I guess I got sidetracked and didn't take pictures of the other rooms. There was one that just had wool, wool samples, patterns, etc. On the porch there were lots of 1930's prints. Flannels and soft things were downstairs. There was also a holiday room - sure wish I would have taken more pictures!
Of course there were plenty of things here that I couldn't live without...(as always...forgive the poor picture quality - aside from being a rotten photographer, I took them in poor light in the loft at Aunt Nancy's house.
I did not NEED any of these! The Crazy Eight Strip Teaser was so unique that I thought I had to have it. The finished size is 44" x 44". I did show restraint by only purchasing the pattern and not the kit! Mexican Stars is another pattern that is very unique, although now that I look at the pattern, one of the requirements is a seam ripper. I'm thinking that is a very bad sign! This quilt is 34" square and would make a nice table topper or a wall hanging. Again I showed restraint - the kit was really nice! The only kit I bought was for the little wool pin cushion - they were so cute - Linda (my SIL) and I each bought one. Now we need to get together and make them. I just made 30 pin cushions to take to Galena - do you really think I NEEDED this kit to make another one???
After we left Ann's - we found the local Goodwill. Linda and Johnna love to shop GW and find a lot of treasures there. Ever since I decided that I NEED to add wool to my stash, I thought GW and thrift shops would be a great place to find cheap wool - in men's suit jackets. I was not disappointed! Wool jackpot!! I bought 6 suit jackets for a total of $24! I thought that was a pretty good deal. Of course I will have to find the time to tear them all apart, but that is on the to-do list. If nothing else, these will make good backs for pin cushions. Johnna found a couple of cute shirts while we were there. Linda was busy helping me!
After GW, it was time to head back to Hackensack for a quick bite to eat and to get to the guild meeting!
More on that later...
Have a great day!!
