a find of all finds


quilt

Lately I have been keeping far, far away from any thrift stores and fabric shops, & its been difficult. After the move, I could not possibly justify buying one more piece of fabric, regardless of how inexpensive or original. This weekend my resolve wore thin. I have been aching to try out local thrift shops and the like, but honestly haven't really had the opportunity until yesterday while in Augusta.
It was brilliant. The linen section was chock full of old vintage sheets and curtains. I even stumbled upon my first vintage quilt. Its a little tore up in one corner but definitely workable. I was so excited to have found it, I feel like I am really in Maine now when I make a find like this!
I also found some great sheets and a nifty washcloth. The little chair is for our doll house.

We also spent some serious quality time in the studio this weekend. Its been great & Ieven managed to finish up a few valentine cards. That is what is on the sewing machine in the photos below.

More to come for this week, now that I have found the camera charger.
