I’m just a few blocks walking distance from a huge thrift store–three stories to be exact. It can be very picked over, but not too many people are interested in the craft section. I found this little pink owl with babies a few weeks ago and this quilting book, put out by Sunset in 1974. There are some strange projects in there, like a quilted vest with the sun, moon, and stars and an apron that hangs from the shoulders to the floor like a table runner with a hole for the head. Weirdness. There are also some gorgeous patterns, like that bird quilt. The coolest bird quilt ever (I seem to have an affection for bird quilts). It looks like something you’d find in Anthropologie. I’m not quite ready to take on another quilt, but the house pillow is right up my alley, minus those horrible acrylic yarn tassels.
