Pure thrifting to prepare presents

I am on a fabric and quilt-related "roll" when it comes to this month's thrifting. Hospice thrift produced these items for $6.75.  Batting ($1), mystery bag of fabric ($2), Christmas paisley 3 yards of fabric ($2), a bag of lemon/verbena soap ($1.50) and mystery bag of cut fabric squares ($1), the lot at 10% off.

Mystery fabric of pre-cut solid squares solved the binding problem for my brother's retirement quilt (to be revealed when finished), the WIP is on my Instagram feed under tvonzalez. I am going to chain piece the squares together.

The $2.00 mystery bag of fabric revealed this sunflower collection. I am sorely tempted to bump my Halloween quilting project to make a small sunflower creation.

Pattern of the day presumed to be one from the 1940s, undated Simplicity 3553. I had to leave the thrift shop sticker price on it because it lifted off the image.

One of the items on my thrift shop bucket list is a retro dress form. I passed one up a couple of years and have been kicking myself ever since.
