The 7.5 yards out is from finishing an old UFO, blogged about here.
The $1.75 spent is from another thrift store buy. I'd made up my mind not to go this week (it's COLD outside!!) but TMOTH called from karate, and The Karate Kid had forgotten his gear bag. Since I took it over, I stopped and bought the bag of buttons I didn't buy last week ($1.50) plus a bag with a couple of bracelets I can scavenge some beads from (a quarter).
These are the unopened bags:
For some reason, there were also a dozen shark teeth in the button bag!
These are the buttons. Mostly modern buttons, mostly boring (but useful), but there are a few nice vintage buttons in the mix and a couple of really pretty modern ones.
Bead bracelets. Also, a baggie with some seed beads and sequins, likely from a beaded sweater.
