Ebay goodies

I'm having so much trouble writing lately—not much is happening that's exciting enough to talk about. Maybe it's the time of year—it's cold and I don't do much antique hunting in the winter. Or maybe it's the aftermath of being sick—all that lying around didn't help with keeping me motivated. So bear with me—my "voice" will be back.

I can show you some of my recent Ebay purchases. I'm always looking for feedsacks to add to my stash—they're perfect for pillows and the scraps work very well for tissue cozies and sachet stacks. Here are a couple I found this week:
floral feedsack
diamond feedsack
I'm always amazed at how bright and clean these look even though they're sometimes 50 and 60 years old. And I love the set of vintage embroidered baby bibs I won yesterday. Here's one of them:
little puppy bib
There are three and they need just a little embroidery to finish them up. That shouldn't take more than an hour or so. Then I'll trace the designs before selling the bibs on my website. This year I'm going to try to expand my baby section a little. I'm working on some bib and burp cloth ideas—with cute embroidery, of course.

Lovely feedsacks!
The green floral is my favorite. Can't wait to see what pretty things you make.
