I was only finding a few small things here and there and then I turned the corner! If I had another $50 to spare there are two other things that would've come home with me too, but it's just way too close to Christmas for that nonsense.
So, what jumped into my bag?
This is everything I love about quilting - how your color choices and pattern choices and fabric placement can totally change a quilt.
Dave was teasing me after I bought this about how I have "personal pickers". I asked this dealer last week to bring me some quilts and this week he did. :-) I spend quite a bit of time cultivating relationships at the flea and it does pay off.
I could not resist the charm of these cherry trims.
This church is BIG, much bigger than my others. Those little santas are in wood sleighs with pipe cleaner Santas. They were unusual enough to come home. The round mica Santa in the back? Well, enough said there, right?
In case that was the last flea of the year, it was a good finish.
I am off to let the children make their gingerbread houses. This is my least favorite activity every year. Lord, give me strength.
P.S. The holiday is rapidly bearing down and lots of folks will drift off for a week or so. I will open the Valentine swap next Sunday, December 28th I think, and close the sign up on Jan 5th or whenever we are full. I am going to run it through Etsy I think, as long as I can sort out if that is allowed. That way you can enter your shipping info and pay your shipping fees via paypal. An added bonus is that when the spots are full the listing will close itself, so there will be no questioning and counting of heads. If you are interested try liking Makin' Projiks on facebook or etsy to give you the soonest heads up.
