I spent $30 on these 18 hand pieced quilt blocks from many years ago. My total bill was $63.50 meaning everything else I showed you totaled only $33.50!
Aren’t they beautiful? But the right side is a mere half of the prize – take a close look at this hand stitching.
I am so undecided as to what to do with them. If I put them together in a quilt top, I’ll never be able to see those perfect stitches again and of course I’ll machine quilt it and I think the maker of these blocks deserves more than a quilt machine quilted with straight lines.
What would you do with 18 blocks? What if you had just one block?
This big picture was $5.00 and even though I didn’t love the picture, the frame is so nice – 3 rows of beading!
This picture was $6.00.
Here are some pages from inside those two books – all about organization.
I want to study these pictures.
I also have this set of bookends from a relative.
This will fit on my soffit with the other dog pictures – and notice the dog is a JRT! Price – $1.00.
Kids books – 5 for $1.00 or $.25 each. I love kids books mostly for the illustrations.
I believe this is a brand new book – I could give it as a gift.
By the author and illustrator of The Hungry Caterpillar. This one is well loved.
And as an old piano teacher, this is pretty funny!

Wow, such treasures! My thrift stores are not much different from yours, I’d imagine. You just have to look and think differently. Consider everything you see – you just never know what you’ll find.
My poor hands that cannot hold a needle any more. They do hurt but never as bad as when I get into bed at night. I have many creams, gloves, pills but this is the bottom line. If I didn’t play the piano my hands would be claws. Not looking for any sympathy but hands were in the conversation recently and I said I’d post the pictures.
Super Bowl tomorrow! Are you having a party? Maybe you’re not even interested enough to watch. Tell me what your plans are.
And please tell me what to do with my beautiful navy and gold blocks!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
