After the doctor's on Monday I rewarded myself with a trip to the thrift store. I knew I wanted to pick up a couple golf clubs so I can test out my golf club cover pattern. The golf clubs were only $1 so I grabbed a wood and a putter. Good thing they were marked because I know almost nothing about golf. At this thrift store if you want to use a credit/debit card you need to purchase a minimum of $10. I did have some cash in my wallet but of course I wanted to wander around and see what else they had since I hadn't been there in awhile.
I like to browse the pillow case section. They call it pillowcase but what they put there are the covers you use to make throw pillows. I found the one realistic duck pillow case and then the 6 country duck covers in the lower left. The country duck covers are all double so there is 2 ducks on each. That gives me 12 ducks to make a quilt with.
I also picked up some fabric and a cute wooden reindeer. I found a knit stocking (commercially made because I can see where they cut off the tag inside) that I liked. I might use this as my stocking for the Stocking give away next month.
See those two scary pillows in the back? I think they are the kind that come with those scary looking couches from back in my childhood. They look like they are in pretty good shape. I squeezed them and they felt new inside. What I plan on doing is removing the covers and make new fun, funky and bright covers for them. I have been wanting throw pillows for the couch but I always forget to look at pillow forms when I am out.
I bought all this for just over $15 I believe. Not too bad.
