Saturday was our local community lawn sale. However, I was working at the Brickworks Farmers market ( I had a very good day) so could not participate, though Heaven knows I have enough to sell!
Although the sale was winding up as I returned home I managed to pick up these two quilts. Both fairly modern, the one on the left a work for Project Linus.
The other, a bit worn, but with the cutest applique pattern of a cut out doll and her paper clothes, This was my go to hobby as a child, my mum -see her pic here as my avi - would draw the doll on cardboard and I would design tons of outfits that I kept in old cigar boxes. The start of my textile addiction.

A nice markets customer bought me a 1950s Jacqmar scarf to add to my collection, just the sort of design I like.
