Oh my goodness I nearly fell apart today as I took my youngest to middle school for her camp day. The day the sixth graders get the lay of the land. The excitement of lockers and lunch rotations. She was up fretting over her outfit and painting nails worried about if she would see one of her friends. It didn't hit me until she got out of the car and walked into the school. She didn't even look back and wave. She ran straight into the arms of her friends giggling with excitement...me all flustered...I drove directly to an estate sale for comfort.
While we were driving through five states for our vacation I was stitching away on these little linen pieces.
Small vintage nursery embroidery images that still had some transfer in them were so fun to work with.
I am hoping to finish these up and get them in the shop by next Friday. Fingers crossed.
Just to mix it up a bit I threw in some of Barbara's gorgeous feed sacks to paper piece.
A future pillow?
While in Michigan I snuck away from the family for a few hours to run through an antique store in Traverse City. This image melted my heart.
Alright now if you live in Kansas you can't get these Oz books this cheap!
Over sized books that are in mint condition. Merrill Co. publications.
Merry Mailman with a bow tie and this sunshine and rain school book...wait till you see the images.
I nearly lost it in the store when I came across this picture book of 26 Christmas cards to cut out and use.
An impeccably stitched baby blanket.
Bonnie Blue lost her shoe.
Its the little things...a wave...fairy tales...jolly Santa...tiny stitches...baby quilts.
Headed back to another Estate Sale tomorrow for more comfort.
