so, next Tuesday is my birthday. may 24th. and I am a b-day freak. I always try to make a huge deal of mine, and I always have a lot of fun. And, good things always happen around my birthday, like Stephanie mentioning this new fabric thrift shop, about 3 minutes from my house-where these lovely fabrics came from.
and these wonderful little buttons. The prices at this place are garage sale prices-I couldn't believe it.
amazing patterns, which are a real weakness for me right now, even more than fabric. left to right, starting at the top row: we have a transfer, mushroom needlework kit, crocheted hat and mittens patterns, more needlework on a swanky shirt, more embroidery transfers, decals for crafts projects, and a great flower needle work kit.
a special little bird dish, that I couldn't resist
and "oh my god, I'm freakin' out" crocheted bird patterns! okay-really I just about lost it when I found these. I need to learn how to crochet NOW. These are all worked in what appears to be single crochet, in a circle, not hard right? Imagine the cool color combos, wool types (fuzzy yellow mohair! pink and red alpaca! add some crazy stripes,we are ready to go!) ohhhh.
**update** April 2007-
I have been getting requests to swap/copy/trade these patterns with people, and unfortunately this post is 2 years old and I no longer have these patterns-sorry!
