I took my oldest back to college the end of August. On the way back home, I stopped at a few Goodwill stores in Iowa. I've not had time to stop before. I had lots of fun browsing.
|Doily's and thread 'chair'|
I found the thread 'chair' at the first store. I've seen them before (I donated one to the raffle for the TOGA I attended). The other one's I've seen have a pin cushion in the seat of the chair. I may have to make a pin cushion for this one. The chair will hold three spools of thread on either side of the seat. There is also a place to store scissors behind the back of the chair. It also has a cute little storage area under the seat. I don't know what is supposed to go there.
|2 different 'Buttoneer's'|
|Look what I won!|
At the last thrift store I found these patterns. They were only 25 cents each. I bought them for the applique in the patterns. I'll probably give the purse pattern to one of my friends who makes lots of purses.
Lastly, I found these buttoneers at two different thrift stores. The gold set has all the little plastic pieces to attach buttons with. I thought these were so cool when I was a kid. I always wanted one, then I found two in one day. The instructions for the gold one is written in English and Japanese.
I won the second prize at Sandi's blog back in mid August. These lovely Christmas goodies came in the mail the day before I left town for a week. Sorry I didn't get this posted before now. Sandi even included a note in a vintage Santa card. Sew cute! Thanks Sandi! I'll have fun with these great fabrics.
