August was a good month for treasures at G'Willys.
I found this really neat crocheted piece at the G'Willy in Gig Harbor while Cookie was in dance camp. I must have walked around with it in my arms for an hour trying to decide whether i should get it or not. :) Having that debate with myself...you know the one where you say, "oh i could do that," when truthfully, you don't even know what kind of crochet this is. :)
I haven't decided whether to use it as a throw yet. I put it down on our hardwood floors in our living room and i think i actually squeaked. It would make a dashing rug...Moose said he would never walk on it though, so that could be a problem should he want to get to his chair in the living room. :)
I also found this little throw last week. Made from a bunch of busy nine patches sewn together. It's a tied bound quilt. Right now it is doing a wonderful job of covering our potatoes and keeping them from getting green. :)
Found this little sack for Cookie Monster.
Thought it would make a lovely library bag.
It came with the tags still on it; apparently it was from a children's clothing company in Illinois called Apron Strings. I wonder if it housed a sweet little summer dress in it?
Maybe someday i can contract my mom to make Cookie's initial to replace the "L" on the bag.
There'll be more another day, as i still have to wash up some of the other finds.
Just been running out of time between schoolin' and irish dancin'. :)
Hope you all are having a great week!
