Sunday Stash... vintage scraps
A week or so ago, my quilting buddy Cynthia found a source for vintage scraps. She shared the source and I fell hard. We both ordered some and mine arrived on Friday. We ordered from A Piece of Cloth-textile merchants in Australia. What a bunch of wonderful vintage scrap heaven! My husband just does not get it. He thinks I am quite off my rocker to have ordered what he calls "somebody's garbage!" It am totally tickled with it and I can see using the scraps in all sorts of small projects like needlebooks and stuff. The prints are just zowie and apparently are from the 1920s to the 1950s. The scraps are a variety of sizes too from small 2" by 3" to larger chunks.
Yesterday I met up with some of the fabulous ladies from the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild. Darlene has organized a travelling Coffee Klatch each Saturday. Yesterday it was in my neck of the woods. It was so much fun to have a cup of coffee and a goodie in a cute little coffee shop and talk about all things quilty. I think we were quite loud!
And my scrap basket is overflowing!!! I had a busy weekend! I even got some GARDENING done this morning!!!! Spring break is a week away!
