Treasure Found

Don't you just love when you find unexpected treasures. Like reaching in your coat pocket in the fall and finding money you had put in there in the spring and forgotten about. I was hunting through my gold fabrics looking for little gems to go with my fan quilt when I found these. I had completely forgot I had bought these. I got them thinking I would do harvest sky in fall fabrics. I didn't I did it in homespuns.
So I was quite thrilled to find them today. And even more thrilled to find they go so well with the fans. Don't you just love when you find treasures?

  4. Love the fabrics, but just adore that quilt - there is something just so welcoming about it - lucky it is the middle of the afternoon and not late at night or I would just have to go to bed!

  5. Those unexpected finds are great! Funny, but as I pulled out the autumn coats a couple days ago, I was reminded of the time when I was a student and discovered a ten-dollar bill in my coat pocket from the year before. In those days that was big money for me!
