Fun Things

I realized that I hadn't shared my bobbin box. This was a purchase I made at the Liberty Antique Show that Cathi and I attended a few months ago. It was in a booth on the ground and I want to say the vendor may have been tired of lugging it to shows because she was willing to deal. You can see in the photo below wood bobbins in the box. At first the vendor asked $3 a piece for the bobbins. I felt that was a bit much for a bobbin and declined. I asked about the box. She then said $50 on the box her body language showed me she was still willing to deal. I counter offered for the box with the bobbins included $25.00 and she accepted. It may or may not have been a deal but I like it.

I'm always appreciative to the gifts and prizes I receive in the mail. I owe Stefanie a huge thank you for asking me if she could pick up EQ7 for me at market. It arrived last week along with the book she gifted me called, American Patchwork. A few weeks ago Carol had a giveaway for the Fresh Vintage pattern booklet and I won. I recently quilted for Carol and in with her quilt top was not only the book I won but some FQs just because. Bear Paw Quilts, Sinta and Sherri sent charm packs I won for last months Schnibble.

Thank you to all these wonderful gals! Can you fill in the blank on what I'm thinking? If it weren't for blogging I would have never _________________________.

I always am drawn to old boxes like that and wonder what treasures they may have held previously. :-)

Seems to be that you got a nice deal on the box. It is something I would have been checking out at the show, too.

You would probably have not met all the wonderful people you have through blogging. I think blogging is the best way to meet new friends.

Love that bobbin box - I think you got a great deal on it.

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

. . . met such wonderful people. (Does your husband still think we're stalkers?) :-)

Have you played with EQ7 yet? I love all your pretty gifts. Hope you have a great 4th of July weekend!

Kaaren said...

I would have paid $50! Maybe that's why I'm always broke! *wink* I love it, Mary.

...we'd never have 'met'. Hugs to you my friend.

Shakerwood said...

We both got some great deals that day, didn't we?!

.... I wouldn't have been held accountable to finish so many quilts and try so many new things for which I am truly grateful!

Your bobbin box is great, but I love the quilt it is sitting on. The fabrics in it are my kind of colors, and I love stars. Have a wonderful 4th. Winona

Pat said...

What great things you are showing us here today. I think if it wasn't for the blog, you'd not have met so many nice people and also not have gotten so many nice surprises in the mail!

I like your old box and bobbins. Very vintage and sewing combined :)

QuiltSue said...

I love the box. You've also got some lovely goodies there to play with, stroke, read, etc.

As for filling in the blank, I think your thought was "spent so much time on this dratted computer"?

Sue-Anne said...

I love that box! I think it was a bargain with all those bobbins included! Congratulations on all your lovely gifts. Happy 4th July!!!

Barb said...

I love your bobbin box - especially the inside of the lid - very cool!

Oooooooh... fill in the blank! I love those! I don't know about you, but the first thing that comes to mind for me is...

If it wasn't for blogging, I would never respond at 5:30 to, "what's for dinner?" with, "ummmmmm....."

Oooops! Hope that's not your answer :o) Have a happy day!

Quilt Rat said...

If it were not for blogging....you would never need to pay for Internet
and of course would you have so many fabulous cyber friends and pets? :-)

Totally jealous of that bobbin box It is terrific!

Wendy said...

Good bargaining on the box and bobbins. I have some bobbins but not a gorgeous box...you hit the jack pot.
