Yes I have been shopping.
I hit the local thrift shop twice this week and scored both times!
I don't have a photo of the first one but here is the latest score.
Two very nice vintage sheet Pillowcases, a Pyrex dish and that adorable swan made in Japan.
I am going to turn the swan into a pin cushion!
Stay tuned for that in the near future.
I have been watching all the tea towel quilts that are popping up online.
I have been scouring the internet looking for the perfect tea towel.
Apparently so are others!
Every time I see one I want I get outbid.
I finally did win one and it is signed by Tammis Keefe.
There is a small hole near the signature but
I am going to put a little interfacing behind it with some fray check and use it anyway.
I love the colors and had to do a wee bit of shopping to get the perfect match!
I think I did quite well.
Notice the 2 fox prints in there?
I could not resist using the fox in the hen house!
I am beginning to warm up to the aqua/teal and mustard combination.
Do you like those together?
I bought a couple other prints too.
Not sure if I will use the 2 blue prints or not.
I need better light to evaluate it by.
The text print was just because I love it so much!
It was dark this morning so the colors are not very true in these blue prints.
I have my Swoon top all done and now am piecing a couple of blocks for the back.
If it ever stops raining long enough for the ground to dry up I will take it outside for a picture.
With all that white in the quilt I sure don't want to chance dirt getting on it!
I decided I will not share the back of the quilt until it is finished and gifted
b/c I am doing something super special for the bridal couple.
Guess you will have to check back in August for that one!
Any suggestions for a good mustard gold or aqua/teal or
that weird dark, slate/almost navy blue in the rooster fabric for me??
Maybe I can find something at the Fat Quarter Shop?
Open to your suggestions!!
