I got 1, anybody gimme 2?

I went to an auction yesterday...outside. It was an estate auction of a farming family and would have been incredibly fun if it hadn't been so hot. but I had a good time and came home with some treasures. I was lured by the ad in the paper which listed "lots of material" and "sewing notions" and "craft supplies". This lady was definitely a busy one! And she saved everything, I think.

I did score some fabric. Actually 4 tall kitchen bags stuffed full and ready for the laundry after sorting. Some of it is almost coarse like feed sack. And some obviously leftovers from a project as you could see where a sleeve had been cut out. I love this one with the little boy "imagining".
This one is clearly retro .

And here's a sampling

That retro one is nice. (Keep it away from Rock Chick, she LIVES for those prints.) And it looks original, too. Good stuff.

LOL now I just have to figure out what to do with it once it's all washed...which may take awhile. I guess, if nothing else, I can pile it up in front of leaky windows for insulation *G*

I guess I don't know Rock Chick...oh someone else to stalk...I mean, read :-)

There was sooo much 'stuff' there. Some people are really sneaky tho. I watched a woman take a box of buttons and make off with them. My friend said she was probably going to put them in another box she was interested in. I didn't know you could do that.
