I'm not generally an Op Shop person. I admire the things that others find, in fact I am often amazed at the things others have found and wonder, "how" and think "I should definitely do that". There's something about the smell of them though. I know that sounds awful, but the one closest to us smells more than a little musty and skanky and it's just not my thing.
I make frequent deliveries to the Op Shop, but aside from buttons generally don't even look. Today, however, for some reason, I did.
I'm also not generally a 70's fabric girl. Again it's not because I dislike them, just don't generally find myself drawn to them, or imagining what I could do with them. Another first though, today I was. I came out with 5 pillowcases, all of which remind me of my youff. I see in them a summer picnic quilt, a la Amanda Soule. Not sure there's enough yardage in these babies to make it up though, so I yet may have to search for more riches!
