I do like strolling around antique malls and the two large ones I stopped at on my way home from Colorado were a great “Eye Candy” fix. I’ve collected many things over the years and I need to stop accumulating things but I still like to look and check on prices. Toy sewing machines are something I always stop to admire and curb myself from starting a collection of.
I have about two dozen sets of crochet or embroidered pillow cases so I just took a photo of this set and left them behind. It’s one of the most elaborate pairs I have ever come across.
This quilt might be an inspiration for a waste triangle project someday. Earlier this year I started some cleaning and organizing in my quilting studio and came across an amazing number of waste triangles I have saved over the years. It’s time to put some more of them to good use. I do have on my website four free waste triangle patterns for all to use.
My purchase of the day, this great plaid picnic basket! I’ve already used it when I took some rhubarb crisp, straight from the oven, over to my daughter’s and her husband’s studio, for a late morning treat.
Many more road trips and antique malls coming up in my schedule!
