I love to collect sewing paraphernalia. So digging around in the craft bins at thrift stores, I sometimes come away with little goodies.
Most of these items were 29c each.
at times they get in an assortment of crafting books, so I always check
out the book section. This book on cross stitch patterns
really grabbed my interest. It has some really cute patterns.
you know how it is when you have been searching for that one particular
thing that you would really love to grab a hold of? As I was browsing through the books, I found this! The
one craft book that's been on my list for a long time. I almost
couldn't believe it when I saw the title in the pile of books.
Patchwork Patterns by Ruby Short McKim. This was the Quilting bible
back before quilt books were an every day occurence. I've looked for
this book everywhere, even online. I could buy a newer edition on
the Dover website for $10, but when I looked inside this book, it was
marked $1.00!!!! Wooo-hooo. Absolutely made my day!
