Thrift Store Adventures
I showed these cross stitch projects to you earlier. I got them for great prices at the thrift store and they are now hanging in my guest room.
The other day I went to the same thrift store and picked up a baby quilt. It was a nine patch quilt in soft reds with a white background alternated with a solid white block. It was slightly faded and had some small stains on the back, but that made it more precious. It was well made and without a thorough examination, I didn't know if it was factory or home made. It was a super price too, and I thought that I could find a use for it even though I don't have a baby to gift it to.
I was walking around the store carrying it around (I don't get a cart unless I need it for something I really want to buy. It is my system of avoiding impulse purchases). A lady asked about it and I told her she could have it. She doesn't have a baby either but she said she would put it on her bed.
At least now I've made sure it got a good home.
