Quilting & Yard Sale Finds



I've got another forgotten project
on my quilting frame and ready to hand-quilt :)
I started this one back last fall.
It feels so good to be getting some 
of these started projects finish :)
 This is my first time 
working with a jelly roll.
I found two new shelves for my art barn.
This one was $5 at a yard sale.
All that I had to do was paint the sides 
and edge along the shelves.
They were a rusty brown,
I like turquoise better.
 Do you remember reading any of these books?
This shelf was $10 
all I did was paint it yellow.

You can never have enough storage :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
 It's going back up in the 100's again tomorrow.
I'm so tired of hot weather.

Feel free to remind be of this in the 
winter when I'm complaining about it being too cold, LOL.

Keep Smiling.
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

Thrifting At It's Best :)

 It rained here during the night . . .
and the morning air smells like heaven :)
Hallelujah!!!
~~~~~*****~~~~~
Going to yard sales and thrift stores
can be so much fun . . .
especially when you find treasures:)
This dresser scarf was "Free".
How's that for a bargain?
It's hand embroidered and hand crocheted:)
Free again.
What you need to know is that they were
covered in rusty stains,
but I managed to get them out:) 
Pillowcase . . . Free.
Pillowcase . . . Free.
Free again . . .
I love the edging on this one.
It reminds me of my Mamma; she loved
crocheting with variegated threads. 
Okay, I finally had to put out some money.
I bought this hand-quilted Log Cabin 
quilt for $20. 
I looks so pretty in my pink bedroom:)
 I could not believe the $20 price tag . . .
but didn't hesitate adding it to my shopping cart.
I may go thrifting for another year or more,
and never find another score like this.
~~~~~*****~~~~~
I'm very happy with my treasures.

Keep smiling.

I started sewing them together back in November 2013 . . .

Have you ever done that?
 Well, I have decided that I need to start

started, so now this one
is checked off my list.
