Bargains!!

24th January 2015

Went to Lytham today to see if I could find any linens at the Antiques Fair.....

....the ones I saw were too expensive but I did find some lovely Mother of Pearl buttons and a bradawl for just £6.50!


On the way home I popped into my local Age Concern charity shop....


.....three pieces of old hand stitched cotton, think they were nightdress cases....


.....and this lovely table cloth for only £5.

Not sure what I am going to do with it yet but hate to think it might be just scrapped!

Arrived home to find...


....some lovely ideas in it.

Went up to my loft space and started a mixed media card....

...before stitching.....


...after machine stitching....


.....will do hand stitching, beads and buttons tomorrow!
