First of all, there was a Hospice Shop sale... they were selling stuff that was donated from a neat local shop, with primitives among other things. Came home with a Christmas tree for $10! Now I have to return the one I ordered for $125. It doesn't look like much now, but it will!! It even came with lights.
Lots of other neat stuff ............ all at great prices and for a wonderful organization! I don't know what I would have done without Hospice when my father and husband died.
Then, it was time to shop for quilting and stitching projects! We have decided to start a Civil War sampler quilt, which mean shopping for some new fabrics and pulling more out of the "stash". This is what I came up with... turkey reds, browns, mustard for the backgrounds, blues and greens.
We also chose our next sampler to stitch together. I love her verse. We picked something small for now, and after the holidays will get into something larger.
Speaking of Civil War, I am also working on putting these antique pinwheel blocks that I have, which are from the 1800's, together with these hourglass blocks to make a small quilt. I just love how she pieced together bits of fabric to come up with a piece large enough for the pattern...so different from how we just go to the quilt shop today and buy what we need!
As you can see, a good time was had by all!
Enjoy the rest of your week...
