So, Thursday...

I haven't moved quite as fast as I should.  But here I am.

Had a wonderful lunch and shop with friend, Jill.  We had gyros and went to Hobby Lobby.  She was looking for cotton yarn to match a project but found much more as we all do.

I almost bought some yarn but remembered how much is still stashed and only bought a tassel.  I hope to try an ornament idea with it.  If it works I'll show you.

Here are some of the things from the vintage box. I tried to get the most detail since you know what a hankie looks like.  They are stained and need attention but still beautiful.  The first is monogrammed and the second has newer looking leaves and embroidery.

This is blackwork of daisies and poppies that I can guess were to be pillows.  Really beautiful handwork here.

The Bowls with Borders Blog Hop starts the 13th and my bowls will be shown on the 15th.  Here is a link to the schedule that has all the bloggers days and links.  Mine is ready to quilt and I hope to have it done or close for you.  More tomorrow.
