I thought I needed to get out and have a fun shopping day, so I hit the local stores and consignments.
You just never know what you will find in a home store and sometimes I get lucky. I got my first wire basket at a primitive store in Mystic, and was so happy to find this one at our local store. It is large and has two compartments, perfect for small pieces of wool. I hung it next to my cutting table, so I can snag a piece whenever I need a small piece of wool in a project.
Then I hit the TJ's in the same plaza and found this rustic wooden box. Not sure what I will use it for yet, but I will think of something, any ideas? Hey, it was in the sale aisle, can't pass up a good bargain;)
Today I had to hit the library, so thought, since I was out, why not hit the consignment nearby. I actually found a cast iron cat doorstop. They are hard to find, especially good fake ones;) It may not be a Hubley, but good enough for me. Both consignments had loads of new antiques in, but most were musty, I do not do musty or moldy.
Now, the Surprise? Well it is a secret, at least until Sunday night. So if you come back Sunday night, you will see a new blog featuring a free punch needle pattern that I made from a certain quilt designer's patterns. I will be working with her in the coming months, working on samples for a new line of punched patterns, so don't forget to come back on Sunday.
