Thrifted Goodness and a Sad Quilt
I went to the thrift store today while Aaron was at physical therapy and I came home with some great things. Our thrift store is very iffy--sometimes I get great stuff and other times it's a wasteland. I found this fabulous teacup on my second pass down the dishes area, and the crocheted doilies were hanging clipped together near some place mats. The doilies are very finely done. Can you imagine the time someone put into them?
I found this quilt, too. It made me so sad that someone took this beautiful quilt that this lady lovingly made for a family member and donated it to the thrift store. I wonder why? So many hours and such beautiful colors...it was made in 2007 and was signed by the original quilter. It will have a good home with me. I'll appreciate every stitch.
