The Best Yard Sale EVER!!

The plans for today were to stay home and putter..........I had one errand to run so I thought I would check to see if there were any yard sales near where I was going, there was one that advertised "country/primitive crafts" so of course I had to check it out!  It turns out that I knew the woman  and she had some wonderful stuff, she also pointed out that she had fabric that she was selling for a friend!  Within a few minutes I realized that I would need a box to put all the yummy fabric that I was finding, I managed to limit myself to two boxes, LOL. 

Here's what I found........
 There are lots of pieces that were over a yard, many 1/2 yard cuts and many that were fat quarters size or somewhere in between.  I also found a few nice pieces of wool.  I found a few pieces of batting that were large enough to use to practice on "Miss J" , my new mid-arm quilting set-up.
The pieces in the above and below photos are completed and ready to be quilted!
 A completed tea-stained stitchery.
There were also some partially completed things, a bag full of half square triangles, a BOM that hasn't been touched, only the border is missing.

I also found this group of goodies at the same yard sale, I collect salt glazed pottery so of course I had to have the lamp and Christmas plate, there are two Longaberger baskets, the cloth liners are not my style, but I have lots of fabric I can use to make new ones.  The lamp and one of the baskets are sitting on two pairs of black plaid curtains, found some candles, a fun little wooden box, a ladle, and some dish towels and fabric napkins that I didn't include in the photo!

I also found this cute little dress, the hem and neckline are not finished but the rest is finished.

Here are some goodies that I found yesterday at a yard sale, I really liked the frame and thought that I could use it for one of my finished projects at a later date.

Coming soon.......updated photos of the progress of the chicken coop area. 

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
