Thrifting Treats...

I made a quick stop at a local thrift store to look for some crafting supplies for one of my works in progress (remember that fabric gingerbread house?). Besides finding exactly what I needed for that project, I found these treats...
Cottons to add to my scrappy stash of fabrics along with this cute Strawberry Shortcake printed flannel (destined to become a integral part of a child's quilt idea I have).
I always look thru the clothes for items to repurpose and lucked out by finding some wool sweaters to felt. Yay! Must admit I was also coveting the pretty metal buttons on the patterned sweater and the separating zipper with the fancy pull tab on the cardigan. I love bonuses like that!
Final happy find for me was this grab bag of sewing treats - some vintage ric rac, embroidered trim and ribbon in abundance!
