Garage Sale Finds

As mentioned before, on most Saturday mornings, my boyfriend and I go to garage sales. 
Look what I found this week for .50 cents each!

These 2 bird cross stitches are each worked on a 14" square piece of Aida fabric.  The birds are about 9".  I will gently wash & press them, then I intend to use them in the middle of a patchwork quilt.

Then I found this Bear & Chicken framed cross stitch  for $1.  I hope to remove it from the frame and make a "chicken" quilt out of it. Only last week, I purchase some "egg" fabric that will go with it, along with the chicken wire fabric I have in my stash.  My sister has chooks and has  thousands lots of chicken ornaments throughout her house, so a chicken themed quilt will fit in nicely.
Then I saw this for $2, and being a teddy bear lover, how could I pass it by?  It is 10" high and 12" wide.  My boyfriend did the eye roll and head shake when he saw me pick it up.
Until next post..



  1. fabulous finds...those cross stitches are a treasure!
    will the chair be a giant pincushion or a retreat for a small furry friend? can't wait to see what you do with it.

  2. I recognise those two birds, they were in Cross stitch Australia magazine, quite a lot of years ago!!
