|The old armory made over into an antique store.|
|The antique mall, it goes right through to the next street!|
We went to a small town near us and visited the Antique mall which is really like booths in a large store. The cashier at the the store had a booth and he had stocked it with his late mother's quilting things. Books were $5.00 (some I had just bought for full price, ie. the Stack and Whack book). There were pattern packets, fabric bundles, rulers etc.
I came away spending $35.00 and I have a circle cutting ruler, a double pack of triangle rulers, a soap stone mechanical pencil and 1 refill, 2 books ( 1 with a CD), a paper piecing package ( I need to find the book, Bella Bella Quilts, to go with it), and triangle papers to make flying geese.
Wow was I happy. He also said he had 3 more boxes his Dad was bringing in later so I guess I will go back and have a look. There was so much stuff I thought a store had closed down!!!
|Scrap Bags have the end pieces of most of a designer line. the pieces range from 2" to 3" wide.|
Then I took a scrap bag of Central Park by Kate Spain, I bought a while ago and trimmed the strips to 2 1/2" wide. Then I cut the strips into 1 1/4" strips.
|These didn't quite go with the other strips.|
|I just got this on sale and I think it might work.|
|Too dark? I kinda like it. I tried yellow and it was too pale. Hmmmm...|
I also wanted to share the prize I won from the Beat the Winter Blues Blog Hop. I was lucky to be chosen to win a prize from Lizzie at the Swedish Scrapper.
|It's so exciting to find these in the mailbox!|
|They are so cute and small.|
|Dresden challenge draw prize: 2 rulers and 2 FQ bundles.|
I also forgot to share my draw prize from the Dresden Challenge from September. I found this picture as I was going through my camera card. I'm not sure what I'll do with so many FQ's of the same fabric but who knows maybe some prizes for a future blog contest and I can share my winnings! Happy quilting!
