I got a really nice squishy in the mail this week from my favourite Maritimer: Rosa!
These Civil War repro's are going to be used in my Dear Jane quilt - - which has sort of been on the back burner for a bit. I think I have 19 more blocks to make, and about 2/3's of the triangles. I hope I can get some time soon to cut into these beautiful fabrics that Rosa sent me - Thank you so much Rosa!
On the "Thrifty News" end of things - I've picked up quite a few quilty bargains this week. I went to the St. Anne's Fair on Friday to scrounge through the White Elephant tent and found two ziploc bags with fabric in them. Each had a label from "Keepsake Quilting". They are all Native themed prints.
I also got about 6 or 8 vintage hankies, lightbulbs, some martini glasses for a friend, and a few other doo-dads. I filled a small cardboard box, and paid $2 for it all.
Monday, the local Sally Ann has a $5 a bag sale. I filled a bag with cotton clothing, including a Laura Ashley dress with a HUGE skirt - - just imagine how much fabric is in the great big butt bow alone!
