Sometimes thrift stores can be a gold mine of treasures! Last week two thrift store items came home with me,
I occasionally find an issue of Inspirations magazine and always pick them up to fill in the gaps in my collection. This time it was Issue #3 - not an easy one to find!
My friend picked up an odd looking ball of fabric for me at the salvage center and I am so happy she did - a collection of silkies all stitched together with insertion stitches.
After carefully picking out the stitches, here is what I was left with - 51 (!!) lovely little floral cigarette silks! How cool is this! I think she paid a quarter for this! lol Doesn't it make you want to start a project with them? I am imagining a vintage look crazy quilt with a lovely little floral silkie on each block...
