    Went to a yard sale Sunday with no intention of buying anything, just a little trip(20 miles), even if they did mention sewing stuff. LOL $67 later, here it is plus a couple of horse supplies. ALL the books, ALL the patterns and the binders were FREE. Everything else I bought.

    Waaaaaa. Why can't I ever find great stuff like that???
    Lucky you :)
    The "Garden Patch" pattern in your 3rd picture is a fun PP project to do. It did it years ago - one of my first PP attempts. My DH framed it in 100+ yr old barnwood, and it is hanging in my kitchen dining area. I named it "Garden Special"
