My Goodwill Find

I really wanted to title this post Tessa, You Ungrateful Snot but then I got to thinking and decided that maybe it wasn't Tessa's fault that this cute little wallhanging was at the Goodwill Store. I really would like to know how it ended up there and why. But this will problaby be one of the mysteries that I will never solve. I know I am happy I found it and it was still there for me to buy.
I saw it there on Tuesday when I went searching for a good deal on shirts--but that's another rant for another day. I left it there and then spent the night hoping it would still be there in the morning so I could rescue it. So on my way to my Wednesday sewing date, I went back and bought it.
I don't know why Tessa doesn't still have this. I only hope her Grandmother doesn't see this post. How would you react if this happened to you? I know my feelings would be crushed.
So if you are Tessa or her Grandmother and would like to have this back, please contact me and I will make sure it is returned to you. Until then, it has a home on my guestroom wall. I think it's adorable.

Thats what is wrong with our society right now. If it doesn't fit the docor or not designer people don't want it. I am really happy your rescued it. What a great find.

HOw lucky for you and for the Sunbonnet Sues that you found this. I can't imagine why you didn't snatch it up the first time you saw it. :-) It is just darling - I've always been partial to SBS.

Wow what a great little quilt. Who knows how or why it was where you found it, but it is a good thing you did.

P.S. TAG!! your it! I have posted 8 random things about me on my blog and have tagged you to play along next if you would like. :)

My nightmare is this post. I dread that I will work long and hard on something for someone and then find it in a thrift store. You are so nice for rescuing it and trying to return it!
