This Weeks Treasures

Thank you everyone, for your sweet comments on my Pink Saturday post.  I am really enjoying being part of this fun and very pink blog experience!  I've already met some incredibly sweet and gifted bloggers who also adore the color pink. 

I did a bit of shopping this week.  A trip to Hobby Lobby on Wednesday resulted in some nice additions to my bead stash (like it needed additions!):

Treasures 1

A few things were on sale and few were on clearance!!

I also picked up some large hole paillettes:

Treasures 2

I plan to crochet some edges for my crazy quilt purses using my funky fuzzy yarn and these pretty sequins!

This morning, Scott and I headed up to Elkorn, Wisconsin for the Holy Grail of Flea Markets.  We got rained on but that certainly didn't stop me from finding a few goodies for my stitching!

First, a vintage machine embroidered handkerchief with strawberries on it.  In all years and years of junkin' I've done, I have never seen one of these with strawberries!!!  I also found a pretty little vintage shoe clip.  I love the Jadite colored flowers:

Treasures 4

My vintage embroidery transfer patterns have been rather scarce this season!  Luckily, I found 2 today to add to my collection:

Treasures 3

While dodging the rain in one of the buildings, I found this bagful of pretty trims.  Nothing terribly special but I use braided gimp for a variety of projects and the gold trims are suitable for so many things:

Treasures 6

My final Flea Market find for today is a nice little collection of vintage millinery flowers:

Treasures 5

By the time we were done, the rain had stopped, the sun came out and it was becoming quite juicy outside!  I was glad to get back to our truck and the comfort of being in air conditioning!

In other news, I'm suddenly missing crazy quilting.  CQ is all I've been able to think about so I plan to run my treadle machine this week and sew up a few blocks to stitch on.  I'm wanting to do some new purses.  In the meantime, I had this one sewn up and plan to stitch on it now:

Green CQ Block

This one will have a peacock theme.  Please come back to watch my progress as I stitch on it!

Pam I love the vintage hanky, I collect them myself. But this has to be one of the prettiest. Can't wait to see the progress on your cq, I have a beautiful peacock applique, and will be starting a block soon myself. I promise not to copy!

Looks like we both lucked out this weekend. No flea markets here that are any good, but sometimes the yard sale circuit will yield something good.
