Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to my Daddy. 87 and going strong. Poor guy didn't have much of a celebration with just me and my mama, but he was happy. Hopefully the whole family can get together with him next week.

jelly roll .... fail x 2

I think my ADD must be acting up ..... On the top block I felt lazy and replaced the 9 patch center square ....only I didn't get the measurement right so the sashing is skinny......I don't care and not changing it. On the other block I got some pieces reversed....not going to fix it either. Let's just say I won't be winning any prizes for perfection but I will end up with a quilt.....made my way.

Good Will Good Day

I went to Goodwill after work today and made some happy finds. I usually go in the morning, but now think evenings might be more promising. I bought a new in the box set of glasses made from wine bottles. I googled and they sell for $25. I had to think hard before paying $4.99 for them(yes I am a cheapo). I collect egg plates and was tickled to find this wooden one for 99cents. I also found the glass jar , it is really heavy and I think it's an older piece. I plan on filling it up with some of my buttons or wooden thread spools. My best find was the quilting goodies.....two square up rulers,six quilting templates, and dresden plate templates. I have wanted to make some dresden blocks and didn't have templates. I'm off tomorrow and hope to get caught up on my jelly roll blocks and finish a baby quilt.

I'm thinking of opening an Etsy shop. I ebayed for years but it is just not what it used to be. Anyone have any luck on Etsy? I have a large antique doll collection to sell and lots of other interesting old stuff.
I tried linking to Trift day Monday on Apron Thrift Girl ...hope it works.
