Some thrifted goodies…

First some fabric. I can’t walk by a fabricy bargain! There is loads of this first one, more than enough for a twirly dress and honestly, it’s much nicer in real life – it looks quite 40’s :)


This next fabric is actually a pair of cotton curtains, I love the slightly offset printing of the yellow.


I have a special soft-spot for Sanderson type fabrics. This is only a little piece but it’s more than enough for a bag.


I love old craft books, I’ve got lots of them but there’s always room on my overcrowded shelves for one more!


Look at the illustrations!


I picked up this little box of thread for £1 at my favourite Sally Army. They are only little spools but the lovely bright colours will be great for accents.


Any idea what this is? It cost £1 and I thought it might be a little loom.


It sort-of is, but (have you guessed yet?)…


It’s for darning! I’ll never use it, but I love interesting old sewing paraphernalia.


So the end of my recent thrifty travels, but I’m off to a jumble sale tomorrow…
