I was out and about today running a few errands, going to the Garden Center and getting fuel in the car and on the way home I pulled off the road because I had forgotten to make a phone call while I was in town (we live about 10 miles out). The road I happened to turn up had tons of yard sale signs and one estate sale sign. I was tempted to follow the yard sale signs but went to the estate sale instead. Wasn't much of interest housewares wise but I did make a super find: and all for $1.50

Looks well loved and definately needs a good washing. This was all done by hand

Again all done by hand, this one is ready for binding

There wasn't much fabric but the box alone was worth it
