The afghan is wool and looks like it was accidentally felted. All those gorgeous color combinations make me giddy and deeply inspired. (For $3, I have to say)
The little ripple afghan ($2!) is too small for anything that I've figured out yet. I've got it tossed across my shoulders right now like a Tasha Tudor shawl, but it's really too skimpy. But those colors!
All I went to the thrift store for was to get a sheet to use as backing for Ben's quilt, and a tin for Christmas 2012's fruitcake. I've never made a proper fruitcake before, and I'm not going to miss my window of opportunity again, nor am I going to plop the grand thing in Tupperware.
Besides the chambray sheet, I got a stack of vintage tea towels. I'm sure they'll resurface sometime in my etsy shop as hanging hand towels.
Wow, Margo! You were at the right place at the right time!
A few years ago I started a ripple afghan and then stopped; it's about the size of yours. It happens to match the living room colors, so it's on the back of the loveseat.
What a fantastic haul of vintage inspired goodies you have there, the colours in the afghan are so rich, glorious in fact.
those colors make me giddy too!
Score! Delicious colors; good winter therapy!
What a fun thrift store outing.I love all the beautiful colors.. Pretty..
Those little blankets would be perfect for a baby :)
