|love those buttons!|
As for the blue quilt, I have made 30 blocks but I think I need another 5. I will crank those out tomorrow and see if I can get it sewn together. I cannot start on the quilting though as... trauma... I took my sewing machine for a tune up today and they said it will be 2 weeks. Yoiks! I still have my old machine which is in great running order so I can use it for piecing but definitely not quilting. It was so strange to thread the needle and I kept pushing blank space where the needle up button is on my new machine. I am so spoiled.
|vintage pillow ticking|
And for thrift store finds today. I found the sock pattern booklet that I have been looking for. And one for dolly clothes and last weekend, I picked up the one with patterns for Bazar items. Lots of toilet roll covers which I won't be knitting but lots of tea cozies which I will be knitting. I am determined to knit a pair of socks this year. With the pattern book I am that much closer! I also found another milk glass footed bowl and a bag of buttons from someone's button jar. And check our the vintage ticking!!!!!! 50 cents each!!! Still have labels. 100% cotton, down proof cotton. Awesome! They are in great shape. I could make a pillow ticking quilt.
