I had a wonderful time yesterday at the Fairgrounds Flea Market with Katie and SIL. We got there around noontime and left at 2:45PM as we had to drop Katie to her Dad's. With the humongous crowd and of course various treasures, I felt like we're rats wondering around and being chased by a cat. lol When SIL told me on the phone that there's a lot of old and new stuffs of any kind in there, I knew I had to go. lol That was the first time I went to the Fairground FM and I can see myself going on more in the near future. It's usually every first weekend of the month, excluding July and August due to the State Fair.
I'm sure you don't expect me to go home empty handed, right? Well, I found some old buttons and vintage hankies that I can't live without... and (of course) more various craft and needlework books to fill the voids in my bookshelves. Aside from the Needlework School book (which was from a swap book I'm into), all of the books in the 2nd photo were from the FM.
Antique Victorian Hankies (so delicate) and
various metal & pearly red buttons
Better Scrapbooking, Sewing for the Home, Treasury of Needlecrafts,
Sewing Tools & Trinkets (my fave), Tea Party Time Quilts,
Crazy Quilt Decors, and Needlework School
I found this (photo below) package sitting on the sofa when I got home yesterday afternoon. It's the Sisterhood Stitching pattern (LHN's Home of a Needleworker) that I joined at NNC group with other super talented & accomplished stitchers and finishers... Jessica (who unfortunately doesn't have a blog, yet!?!) was so generous to include Dinky Dyes hand-dyed threads in the package, all in my favorite colors - with antique effects. Thank you so much for your generosity Jess.:) And of course, thanks to Jean for sponsoring the pattern being used. I must say that I envy this pattern coz it's been to various countries already, from Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, US... some places that I've never been to but would love to visit in the future...
