Thrifting and Ice Storm

I did not go anywhere this weekend. We had snow Friday night with ice and freezing rain on top. I stayed in my pajamas all weekend -- organizing my stash, cutting fabric, and getting ready for the quilt retreat this week. I did get some good deals last weekend. Red, blue & tan wool spindles, a hand painted round container with sheep made from sheep wool, a signed watercolor titled "Kent Island Geese", and a bucket full of crab hammers.

I found an iron at the dollar store to take to retreat -- $9. I read about it at Jo's Country Junction.
When I was reorganizing my stash (the downstairs stash excluding the flannels), I pulled out this notebook with directions to Thimbleberries projects from 2003 and 2004. I am making the watermelon placemats.
My son is the artist! Thanks Brian, I love it.
