Today I was shopping at Goodwill and found this. I opened the box and inside was a Moshimer rug hook, wool, a pattern drawn on burlap with instructions. I bought it for $2.00!!
Today it is snowing in Ohio. The snow isn't sticking to the ground but, it's cold and dreary outside. I knew that weather was going to turn cold so I cut a bouquet of Magnolia before the flowers wilted.

  4. What a steal with the hooking box! Kinda kewl design too! Same thing happens here in Jersey with the Magnolias... start to bloom, get a frost and brown goes the blooms... Good thinking to save some! :-)

  8. What a great find! My most recent treasure was a piece of wool yardage - had a pendleton tag stapled on and I paid $1 for 1-3/8 yards. Yay for thrift stores!

  9. Julie, your magnolia is so beautiful. Here in KS, we were big into spring and then Mother Nature decided to play games and take us back to winter. It's been cold, rainy and gray. Today we should finally get some of the spring weather back but only for today.

    I love your hooking find. Two dollars made you a great purchase here.
