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.

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.
