Stitch Camp 2018 ~ Shopping for Treasures

Shopping is always a big part of my trips :)
Country Sampler has so many wonderful treasures, it's hard to decide what should come home with me!

Lovely fabrics

Home decor

Cross Stitch

Jeanne has it all!

I had fun going through all the treasures in the sales basement
and found these patterns that had to come home.

And a few new designs, too.

I had been contemplating this book for some time. But when Susan pointed out the lovely fabric and threads that it uses, I was smitten! I bought enough fabric and threads for three designs from the book!

Of course I had to do a bit of antiquing as well.

I had to take this picture for David Schump, The Art Tramp :)

It was interesting as it seemed that at this antique mall there were spool cabinets everywhere that I looked!

All different shapes and sizes

While they were all lovely, I am so very happy with the one that I own.

This framed piece caught my eye and made me smile.

I did find one treasure that had to come home with me...

This small cross stitched piece.
The linen is so small that I think that it is 50 or even 60 count!

What amazed me was that a thread was pulled where each line of writing was stitched.
Then it was meticulously re-woven back in!

At a time when supplies were few and far between the silk binding was carefully sewn on with the same red thread. And only in a few small places can you see that red thread in the binding on the front.

I did some research on the quote.
It was published by The Advent Review and Sabbath Herald Seventh-Day Adventist Publishing Association on April 21, 1863 and around the same time by the Campbell County Baptist Association Circular Letters.

I was so excited to receive a few treasured gifts as well.

Thank you Barbara for the sweet antique child's shoe forms!
And thanks to Pam for the sweet Burt's Bees tin and goodies.
I think that it is calling to be repurposed as a sewing tin ;)

I know, my God, that you test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. In the uprightness of my heart I have freely offered all these things, and now I have seen your people, who are present here, offering freely and joyously to you.
~1 Chronicles 29:17
