My Weekend Finds

We went to my favorite junk store this weekend, only found a few things this time.  The little raggedy looking bear for $1.00, washboard -$3, the liberty sheep tag $2, candlestick $1, two tea bag strainers (or that's what I think they are) for 25 cents each, the sheep magnets for 25 cents each, and the doillies were 25 cents each.

 I recently did a swap with TJ at Prim Pals and she sent me the cutest little sewing jar, I had lot of jars and buttons, so when I found these sheep I knew I would make some.  I had someone give me some old wooden spools and button packets, so I hope to make several of these up, just add a few rags balls, etc. and they are done.
 I have finally gotten into fall show mode, I am only doing one show this year, and have absolutely nothing made for it. I won this pattern from Maureen at Sweet Meadows Farm and just love the way he  turned out. TJ had sent me some wool and it was perfect for his clothing.  Her patterns are the best.

Not a lot going on this week, need to work on some swap items.  Hope everyone has a great week.


  1. Love your Santa. So proud to see someone else posting items for fall and Christmas. I only do one show and it is Labor Day weekend and a 3 day show. I make fall, winter all year through. I have this past week took time off to make a few patriotic things for myself. I hardly ever keep anything I make and have had some of these patterns for over a year. It's been fun but feel guilty for not working for the show. Sept. will be here before I am ready. Have a great evening.
