Fun Time at Yard Sales

Yes, we did go to St. Martins for the Old Home Week. Even with the threat of rain, we decided to go yard saling, just to check it out. I came across a red cornflower rose bowl and was so excited as I collect cornflower crystal. To top it off, even with it being a bit dirty, it was very cheap so I immediately bought it. When I got it home, I washed it and presto, just like new. The red cornflower is quite rare too. I didn't care that it started to pour rain before we were done.

We have been so very busy lately. We were on a day trip to Moncton yesterday and tomorrow, we are going to spend lunchtime with my Mother to celebrate her 90th birthday. Then we come home and pack up the 5th wheel trailer and go camping in St. Andrews which is next to the Atlantic Ocean. Hopefully, the weather will be nice but if it isn't, we will make do. We plan on a day trip to Calais, Maine, to look at more quilting fabric. One never has enough you know.

Today has been hot and humid but at least it hasn't rain for TWO days. By dark tonight though, it was back to fog and humidity big time.

I have also been working on my quilt. I now have 8 squares done out of 24. My problems is to find time to work at it. Maybe by the time I blog again, I will try to take a picture of the blocks that are done.

Well must close and start getting ready for tomorrow. Have a great weekend everyone.

Mumzy...I do hope the weather breaks for you in the east as well as for our BC friends and family. This has been a summer of weather trials!

Yes we are popping into NB for a few days Labour Day weekend. DH's Mom is celebrating her 75th and wants all the kids there. We are flying in and out of eye Thursday morning...early Sunday afternoon departure. If I thought I would have a spare hour or so, I'd definitely look up friends!

I can't wait to see photos of your quilt in the making! I'm now trying my hand @ Hand Applique by Machine (Beth Ferrier)---so far so good!

Wishing you cool breezes!

Yes, I still can't believe you snapped that up for only $2!!!! I'm never going to beat that find ;o)

Glad to hear your visit with Gram went well. I miss her very much and wish I could come and see her soon.

Have fun in St. Andrews! I miss going there, especially to Calais :o(

Isn't it wonderful when you find a treasure that is also a bargain? I love yard sales, even though I seldom find anything special.
