great find

I'm not much on garage sales but yesterday I stopped at an estate sale and found

this fun bunch of stuff for 5 bucks.  The rotary cutter is worth that, but I also got the large pinking shears (not that I will use it much) a ton of old wooden spools and lots of old bias tape.
  Fun fun fun.
The best is the measuring egg!  At first I thought it was Silly Putty but on closer inspection.... what could be better? And the little white and red contraption is a needle threader, and it works.  Yowza!

Okay now the fun is over and I have to get this top finished.
I do have a finish that I will post soon plus I have a top that I started quilting looked at it and thought 'what the hell was I thinking?'  Any way I will post that soon and see if you all have some ideas for me.


  1. Wonderful shopping, Mary!!! A lot of little cute things for only five bucks! Incredible!

  2. I think we all have a few, what the bleep bleep were we thinking type projects...can't wait to see yours.
