Thrifting Saturday was so much fun!! Look at this pile of wool! The white blanket in the background was $5 and is the thickest wool blanket I've ever seen! When they grow up all of these things want to be softies. They told me so! LOL The black square is a wool skirt. The sweater is a tiny thing, but nicely felted and awesome colors! I have a list of softies I want to make (and an awesome one suggested by Jane): bird, squirrel, chipmunk, bunny, opossum, etc. Ellie wants a platypus!!
My lovely friend Pam suggested a swap for a pig. I asked for some of her fabric scraps. In case you didn't know, Pam is a quilter, which is something I am not as I don't have the patience or the skills! I definitely got the better end of this deal! This is 9 pounds of fabric, including beautiful cotton prints and wool! Woo hoo! On top is a sweet mini quilt top!! Thank you, Pam!! *smooch*
Does anyone know of someone who makes and sells shawls? If you or someone you know is interested in selling or swapping for a softie or 2 let me know.
