Quilts for Craft Hope #5

My quilts are on their way via the USPS to their destination for Craft Hope's most recent project, Margaret's Hope Chest.  I can’t wait to hear the results - I think at last count they were getting close to their goal of 400 donated quilts.  It is amazing to think of all the crafters out there who are participating in all of these wonderful projects.  It is amazing to be a tiny part of such a big momentum of love and caring.
  Go take a look at all of the quilt's pouring in, and I guarantee you will be nothing short of amazed, too.
I did some thrifting recently and came home with a few goodies.  I love old knitting and sewing books, and I was excited to stumble across this vintage booklet for baby knits.  I guess it was marked cheap because it was missing the cover - nonetheless, I am happy to give it a new home!  Look at how cute these sweaters are!
And this one, too!
A rather retro-looking nursery rhyme book found it’s way into my cart also.

The coastal New England states are hunkering down tonight and tomorrow for the remnants of tropical storm Ida.  Definitely a good time to stay inside and curl up with my new-to-me books – let’s hope the four children who also reside at Morning Glory Lane feel the same!
Warm weekend wishes,
