This small coffee shop in Post Falls even has dandelion jelly! We also explored the local thrift shops in both towns. This was such a colorful mural I had to get a picture of it. I bought this German thimble at Wiggetts the antique mall in Coeur d 'Alene. I have found that good thimbles are cheaper at thrift stores and even antique malls than than at regular sewing shops. This antique thimble cost $8.00 and is sterling silver.
The thimble is sitting on wallpaper from the Cheney cottage.
The paper was backed with muslin on the wall. I can't believe the wallpaper still is vibrant after all these years.I arrived at Bear Paw Quilting before they opened to get a good parking space. You can tell I'm still not use to the cold weather yet. I purchased this block of the month pattern for $2.00 (the umbrella material was included) and made this three dimensional pin wheel block. I mailed this quilt block back to the store to enter the drawing for pin wheel blocks other quilters have made. I hope I win.
