Once again I almost forgot to link up a UFO that I want to finish this month. Keep reading to find out what I have the quilt hanging off of!
In June I shared this small quilt in my post about hanging your quilts on a garage door with magnets. This really works well for taking photos of your quilts. I chose a small quilt this month…..hopefully I’ll get it done!
We did a little road trip on Saturday and spent a little time with this wild ape…..isn’t he cute!From there we made a stop at the Sutliff bridge that goes over the Cedar River. It is in Lisbon, Iowa and it is just a “little” bigger than our little town of Fairport. We visited this bridge last year for the first time…..it is amazing what is close by and we have never been too. What a neat walking bridge! In the next photo I am standing on the other side of the river looking across at the bar.We were having a great time.I even saw this eagle that reminded me of Iggy…..We also found a garage sale and look what we brought home….remember my quilt UFO….here is what was under it!I have never seen a stool like that, have you? We couldn’t talk the guy down on the price so we paid $50 for it but I still think that was a good deal. We’ll need to clean it up but look at the detail, the feet have little glass balls in them. The height of the stool can also be adjusted.
I was using a automotive stool but….finally broke it so I am hoping this one will last a long time.
I also bought a bag of 16 vintage dresser scarves which were marked $12 but I got them for $8. They will need to be cleaned before I can do some quilting on them. I’m going to have to search for information on cleaning them as I know I have read about it before.This one is really beautiful and old, there are a few holes and spots but look at the workmanship in it!
