  • Charity shop goodies!

    I found a wonderful pair of curtains in Oxfam in the town where my mum lives - as soon as I spotted them I ran over and grabbed them! Aren't they gorgeous?



    I'd like to hang these but they don't really match anything in the house - I think they are destined to become chickens instead!

    I also got a fabulous book that tells you in great detail all the different embroidery stitches that you could possibly ever need - can you tell that I might be picking up a new craft soon!




    The pictures are wonderful and I really want that apple pillow. I'll stick to learning how to sew straight though I think first!

    I also got a couple of old sewing magazines that feature clothes that I would actually wear (I know that doesn't really suprise any of you!) and an applique quilting book which will come in handy for making Thomas's quilt - if I get round to it this year!

    So bargains all round!

        I love that material.
        I managed to pick up a 16" string of mother of pearl hearts for only 50p and an 8 strand bracelet of 4mm black faceted beads for £1 the other day.

            Not mad but thrifty, resourceful, crafty and creative - well that's what I like to think anyway

                My town is FULL of charity shops. I had a good look round last week. And it was all stinky old tat ! Nothing nice at all!! Fern did find a hungry hippo game though so she was happy. (but i had to bring it home and use my anti bac wipes on it before i would let her touch it). I have issues. ha ha
