Some new old stuff.....

We went to a thrift store today in Moses Lake..it has lots of cool stuff and the prices are great... I picked up a few things...a package of old transfers for tea towels "Mexican Motif"..not sure why I got them..but for 2o cents....I thought someone might want them...and lots and lots of packages of flower petals....I can use them on postcards, ATC's and I'm thinking of making a purse of some sorts using them and perhaps putting them under some tulle and stitiching all over it... this book...

Here is a close up of the "The Complete Book of Sewing" by Contance Talbot..1943..1st addition.
It has all sorts of project ideas..even a pet blanket...here are my pets...

Oscar and Peanut...they are looking out the window of our 5th wheel.. I kind of funked the picture out.
It's cold and dreary here today..a great day to stay inside and sew...I'm working on a small tote bag ..from some vintage type fabric with kids and hula hoops..I would like to try and put a quilt together this week-end. I 've had the blocks completed for a year now..I just like smaller projects now..but this will be a beautiful quilt if I ever get it done..So now I will clean up my sewing/painting/beading.blogging area and try get this quilt on the design wall(fancy name for flannel thumb tacked to the wall) and get a picture of it posted tomorrow eve...Now that's my goal..but who knows what could happen. At least I will get the tote bag done...
