little pick-me-up

yesterday I went to the thrift store after work. it was a long week & I needed a little pick-me-up.

meet the $12.00 pick-me-up quilt:


the thrill of the find is great, but I have to say that right up there is the feeling I get when I've gotten the quilt home & hang it up to air out.


I love to watch them stretch their legs & lazily dance in the breeze...

I run my hands across them & tell them how pretty they are.


they seem to like it...

Well, you already know I love it. But I love that you are a kindred quilt spirit! :-)

You deserve it! I'm the same, whenever I'm blue or stressed I head to the thrift stores. Very therapeutic.

Beautiful and I'm glad it cheered you up after the last week you definitely needed it

People always tell me I'm lucky in my thrifty finds. I don't think I'm lucky - I think I'm persistent! And hard work pays off. Good find, lady.

$12?! What a score! That would make me feel happier for sure!

what a great find. we found my daughter a skateboard the other day thrifting. I'm trying to get my kids more into thrifting so I can do it again too.

And I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one that talks to fabric/quilts! lol

Wow beautiful. I'm trying to make a quilt out of the stars we recieved fom our homeschooling project. I hope I can get it done before Christmas.



I have never made a quilt before, I hope it turns out almost as beautiful as the one you have shown here.
