I managed to add few more stitches to my quilting project this weekend, still a long long way to go. This time, I told myself, not be a in a hurry to see the result :)

Yard sales items;
This Saturday was the annual yard sales for both my neighbourhood churches. The weather was not so ideal as it was quite chilly, and rainy, fortunately the sales were held indoors. Here are few items that I purchased that are craft related.

This needle case along with the needles, was 0.25cent. 

embroidered table cloth was a $1 , embroidered cases were free to take

pieces of crocheted lace, 0.10cents each

Silk thread box with scissors from Belding Corticelli, was a $1. Google shows that this could be from 1940's, as there are similar items for sale on ebay. I did pull some thread from, one of spools to see if it breaks, it not. 

lots of yarn remnants, each bag was $1.

paid 0.25 cents for these pretty butterfly magnets

Thank you for stopping by for peek,

till next time,


  1. your applique is coming along, another technique on my to try list! Lots of good buys and the yard sale loving the red work and interesting to read the threads are still strong and not breaking due to their age.

  2. I like the lively structure of your quilting. And also the little treasures you've found. You will find the right place for each to use.

  3. Great finds at the church sale! I also enjoy treasure hunting at church sales and have scored some amazing deals on teawares.

  4. What great finds at the church sale, Gaia. And your quilt is really lovely. Such a lot of work!
