Resale shopping and some vintage fabric finds
Al and I were out shopping at some resale shops today and guess what I found?! A bag of old quilt blocks for $4! There are about 150 blocks in this bag and these in the picture are some of my favorites. I'm going to give them to daughter Lisa because she loves 30's and 40's fabrics.. pretty sure that most of these are in the age group. The part of the bag that I'm not giving to Lisa is a group of nine patches that are soft colors... probably just as old but not really her style. They are not well done blocks but still I love them. I think I'll put them together to make a small vintage looking quilt. When I get them all spread out, I'll snap a picture. I also bought a bag of old buttons.
After shopping the resales, Al and I met with daughter Jenn. She tried on wedding gowns for us and we all fell in love with two of them. She has a favorite she found downstate and now these two... SO... which dress will be the one... dress 1, dress 2 or dress 3? Kind of like House Hunters...lol. I think she's leaning toward dress three... my fav is dress two.. but no matter which one SHE'LL BE BEAUTIFUL! Plans are coming along nicely for the wedding. They have they're venue... a vineyard just outside the city and they have the photographer. There are a lots more decisions to make but thankfully I don't have to worry about most of them. I tried on a dress for the first time today... and ...hmmm... think I need to head to the gym... SOON!
