Six Word Saturday

Craft Project Finished. Happy About That!!
When I bought all the scraps from the fabric shop last week, I promised myself I would use some of them this week..... And so here is the result, a couple of pillows..... The trim around the edges was some I bought at a flea market earlier in the year. I have used it in a couple of doll house projects also.

I am not entirely sure where the pillows will go, of if I will perhaps sell them, but they are done and I am happy about it.

Next week I am promising my self to do another projects If you have any good ideas let me know. I have been searching the web but so far nothing excites me too much.

Scrap Finds

I "collect" supplies for crafts, miniature making, quilting and all the other things I enjoy doing.

One of my favorite places to "collect" supplies is a fabric store in our area that carries upholstery and home decorating fabrics. They save all the scraps and samples and sell them REALLY CHEAPLY..... My kind of place.

My friend Nancy and I went there recently, hoping to find some fabric .... for a couple projects we had in mind.

Find we did!!!!

Here are the additions I made to my "collection." The total cost to me was less than $4.00!!
Don't you just love a bargain!
I don't know the actual use of the fabric yet but can hardly wait to start figuring it out.

I do use the fabric I find there..... a couple of weeks ago I showed you a coverlet using fabric samples I had gotten from the shop. Click here to see it.
