What's not to love? The other day I stopped at a thrift store and all I brought home was a little bag of linens.
There was an 8 foot long strip of quilted pieces that someone put together, long ago...
by hand. I don't know what it is but I find these works so endearing.
I wonder what the person had in mind for the final product; I wonder about their fabric choices...
and I get a kick out of their little stitches. This probably would have made a lovely quilt; the person who made it was doing it the old-fashioned way, by sewing each piece onto a plain backing.
I do love the flowers on this fabric, and the green/green and pink/pink succession.
My friend Kathy gave me a few feet of this pink poodle vintage fabric.
It is so 1960s kitsch! I think it's so much fun!
Then, back at that same thrift shop, I also found a vertical Vera place mat...
and this soft, frothy Vera scarf that makes me dream about Spring some more.
Finally, there was this irresistible clock-themed silk scarf, The Happy Hours.
I'm planning to spend some happy hours in my
junk room office/craft space today, digging out.
I'll leave you with some blurry images -- and wisdom -- from work:
When life hands you a rolling cart of dummies...
make a friend!
