Retreat Goodies

I am just thrilled to show you what came home with me. It seems like Christmas!

First are the storage baskets which I picked as a door prize. (PS -Thanks Bert)


Then the FQs I bought at a shop in Western Illinois(can't remember the name), along with a cute pumpkin frayed quilt pattern and a FQ for co-worker Vicki who is collecting this line, from Lori's Pins & Needles on the way home.


Here is the chinese take-out box filled with fabrics and a wooden holder for my thread, thimble, and pins that I received in the gift exchange. (PS - Thanks Bonnie) An Apple Basket kit and thread from the door prize table also and some cute magnets that I couldn't resist buying for $.94 each.




The City Limits fabrics --YUMMY!


And last but certainly not least is this cute flowerpot pin cushion from my friend Rosemary.

Great gifts and purchases! Love the brown fabric with the blue and green paisleys. Do you know who the manufacturer and designer are of this piece? I have to get some.

Hi Ruthie, I just looked at your blog and you do beautiful work....

Love all your Goodies...
I need about 10-20 of those boxes labled "JUNK". For all that stuff that doesn't fit in a specific catagory.

Thanks for Sharing.

It does 'look' like Christmas. The Chinese take out box is a cute idea and the pincushion is adorable. Looks like you have a few new projects.
