I come from a long line of thrift store and
yard sale shoppers. My grandma is the queen of bargain shopping! If I
ask her to find me some random item, she'll find it within a week.
Me, I don't usually have such luck. My aunt has the bargain shopping
gene too and she found these two fun items for me a few weeks ago.
First, an old twin-sized quilt top (complete with batting and backing fabric).
I love the intricate star pattern in these blocks. Any ideas on the
name of this pattern? I'm definitely going to be basting, quilting and
binding this top into a quilt soon.
Then, she found this weaving loom kit. She knew that I wanted to
try weaving and found this wooden rigid heddle loom (I think). The
directions are kind of mildewed shut, so I'm going to scavenge around
the internet to find some instructions for setting up the loom. (Yes,
this is another fiber project that I don't have time for, I realize).
