Sill haven't found 'em...

But I did find these eighteen envelopes of hot iron transfers at Value Village last week, mostly unopened, all uncut, and all dirt cheap.  They're new reprints of old patterns.

I'm a sucker  for dancing flatware...

And I almost bought this set at an antique store at the Sisters quilt show back in July. I was at the cash register with my cash in my hand before I thought to look in the envelope. Good thing I did, because that one had the wrong transfers inside. I wouldn't have been happy to discover that once I got home!

As soon as Hubby gets back to work, I want to go through every last box in the sewing room and find those transfers I've been looking for. I can't even tell you what's in that bag, just that I tore them out of old Workbasket magazines and put them away for safekeeping back when I had no intention of ever using them. Odd are, they'll be duplicates of what's in Mom's stash. Or things I've already found online. But it's making me crazy that I can't find them.

I enjoy reading about all the great deals you and your kids find at thrift stores. I never seem to find anything of interest when I go.

Those old transfers are fun. I have a quilt that was made from some blocks I embroidered from one those old transfers.

I have a box of transfers. I have used a few, but not nearly all I have plans for future projects.

Those old transfer are intriguing. What fun! Hope you find the ones you are looking for. Even I have a few of those old transfers and I don't even like to hand embroider! LOL
