Sew here it is Monday already and I am still talking about Saturday!! Even when you’re retired, Saturday is still THE day! Could it possible have anything to do with the fact that it is also Garage Sale Day?
During the week, I got TWO emails… one from Salt Spring Shelly and the other from Heartsdesire…informing me about a Quilter’s GS!! Thank you, ladies…that was very sweet of you! This is the same Quilter’s GS that I went to last month…and scored big time with the Civil War fabric! So I was up early and pumped…haha!
Last time I forgot to take my camera…this time I came prepared! The GS was inside so we got to see some of the deceased quilter’s work. Apparently she did not own a sewing machine but enjoyed doing all of her work by hand…yup, you heard me…this is all hand pieced and hand quilted!!
This was behind the front door so it was hard to get a good shot…
All three of these quilts were in the entrance way to her home…LOVED this homespun beauty!
This one is nice too!
This is Sharon…she is the one who alerted me to this sale last month!! With friends like this who needs a News Paper! Thanks, again Sharon!
To Sharon’s left is the Fat Quarter shelf…all FQ were $1 each. In front of her is the bagged fabric. Fabric is grouped in coordinating bunches and sold for either $5 or $10 depending on how much fabric was in each bag! This is where I found the CW and Homespuns last time…and yes, there were MORE new bags! Most of the other quilters gravitated to the other side…the dark side of the table…the batiks! Fine with me! heehee
This was the yardage corner…all fabric was $4 a metre.
More FQ, Scrap bags, threads and patterns…
This box contained bags of fabric…each bag was $1!
Over by the piano were the books, which sold for $1 and $2! I spent a lot of time going through these! I loved her collection of books…we seem to have the same taste in quilts!
So I bought more of the same…some Civil Wars and Homespuns…this little bundle containing 27 FQ from the same Civil War line…for $25!
I almost squealed when I found THIS Kim Diehl book…it was on my book list to find down south this year! Yup…it was a buck! More on this book later….
I was practically dancing around the living room…but NOT…for fear Richard would jack up the price!! You do NOT want to look too happy at a GS! They were all books that I LOVE!!
All books were a buck or two but patterns were either $4 or $7…go figure! They were not moving…at all! BUT I did find this pattern…
…with the cutest stitcheries in…SNOWMEN for every month of the year! SEW dang cute that it found it’s way into my box!
I think these are May and February….
Sew there you have it…and yes there is a THIRD sale in October!! Would you believe that after TWO GSs they have only touched a third of her stash!! Be still my heart!! I think I need to go back to work!…WHAT did I just say??…SLAP ME!! …Thanks, I needed that!
Have a magical Monday and Happy Quilting!~P
