Hi there, here we are back to blogger flipping pics...but let's not get over wrought about it OK? I will try. Here are all of my findings...$8 worth of buttons...whoopee!
I fell in total love with these weird egg cups. Birds and the one was aqua, white and black, I had to take them home, but they are kind of strange. I also found these odd little wooden doll heads for $0.25, of course they had to come home too.
This poodle fabric is so, so great...kind of shiny, 2 yards and it didn't do anything weird after I washed it. PLUS the poodles are HUGE and kind of ugly cool. The other is a yard of a peppy flour sack material. I do have to admit that this grabby lady snagged some very odd white material with big red dutch clogs on it right out from under my hand. I am still a little crabby about it, but I am too greedy.
A larger picture of the poodles, I think that I am going to make myself a bag with some of this. My sister "M" said "Oh that would make a great lining for a purse" LINING??!!! What are you talking about these are some crazy dogs, they need to be out and PROUD!
I have to come back to these buttons. I bought a $3 bag (I am so cheap) of buttons just for these. They are that old cheddar/mustard color that is so ugly and so beautiful in old quilts. The big holes and the odd color, they just spoke to me.
The most exciting find was 6 full size bowling pins for $12...we are going to make them in to hose guides in our garden. They will look really cool. Initially I only bought one, as I was carrying it around the antique fair I got some really odd looks and it made me really just want to walk around town with the boys and one pin. Just to see how people react, people are weird. But I guess that is OK too.
More about the desire to doze off the other day, it really wasn't because I was tired...but sometimes when I haven't made anything lately, I just get really bored of myself and my musings and YUCK, I have got to get out of my head...maybe others can relate??
Fiber Art show...yes, I got a piece in and I am so pleased. It was the wind-up bird with the wonky house...my favorite. I am a little nervous, but excited to share.
That is it for now...I have to go and watch some Battlestar Galactica, before the husband decides to pack it in for the night (I am only on season 3, right after the cylon invasion....what is the resistance going to do??? Quite thrilling.)
