We, of course, had to browsed at all the displays again. I think hubby just focused on the Counted Thread and Cross Stitch, while I had to look at everything over and over... it's our last visit at the fair anyway! I can spend an entire day just looking and browsing at the Fabrics and Threads entries.
There's hubby staring again at my works on display!
I hope he's admiring them ha! lol
Another thing that I love at the fair are the "Flea Markets". As the saying goes, you'll never know what kind of treasure you'll gonna find there. I got lucky to purchase this antique pincushion (with some bunch of rusty pins still on it). I can tell that this pincushion was used a lot by the original or previous owner. I can't tell though if the fabric was muslin or flour sack, but it is housed on a pretty crocheted case. Hubby bought me this coin purse shell, he knew I was checking this kind of item online weeks back, and we got lucky to find some at the flea market. He even checked the purses one by one to make sure he'll get the one with "Made in the Philippines" tag... lol
Antique Crocheted Pincushion & Shell
On Thursday and yesterday, me and hubby went to a couple of sale in town. He didn't get much but I got a bunch of stash. The photo below are just some of them. It's actually a mix of everything: scrapbooking stuffs, ribbons with ladybugs designs, lots of embroidered napkins with cutworks, set of wooden bowls (Made in the Philippines), and a lot more (not pictured). We also went at the Farmers Market yesterday morning (around 8:30AM) and I got a bunch of veggies. I even got squash blossoms which I seldom able to get at Oriental Stores.
Oh, hubby brought me a local newspaper this morning where winners at the Fair were published. I didn't realize a lot of people in our county, Marshall, participates at such event.:) I wish we have a stitching group nearby. It feels so nice to rub shoulders with fellow "fabric stabbers" once in a while.
Well everybody, I think I better got back to work now. Have a great day and happy stitching! I need to send a lot of emails pretty soon! Sorry for the delays to those of you who are waiting!
