Summer is in full swing here in Big Bear, and that means it's garage sale season! My recent finds include:
... a hand-crocheted wool (NOT acrylic) granny square afghan for $5 -- someone must have spent an entire winter crocheting this! A steamer trunk -- not very good condition, but only $7, and we'll work on restoring it eventually.
... twenty yards of fabric, mostly Christmas colors, for $4
... and a set of ninteen hand-appliqued blocks for $1! Of course the challenges here are the hideous colors and the fact that there are only ninteen blocks, not twenty -- but I couldn't pass them up. Someday we'll see what I can do with 'em!
Otherwise, summer is keeping us extremely busy. The kids and the grandpuppies were up for a nice visit, the garden is in bloom, and both the quilt guild and the museum are very active right now. Life is good!
