Antique Stores and New Patterns!

New patterns and tablecloth
Last weekend Brian and I decided to go to some some pawn shops and antique stores for fun and to also look for an amp for his guitar.  We went to a few good pawn stores and did not find any good amps for a decent price, but at the antique stores I found a few good things.

This awesome although to small tablecloth, I still love it anyway.  Vogart embroidery patterns for a buck a piece I did not have these yet and also Aunt Ellen's embroidery patterns.  From what I have been able to research they are affiliated with WorkBasket.  I also found an apron pattern from the 60's as a replacement for one that got destroyed in our basement flood a couple of years ago.  I will be posting an apron this week that I made with this pattern

Hat I should have bought!I kick myself for not buying this hat!  It has peacock feathers on the top and a wing on the side.  I fell in love with it but decided to pass now I kick myself and need to go back.  Maybe next time we are in town.

In the Aunt Ellen's patterns are these cute Patchwork Cat DOW patterns I thought you all would get a kick out of.  I can just picture them black with hot pink flowers.  Now sure why I want to embroider them this way but I do.  I am missing Tuesday if anyone has it please share.   Tuesday's pattern can be found here and here. Enjoy!

Thank you so much for posting the DOTW cats! It wasn't the set that I was looking for, but it's so cute, I've downloaded it instead, and will no longer care if I don't find the other set. Hope you got that hat!
