This morning my cousin called to say she was going to be in my area and did I want to go thrift shopping with her. Well, we all know what my answer was. We went first to a rather large store where she didn't find what she was looking for. Just down the street is the Salvation Army thrift store where I seldom go because the parking is awful. She was undeterred and we browsed a bit, found a few things and paid for them. As we turned to go I saw there was an area marked Vintage that we hadn't seen. So off we went and the first thing that caught our eyes was a lovely old quilt. She picked it up and had me help her open it to see how big it was and if it was in good shape. ( it is 80 by 68 inches, and needs a bit of repair along one edge). She decided she didn't want it but I don't think she had even put it down before I had it in my hands. The two tiny tea cups were what I bought first...
and here is the quilt! The different kinds of fabric are so pretty!!
This is the backing. I have washed it and put it in the dryer. I know I was taking a chance on doing some damage but I have to wash everything I buy at any thrift store as soon as I get it home!! It survived quite well.
So that, my friends, is what I did today. All that remains to be done is that daily job of making supper! Although tomorrow is my shopping day I still have an assortment of veggies in the fridge which I will stir fry and DH has a Ham steak so that's what we eat tonight. Thanks for reading this rather long post.
