Friday, November 16

My hubby has been on vacation this week. It IS hunting season after all.. Yesterday afternoon he watched the children and I went for a drive. I had an hour of precious quiet and peace. So what did I do? Headed right for the local quilt shop. After that, I hit the local junk shop. The quilt shop is in the same building as the florist and as I was going in there was a gorgeous Autumn wreath hanging outside. The colors are fabulous! I love the blueberries, apples and pears. It had such an array of color for a fall wreath. I might just have to go back and grab it. (the price is probably horrid!)

As fate would have it, I found a two large boxes filled with junk and SPOOLS! Probably 150-200 antique and vintage thread spools! I have been searching for these for months! Jackpot!! My grandmother always said 'Two's clutter, three's a collection.' What would she say about 100? 200? Obsession?
