New finish and some goodies I found just perusing shops

Well, had a good day in Atlanta, traffic not bad and stopped by a antique store and got good deals.
First is a cross stitch book, 2 bucks, that was loaded with the different stitches, finished, infomation on blackwork, darning,open work, how to frame, how to make pillows, just good stuff!

My new pin cushion for gold 26 needles~~ Very cute and primitive and has a weighted feature for easy use. Four bucks.

wooden heart buttons DMC floss
1888 Ohio Quilt Posey

2 over 2 on 32 ct antique ivory fabric
Design The Sampler Girl/ Tanya Marie Anderson
The Companion Booklet
frame is from Ebay


  1. Great find at the thrift/antique store.
    Your finish is adorable and the frame is perfect.

  2. That book is a truly useful find.

    Your posey looks great in its frame.
