Today I find myself unmotivated to do anything. I think it's the weather bringing me down. Hot tea may be in order.

Here are the tablecloths and fabric that I bought the other day.

This blue and green is the worse of the two in terms of condition. It has a hole that at one time was patched, but now the patch has a hole. How sad. I'll give it a good wash and soak followed by ironing and see how it looks then.

I like this yellow and red with the bows. It seems to be in pretty good shape.

Here's the fabric. I picked up two yards for $3. I really don't think they knew what they had. Most older fabric is considerably higher. As I said before, my granny had a dress and matching apron out of this fabric. She's been gone for 22 years and I was probably 10 or 11 when she had this. Let's just say it's old and leave it at that.

...You got one heck of a bargain! :o) And yes, I'm with you, I like the yellow flowers with the ribbons best. And I love the pattern and colors on the fabric. Great stuff! Don't you just love a bargain? lol... ;o)

I do love a bargain. I would much rather shop thrift stores or antique stores than store that sell new stuff. The quality just doesn't compare.

A rare find indeed! All are nice, but I'm a blue nut so I hope you can save the blue tablecloth, maybe have enough to do something with, maybe a apron? I love thrifting and salvaging goods to alter into something new again, such fun! We all get unmotivated at times, tea always helps, as does crafting! Hope you find your mogo soon! lol Hugs!!

Thank you Sue. Tea certainly helped and so did crafting. I think I'm back in action.
