Hi everyone. I haven't decided if I want to use one of Vonna's finishing methods or to just sew the Overshot Heart into a flat pillow. I did find the fabric for the back but will I use it? Or linen? When I was in JoAnn's complaining that I can't find nice fabrics, she suggested a quilt shop. ???? Are you kidding me? I can't believe how brain dead I am sometimes. Just because I don't quilt is no reason to not realize they have great fabrics that I could use. While I was looking for fabric in New Wilmington, I decided to continue into Volant to James Creek. My husband was driving and I am white knuckled whether behind the wheel or a passenger because of neck concerns. This time, someone pulled out and we had to slam the brakes. Not really that hard, but enough for the head to whip and my arms immediately went numb for a few minutes. Scares this old lady. I recouped! Here's my purchases.
This darling little wall box (I have a thing for wall boxes and cupboards), which holds 3 x 5 cards perfectly and will probably end up hanging over a desk. The sconce (I also have a thing for sconces) can hold dried berries and such in the bottom, and I bought the grungy candle to go with it. I have them, can't find them, bought another to avoid a scene.
And here are my fabrics. Love them all. I'm starting to make pincushions for the top of my boxes. I found a few more quilt shops that I want to visit and my husband just rolled his eyes. Am I the only one that doesn't quilt but has a thing for fabrics?
Today we went to Jimmy's Italian Store in Ohio for our weekly visit and stopped at the Apple Basket. I had a coupon!!! My purchases there included a lamp (25% off) and another sconce that will hold dried berries.
Those "rags" you see are the Bliss and Hinckley samplers I finished not long ago and haven't framed yet.
And finally, this basket which is a Linda Searcy design and copyrighted. The basket's material is the type I find in shops, sprayed with something that makes it very stiff and obviously mass produced.
A battery operated candle looks great inside which I will eventually purchase. Everything still has its tags - part of my Queen of Returns habit.
I'm sure everyone is drooling over some of the new needlework designs and I found several I will be stitching.
That's it. I'll be drawing a name tomorrow night and will post then. Have a great Sunday. Thank you for visiting!
