Sweet Finds



A few weeks ago, I discovered a new thrift store near my house. I knew it existed, but since I avoid driving on the beltway, I waited until the perfect opportunity arose to explore. My parents and sister came to visit, and they're just the type of people that appreciate such places (unlike some, John...) To my surprise, we found that it is not one, but two thrift stores together, in the same building. What a find! I didn't pick up much, as I'm trying to limit the amount of crap treasures I'm bringing into the house. Anyway, I was very excited to find a huge bag of vintage fabrics. Usually I have to question what the people are putting together in the bags. More often than not, I end up bringing home 5 ugly pieces for just 1 good piece of fabric. But this bag was different. It was filled with all these fabrics, most of them more than likely being vintage. Only one has something printed on the selvedge, which I'm having a hard time reading. This bunch is my favorite. I'm hoping to use these for my doll quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap.



And don't forget. There's still time to sign-up for the fabric/sheet swap. You never know, you might get one of these vintage fabircs ;)

Things are really hard with jack right now, so i have not had a chance to respond about the swap, but I am in.

And I am positively ga-ga over that green. Ga-ga I tell you.
