*First, I would just like to say that I think my computer is being abducted by aliens. We will see what happens when I try to make a post.
I hope everybody had a fantastic weekend. I was lucky enough to get some stitching time in. I love the folklore of having a spider in a crazy quilt so usually try to add one or more into the works. By doing so, I have made various types and styles of spiders, but I have to say, "This just might be my favorite." I can't even tell you where I got the charm. I have been known to buy 'odd' garments at a yard sale etc. just for the buttons. About a week ago, I ended up with about a measuring cup full of single earrings, odd pieces of jewelry, and 'imperfect' miscellaneous pieces for a dollar. I was thrilled. The folks running the sale were kinda looking at me funny. There was an older fella there, and he asked what I was going to do with them. I told him I like to make crazy quilts so I like to have little treasures on hand. He smiled and said, "Crazy quilts huh." We didn't get to chat as others were needing his attention, but I am just guessing he had a story.
Friday, I went to a downsizing/moving sale and found this beauty.
Now hang on a minute. Look closer. I gave 50 cents and look what I got. I wasn't after the polyester gabradine with the stain or even the fashion statement of the 1960's elderly population. It was this.
It took a matter of minutes to remove them from the dress, and I now have these beauties to use on some fun project.
