New Old Treasures


My friend Miriam and I went to the Annapolis Quilt Show today. They have a booth that sells items guild members no longer want.  You never know what you will find there.  Miriam tossed me a little baggie and said it looks like something I'd like.  It turned out to be 3 hand crochet collars and a set of crochet cuffs. Sunday is half price day so I got all four items for $3.00 :) Score :) 
I'm not sure what I'll do with them but I'm certain it won't be anything like this :)
Not sure which is the front or back.  I'm going to have to play
with it for a while. 

In my head I know exactly what I want to do with this.  I'm thinking round necked tunic in a taupe color and the neck size will miraculously be the same size as this collar.  :)

 The cuffs are gigantic.  They fit around my upper arm. Somebody did not check her guage when she started her project.  :)    Hmmmmm maybe the top of a pair of socks?? 
Collar #2

Collar #3

Vintage Slip with hand embroidery
And it fits :) 


In the Blogosphere you can add pearls to your
underwear or night gowns and wake up in the morning
with perfect hair :)





Annapolis Quilt Show

Here are some of the memorable quilts at the show. Small show but a nice way to kill a couple of hours. The best vendor at the show has nothing to do with quilting. The Linen Lady's booth is the best.   Will post pics of those treasures later but now here are some of the quilts :)


I'm a sucker for the pink and brown quilts :)



Quilted by my friend Debbie Werker :)
Her quilting rocks :)
