For the love of Thrift

Just a sampling of why I am addicted to thrifting.  Oh my.  They just don’t make stuff like this anymore! This darling little wall hanging was irresistably whimsical! And at 79 cents well; how could I NOT?IMG_7790 IMG_7792 IMG_7793 IMG_7795

Flannel & Denim…Done!




I started this with blue flannel and red sweatshirt fabric. I was moving happily along when I ran out of the blue flannel!  I had other flannels, but didn’t want the edges to look out of place, so I cut up a bunch of old jeans and finished up the quilt that way.  I used white cotton for the hand tying, but I’m not sure I like it.  I may have to learn to machine quilt.  What do you think?  Does the hand tied look take away or add to in this case? IMG_7773
