Hi folks! happy wednesday! I hope you're having an enjoyable week so far. I hit my first car-boot of the season last week and picked up these gems. Pyrex divider dish, vintage fabric, embroidered tablecloth, thermos - minus the cap :( a dreamy butter dish to add to my prized Taunton Vale collection!! and what I thought to be a Pyrosil casserole dish but actually when I cleaned it I noticed it was Corning Ware, the U.S. version, yayy my first :) 

I also got round to finishing off my quilt top and basting it. I'm getting much quicker at sandwhich'ing my quilts these days, though it does still take quite some effort; moving rugs and furniture to clear some space ;) 
    I really love the traditional, vintage feel of this quilt I had an idea when making this quilt I would love to hang it on one of those display ladders I've been spying lately, perfect crafty addition to my living room.  Jessie, xo

  4. That's a great looking quilt! And I sympathize with all the furniture moving and room arranging necessary to baste a quilt. But the rewards are worth it.

    Great haul at the car-boot!

  7. Hehe, I think my parents had a blue and white dish and a thermos I've that when I was a little girl in the 80s. They were probably wedding presents from their wedding in the early 70s. I reckon mum probably for rid of them in the 90s, and now they are collectibles!
