Queen of the House and a find

Wow! I love a fast stitch.
It only lasted a few hours

"Queen of the House" by 4 My Boys
I will most likely use that fabric for a finish, maybe a flatfold??

I went to my very first garage sale today and look what I found..


Three flower scissors frog, now to just find bases for them.
They were only 1.00 each.


Remember my neighbors??
Brianna and I went for a visit yesterday
We were just as happy to see them as they were to see us
Thanks for visiting.
Have a super duper sunny warm weekend

YGG on finding those flower frogs!! You got an excellent deal at $1.00 a piece. Good thrifting! You shouldn't have any problem finding bowls for them - just check the SA or Good will.

Your little piece is so cute - you just have to love those pieces that only take a few hours!

Your little kitty is so cute! I think that fabric will work great with it. Great find on the flower frogs. I have been searching for one here for about 6 months now with no luck. My quest continues. LOL Brianna looks like she is having a lot of fun.

Love the cat design! I haven't forgotten your undead kitty by the way, but I don't see much point posting it while the airports are closed

Siobhan said...

What a beautiful finish! Congratulations! Love your garage sale finds.

We have horse neighbors, too. I keep meaning to bring the camera when I am on my walks so I can snap some pics of them. I did get some of the cows until they came closer to the fence where I was & I ran the other way. I grew up in suburbia so it's still very bizarre to me, to have big animals so close by.

Have a great weekend!

Robin said...
