It must be my lucky day!! Look what I got for free from my local quilt store owner, Linda:
Some of the items reminded me of my childhood… remember Zody’s??
Just when it couldn’t possibly get better… she also mentions that they were going to throw away a huge bag of wool!! OMG… I pounced before she could even finish her sentence!! Here it is after I brought it home and felted it:
It appears that the person who brought it to the quilt store to give away had purchased most of these wool pieces from Ireland, most likely from a factory. That bottom piece alone is about 6 yards!! Hmmm… now i need to actually use them in a project.
Some days are just luckier than most!!
