Quilt Show Goodies

I've been having a problem all morning trying to get my pictures to download. What would we do without our computers? It's so very frustrating when things don't work! I need to remind myself how far we have progresses in my lifetime, and not get so upset.

So, on with the show...
I have a "thing" for soup tureens. To me they are simply beautiful. So when we looked at the first booth and I saw this tureen, I knew I had to have it. Unfortunately, they only took cash. Thank goodness Gail was kind enough to foot my bill.
Doesn't it look so happy on my buffet? I'm going to let it be an only child for awhile, before introducing it to it big family.

I don't know why it hasn't occurred to me before now, but I believe I'm a civil war girl. These fabrics are the perfect muddy colors I love. So I bought a few to add to my stash. Hopefully some of these will go with my baskets, or else I'll have to keep shopping.
I also have a need for some pink 30's. So I added some to my stash.
These colors just caught my eye and so I had to buy them. Do I have plans for these? No of course not! I just liked the colors.
I also bought a few antique laces, but they seem so boring all alone. Someday I'll put them to good use, then I'll tell you about them, hopefully!

It's been awhile since I've been to a quilt show, as you can see, I had lots of fun!
Our Guild is having their show in October. The best thing? The vendor that I got the tureen from is going to be there. Hurray! This time I will have cash! I'll be ready for them. Hopefully with all my duties, I'll be able to spend so time shopping.

Off to the machine. I am working on something small and I need to finish so I can show you tomorrow. So I'll stop talking and get back to work!

Take care, Brandie

You certainly did find some treasures! All your fabric choices are perfectly selected. I used to go to a wonderful quilt show in Ft. Worth, Texas. I'd attend on Sat. just to look around and share in the wonder with my quilting friends, then I'd go back on Sun. with my cash, checks, and credit card and go wild shopping.
