Not a Bad Monday

Today hasn't been bad. Monday's are deadline day at work so they're usually busy busy busy but today was pretty mild. I was actually able to get out of the office for my lunch break. So I drove down to my favorite store....Goodwill. Now I have to explain that I LOVE thrift, junk, and antique stores. I love anything old. There's just something about the history and the spirit of old things. Yes, I know I'm weird. I guess if reincarnation is real, I'm on my 12th life right now.
Anywho, so I was at Goodwill and I stumbled across the bargin of the year....this hand pieced quilt top. Isn't it great?!

While I'm not really into Americana or the patriotic themes, I do love this top. It was pieced beautifully and by someone who knew what they were doing. The very best part of this beauty was the price. You'll never guess how much I paid for this.....ok a number in your head....I bet its nowhere near what the price tag said....ok, I'll tell....I paid.....99 CENTS!!!!! Yep, that's right. I'm not lying!!! So this is offically the bargin of the year. If something else comes up, which I doubt, I will let you know.

So I brought home my new find and put it in the closet along with this one. This was made by a very good friend of ours. Mrs Lavern was the caffateria lady when I was in school. Her husband made this top. He then gave it to Mother, who gave it to me to finish. Someday I will get it and the bargin top quilted. In another couple of weeks I'll have at least 2 more tops to finish. Needless to say I'll be busy.

Well I think I'll head to the studio! As you know I have plenty to do. Ya'll have a good one!
