Only one photo...

to show but I had a GREAT weekend! Saturday was the annual community yard sale in my sister's little town. Julie and I hit the road early and did not let the spritzing rain deter us in our mission. We bought books, jewelry, old suitcases, pewter serving pieces, lamps, furniture, an antique scale (for a $1!!), an antique wicker chair ($5!) and vintage linens. I was looking for damask tablecloths and napkins and I scored in a big way. I can't wait to show you the vintage (maybe 50's) tablecloth that I know I will resell. My big score was a Thomasville recliner in perfect condition that the owners just could not fit in their small living room. They have the couch and love seat to match and the recliner was just too large. The colors are perfect for me. As soon as I know we will have some extended dry weather I will pick it up and bring it home. I can barely wait!

Sunday was a sewing day with my sister and best quilty friend, Pam. My sister is making props for a post-graduation party so she worked on those. Ms. Pam worked on some applique'. I worked on a couple of things and then finished quilting a table runner for my DIL. I am really pleased with it.

I have been sewing like a crazy woman the past couple of days so I will have more to show with my next post. My house needs to be cleaned, I need to eat some real food and at some point when the rain stops I need to mow my yard but all I want to do is sew. Don't you just hate when work gets in the way of sewing?!!


  1. Wow! Sounds like you found lots of goodies! We have a yard sale about an hour away from here, in August. It is somewhere around 50 miles long! I love to go, we go every year. Of course we never make it all the way through.
