stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
It was warm enough this weekend to venture out for a little retail therapy. The snow was beginning to melt and the temperatures have risen to just above freezing. The reservoir in the park is still frozen but there is water running and puddles!
So we had a little mooch down to Fishs Eddies to see if the last of the January sales were going to yield any treasure – and surprise, we got a few bargains.
This Lotta espresso cup was a snip and I already have one. A pair is so much better, for buttons and threads.
and this tea towel – hmm – well, just had to have it 🙂
(I managed to resist the Charlie Harper dishes though, so my halo is shining)
Then over to the East Side for a thrift shop trawl…….
I love this! It was made in Indonesia, is dishwasher safe… so it’s not old, but that is it. No make, brand, no idea.
Hmm, there seems to be a trend here…maybe apple green is one of my new favourite things too.
This ribbon box was $5! With some snippets of ribbon to show how it should be used, including some from Barneys. I’ve never seen anything like this before, maybe it is from a shop? – I mean used in a shop! Should I paint it?
Then we had 8″ of snow again yesterday.
Happy New February!
