Catching up and a real treasure of mine

I just am teasing you with this one picture, but I want you to CLICK ON IT TO ENLARGE IT so you can see just how beautiful and intricate the embroidery is. One of my treasures!

Sorry I haven't been back since Friday! I feel like I'm running in a million directions for the last few days and it will get worse! There are just too many things happening all at once!
After my fabulous Friday garage sale finds, Saturday was a bit of a bummer! Even with the curbside giveaways and all the garage sales, I didn't get any great finds, a few bits and pieces, that was IT!
oops.......yes I did, I went back to where I got those half dress forms and they had found one more, a little bigger, same price 5.00, a real steal! So now I have 2 and my sister has 1......we're both thrilled!
I will try to get back here soon with some more news and pics. In the meantime I'm leaving you with a picture of one of my great garage sale finds from years back.....one of my most favorite things that I will never part with.
I'll show you more pictures and tell you what exactly it is in another post soon. Meanwhile, CLICK TO ENLARGE the picture and look at that embroidery.  It is done on those little bits of fabric that are less than 2", some on pieces only just over or 1", different shapes and sizes!
It was a truly FABULOUS FIND and I'll share more on it soon!

Lucy, it warms my heart to think that someone out there appreciate beautiful hand made art! Even if the rest of the family doesn't.
What a great find.

It's kind of sad what people discard, isn't it. So glad that you found it and will cherish it!

Thanks for visiting me and entering my giveaway! Good Luck! Hope you'll visit again!

I love crazy quilts, because I love embroidery. I made one years ago, but lost it in one of the many moves early in my marriage. I've always wanted to make another one. Hey wait--maybe that was mine--LOL! Can't believe it was a garage sale find. Lucky you!
