Iris is a beautiful soul...
You can find her at "sting my heart" come join us next week.
Our Dear hostess of "Thankful Thursday" is a gift to us all. Here it is her birthday and it is She who is the gift.
Yesterday I mentioned the trip I made to glean the garage of a couple. They had a friend who owned a fabric store. The man passed away and his widow turned the fabric store into a quilt shop. .
I had a $100. budget and got to go through the stuff and choose what I could make use of.
She was very generous.
We had a real nice visit. Two artist souls meeting over a common interest. We talked as I went through stuff for two hours. Very nice couple.
I had asked God for the things I found. A long time ago, after leaving my project to run to the store for another package of bias tape to finish my job (an annoyance at best), a wish for a variety of these was spoken.
Well I think I will not soon have that interruption....:)
Bias binding , Hem tape hem lace in every color that I normally use.
Enough for quilts and wide skirts so amazing! 10 for a $1. and then several more for good measure. Very generous.
I only took what I could make use of, and the bounty is so very evident!
The husband was very generous as well with some findings.
There is some drapery tape in the package.
Serger thread is new!
The cabochons too! They were a request of God when I was making the beaded cabs some time back. They are perfectly imperfect.
This is all "child size" knit collars and cuffs.
Now day clothing with cuffs and collars only sell in high end stores for they are costly for designers who don't even hem things that they might keep costs down.
Polyester satin ribbon and patterns for the kids and for myself.
Sizes to keep them in for a few years.
They are mostly all new.
This is the fabric. I was picky. There are several things that are very nice here. She would measure a yard at 1 1/2 or so very generous.
I got many necklaces for Dove and a watch for dash.
It all incorperated into the studio without too much displacemenet.
