yard sale gold

i hit the yard sale crafter mother load today. two boxes (at least 100) of vintage patterns, notions, spools of wooden thread, ric rac etc. i spent more than usual and had to bum a 10 off my mom, but it was totally worth it. there are a few real gems in there. i talked with the woman for a while and there are more than a few that came from her mother ie turn of the century patterns! so cool.

but, there are way more than i need or would ever make. so, i want to give a large portion of them away! ive sorted through most of what i want and i have way more than a shoebox size box full of goodies that i know i wouldnt get around to making, including several cute girls size 10-12. most of them are already cut out and there are some random pieces floating around. they have been cut to size 12-14, which fits me fine at a size 8-10.

comment if you want it and ill pick someone out of a hat next friday.
