Short evening

I had to go and get a haircut last night so by the time I got home I didn't have much time to do anything. I did manage to pair up some strips for making the 4-patch blocks this morning. I will trim the strips to the correct width once I sew them together. I am dealing with a variety of widths so it is just easier to trim them after they are sewn.

I did get a group of vintage pins, patches, and a charm off of ebay for a heck of a great price. I was the only person that bid on them.
I especially wanted the AC/DC pins and the bell charm to add to my AC/DC t-shirt embroidered wall hanging I made a couple years ago.

The rest of the pins I will add to my piece from 2015. I just need to find a place in the house to hang this piece.

In May when we were helping my brother to downsize, we found some R.E.M. pins and a couple patches. I added them to the piece shown in my header. It fun to keep adding embellishments to these pieces.

I would imagine it is rare to find those pins and patches. I don't even know most of those bands, I'm from a different generation. My kids would know them.

Love the wall hangings! We used to have a great flea market here where you could find a lot of great pieces. Not the knockoff stuff..original. All those good places are gone from here now. It's just a lot of junk and even when you dig you don't find anything. On the other hand, you can find just about anything on ebay.
