and not too cold outside. It almost feels like we have a thin slice of Indian Summer. It's a season in the midwest, that falls after the first hard frost, and before the big freeze up. Usually it's warmer than this year, and usually it hits in early October. But hey, we'll take it whenever we get it and be happy it came *VBS* I haven't sewn, quilted or bound for over 2 weeks now, so I'll show you some of my "finds". These are part of my loot from the birthday shopping trip with Betsy. Only the yellow has been washed. I'm doing wash today, and I realize I hadn't done a pic of the new fabrics...so here are a couple. The yellow will probably be a background for a childs quilt. The dragons are for another dragon pillow case, the strips are for binding(only got a half yard) and the candy?? well...just because I like it *G*
With these, the darker polka dot will be lattice and/or borders. The middle blue is part of the Happy Train line, and will be borders and binding. The small piece of blue is a 'just because I like it' piece, a quarter yd I think.
And here's one of my treasures from last weeks thrifting with friends. I really like this guy...he's so happy. No wet mittons at my house anymore, but that's ok, I'll hang something else on the pegs.
And this is my big find, the American girl doll, in good shape with a nice dress for just over $30-/ She is one of the earlier AG dolls, named Kirsten, from the Revolutionary War period. I have a couple more, purchased on Ebay, and one new on in the box. I bought them before I even had granddaughters...how about that??
