First up is this wooden tray. I have been looking for something to hold my toiletries on my bathroom counter that I could paint gold as the fixtures in my bath are gold. I thought this might work.
It has a pretty floral and fruit piece on the front. I like the grapes.
The rest was all fabric. I've never mentioned sewing because this is my thrifting blog but I did thrift this, I am a fabric and sewing notion hoarder. I have bins of fabric in my garage. I cannot resist buying pretty fabrics and threads and yarns, etc. Patterns too. I have some from the 80's that I just can't get rid of. I go through them from time to time to see what I have, think of what I might make with them and put them back. This is an enjoyable experience for me. I do not always complete the project but I love the planning : ) Reminds me of my great-grandma, she had boxes of things in her garage and we would watch her spend an afternoon happily going through the boxes, rearrange, look at and then put back and we would shake our heads. I do the same thing! I've had a lot of it since my 20's when I had all the time in the world. Nothing like a bunch of projects to make you face your own mortality! Wondering will I live long enough to complete all the projects I would like to do, have bought the supplies for?! Needlepoint, cross stitch pictures, quilts, clothes for me, clothes for little girls, clothes for little boys, dolls, home decorating, etc! Don't get me wrong, I have finished a lot of things during that time too! This is a brown and white gingham, about 4 yards, which is pretty popular right now. I have a cute blouse pattern I could use it with, little girl's sunsuit maybe.
About 2 yards of black dots on white jersey fabric.
About 8 yards of this white diamond shape and dots on black jersey.
And this pretty tulip print with a black back ground, about 6 yards. I really like this print and have already gone through my stash and found the perfect top pattern.
I did pretty well, if you know anything about buying fabric you know it runs anywhere from 5.99 and 12.99 for dress and blouse fabrics. So I did amazing in the yardage department for sure!
