We went to an estate auction this past Saturday. We had been on the fence about going as weather was not all that great. Then just decided to go!
We were there all day! The folks that were running the auction really were not as organized as they should have been so was a slow one!
Was an old basket full of textile stuff so I bid and won. Had four pieced quilt tops mixed in with some other things.
These tops are quite the mix. The blocks are all mostly pieced by hand. The fabrics used all range in age. Seems like someone got into a box of very old scraps and mixed them up with newer ones. Saying 'new' but not as in today's fabrics! Not sure if I will work on them fixing up borders and quilting or leave as is.
They look pretty just hanging around or on a chair folded.
We have some other wonderfu treasures will share on another post! Wasa fun day. Was snowing some flurries when DH took some stuff out to truck one time! Was like OH NO! our stuff may get wet! hahaha! It stopped. We were really not that far from the farm.
I did some Christmas shopping too. So we are almost done! We do not buy many gifts anymore. All grands are out of town/state so easier to send gift cards.
Postage is so high on shipping! Bought my first book of stamps at $9.20!!
Well best get to a sewing project I agreed to for do for some one else.
Will share that later too!
Oh my just heard on radio there is sleet/snow up road! Came in early today!
We are getting yet another chance at snow this week, today through Thursday!
Poor Easter Bunny maybe hiding eggs in Winter weather come Easter!
