Goodies Galore

You might remember back a bit ago someone contacted me saying they were cleaning out their sewing room and was I interested.  I was interested.  We met and I found homes for all of the goodies.

A bit ago, she contacted me again…she had more and was I interested.  I said yes!  I never know what is coming my way when I say yes and that is part of the fun!!

Check out this stack of patterns.

These two were my favorite.  It would be fun to sew a couple dresses for granddaughters’s so impractical.  It’s too expensive!!  Who knows…someday maybe.

I liked the bag.  I’ve always wanted to do something with prairie points.  FUN!There were more goodies…..see?Yarns and fabrics…started projects.

Here was an unfinished project.  It will be perfect for a charity quilt project.  I sent it and another on to Ronda.  She said she could use some projects so I happily sent some things her way.

It’s going to be awesome.  I can’t wait until she finishes it and we can show it off here on the blog.

Thanks so much for thinking of me Megan!!  I so appreciate it.

Speaking of goodies.  LOOK!!!  Linda sent me shirts.

I’ve been hunting for some ever since Linda gifted us this book…

and I saw this quilt in the book.

Fun news…I’ve found a couple myself too.  I am so tempted to squeal right out load when I find them in the store.  SERIOUS!  I’m hoping to start the quilt next year.  Until then I’ll keep hunting.  THANKS SO MUCH Linda…both Lindas..the one who gifted the book and the one who sent along some shirts!!  This might have to be called “My Linda Quilt”.

  1. That is a cute pattern for girls’ dresses, Jo. Here you have a free box of fabric and other goodies all available for your use, and you say that making dresses is “too expensive”? Isn’t making a child’s dress the same as making a quilt? You choose fabric, cut and sew, do a little handwork and there you are, a completed item!
    You can even make dresses out of men’s shirts. You pick those up at the thrift store all the time. I have cut down men’s shirts to make little boy’s shirts, using the same buttons and buttonhole plackets. Think “out of the box,” if you really want to make something for your grandchildren.

    I love the bag pattern! I’d be happy to send Ronda some projects. I have a shirt project with pattern already started that probably wont get done. And I sorted all my 2 1/2″ strips yesterday into colors and anxious to get rid of them. I have a stack of neutrals that Bonnie Hunter would love. I just found out I have breast cancer and surgery next week so I felt the need to clean and sort. Hubby took a load of stuff to Goodwill yesterday. Don’t think you would have wanted any of it but it is gone. No cottons, just other types of fabrics like Black out drapery lining and satins and wool.

  3. I often admire especially children’s patterns on blogs (so cute!) but I am not a garment sewer so they don’t tempt. It is so generous of Megan to share and for you to share with us! Have a great weekend!

  4. Those shirts will be a wonderful add to that quilt, lucky you. Its always wonderful to take stuff no one wants and find it a good home. Looking forward to Ronda’s completion, she works wonders with items sent her way.

  5. Carol Lorraine Stearns, I am so very sorry to hear of your recent diagnosis and upcoming surgery. I will be holding you close in my heart for successful surgery and full healing. Know that we are out here in the world thinking of you during this difficult time!! Hugs and smiles!!

    If you don’t find other takers, I would love to have your 2.5″ strips and/or the neutrals. I make comfort quilts and never seem to have enough neutrals. My email is in case you want to contact me. Jo recently gifted me with some fabrics that your neutrals will go well with.

  6. Jo, I made all of my daughter’s dresses and leggings and many of her dressier tops when she was growing up and as a quilter, I guarantee it’s much less expensive than quilting! We were a one-income family and I had to economize.
