Actually this post should be called - "Sunday stash, I have a great husband, and the loot you can get for $5 at a garage sale!"
Yesterday at almost 5:00 p.m. my hubs called me from a garage sale. He was enroute to picking up our son at a friends house. "You have to see this" he said! "There is a garage of fabric and notions here". He told the person running the garage sale that I am a seamstress and would be on my way over!
I was shocked......my husband was supporting my habit! We live in a very small house (950 s.f. not including the basement and thank goodness for the basement) and there are boxes of fabric in our closet, in our bedroom and they make their way into the living/dining room (aka "the studio") when I am working on a project which is pretty much daily! So, the fact that he let me know about the sale and encourage me was so sweet!
Most of the fabrics were very 1970's and not my style, and lots of wools and garment making fabrics.
The boxes were stacked on every wall in her studio which was a 2 car garage. Needless to say, I was a bit overwhelmed and looked specifically for cotton fabrics. I could have spent hours there but they were wrapping up for the day and I had to move quickly.
In a box marked "aprons" I found the three prints above. I also found about 4 yards of eyelet! Everything was $1 per pound.
I just happened to have this Suzuko Koseki on my table and I think the trim is smashing with it. I'll have to try and figure out a project to marry the two.
Not super exciting but very useful tiny pin dot and a fun retro floral.
All in all I'm proud that I was able to restrain myself : )
I left feeling that I need to use the fabric I have however precious it may seem. I certainly don't want to have a 2 car garage full when I'm too old to sew : )
