A Surprise For Me!

 It's like the world is balancing itself today just for me.  
I got my quilt out the door and in the mail in record time.   I can't show it to you though... one of THOSE awesome deals=)     And there was a surprise waiting for me on my counter.

This old box just sat there.  
My husband told me that a girl I know dropped it off for me thinking I could use it.  
Guess what was in it?
Vintage lace!  

It gets better....   
VINTAGE RIC RAC!!   Okay, who is screaming now?  I am, I am.  Wait, it actually gets better.


Two toned and sparkly ric rac!   I almost wrote this post in all capital letters, it is just that exciting!   They don't even make this stuff anymore.   

I was so happy, I started free motion quilting circles.   As you know I love circles, and dots, and ric rac.  Life is good!

Fun stuff.
Your circle quilting looks great. My circles are never that round.

I have always loved rick rack but much of it was 'cleared out' in my sewing room clean up! Actually I sold a bunch of the sparkly rick rack in my etsy shop -- it went pretty quick, so other people love it too!

I like the one that is slightly pointy and also sparkly. What a good friend to give you those!

How do you do circles that look like circles when machine quilting? Mine look like squares....lol.

Love the vintage laces and rick-racks! I have a bunch like these from my grandmother's stash, including a couple of the metallic ones. The price tags are still on some of the packages of rick-rack - 15 cents and 25 cents - but she bought them at half price (original prices are crossed out) for 8 cents and 13 cents!

Love the ricracs! It' s those kinds of things that feed our creative souls. Excellent circles....I can't wait to try my new sewing machine out on those!
