In my last post, I'd mentioned that I would share what I came home with from the Gathered Treasures show in Mansfield. I've been slightly tardy in sharing with you. Baseball is in full swing (ha ha) in our house and with 2 boys playing on 4 teams we're running here and there.
I spied this wonderful basket in the booth across the aisle from mine when we were setting up our booth on Friday afternoon. The owners of the booth were completely set up and gone before we arrived so I had to wait it out until Saturday morning to see if the basket was still there.
Fits in great with my collection of antique baskets - and it's just the way I like them - worn and not perfect.
From Alice I purchased some wonderful as is wool. The top piece is my favorite.
I did not buy this wool to be a cat bed!
I repeat, this wool is not a cat bed!
I also purchased some wool pieces that Alice hand dyes. The middle 2 pieces are green and the bottom are oranges. The colors are not showing up correctly.
Linda (you know...Linda!) and I swapped, this is my haul from her.
And Angie (you know....Raggedy Angie!) gifted me this swan that she made from a feedsack. Angie - it looks great on this old wooden box. Thank you. Be on the look out for a box coming your way this weekend!
Sitting and waiting for baseball games to start gives me a little free time - just enough time to pull loops through and hook up this little cat. It's a design from Robin of Bird in the Hand Primitives. Now I need to hook something with an orange cat!
