Yesterday was the annual "Talbot Trail of Yard Sales". This year we headed east, and here are some of my treasures. First, I bought some vintage aprons, which will be cut up for quilts. No need to get reproduction fabrics when you have the real thing!
Black & white enamelware bowl, a cross-stitched picture, a tea cup with tartan and Scottish thistles (Carol, I'll serve you tea in this one someday soon!), Ikea lamp, a small sewing basket, a McCoy bowl (matches my studio paint!) a cute plate with Scottie dog painted on it, a "Pansy" book from 1903, small table cloth (all four corners are stitched with the same scene, vintage needlebook and sewing kits...and underneath it all? Six yards of a nice neutral cotton print. This will make a nice quilt backing.
The verse on this piece of cross-stitch "The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings." is from Robert Louis Stevenson.
