sewing related goodies, and I clean them out. Not this time, though. But I did find these:
I thought they were all intact, but the Monopoly game is missing its board. Otherwise it's perfect. Originally it was the graphics that attracted me to these, but I want to try them all with my boys. We like games.
I also found this great linen towel. Yes, I'm Irish.
This is the only sewing stuff I found, but that's ok. I found it before anyone else did.
I love vintage buttons, and these were much cheaper than the antique shop. For everything I got, I paid a whopping $2.
I had to go to the fabric store after this, I needed some fusible fleece for a project. While I was there, I spotted a book I've been wanting since it was first released. It was 30% off. I walked around and around the store with it, debating the wisdom of spending that much on something non-food related.....times are hard, ya know......but in the end, wisdom prevailed and it came home with me.
It's jam-packed with good stuff. I know I'm going to learn a lot from it. Once the projects that are cooking on all my burners are done, I'm going to dive in and start creating.
No sewing has been happening this week, other than 2 projects I can't tell you about. I've also been busy helping my friend Cathy with an enormous project she has going on. I spent the weekend at her house cutting fabric....and you know those new shoes I have? My feet and back didn't bother me a bit! That is some kind of miracle.
Don't forget to go to Among The Gum Trees and enter all the give-aways!
