so according to my new book the crafter's companion, that i enlightened you about earlier in the week, i need to keep a nice balance between the waffling and the pics...this is tricky as i do like to ramble on a bit. however, i will try better today, now i do believe that it has been nearly five days since i showed you any thrifting delights, that's right five days before i broke my promise to stop going on (by the way, i have just discovered that the word 'thrifting' actually doesn't exist, along with my 'beavering' word, i cannot understand why...) see already the waffling has set in.
we have spent a very happy week with family staying and i have very cleverly worked every trip around an excursion past a charity or antique place (how could i resist this)...pretty sneaky eh! and so gradually over the past few days i have built up quite a nice stock of bits to keep me going. to be honest i have managed to unearth so much i can't remember the quantities anymore. so instead of a list, i present 'click and tell'...
interesting old patchwork pieces for bags (that really reminded me of my japanese craft books)
one green kitchen stool for studio (like i can fit anymore in there!)
lots of bedlinen
and of course a small heap of slips
in between all the sight-seeing and feeding of people (thanks to all the helpful hints and tips, i am now the proud owner of a crock pot!!) i have managed to carry on my small production line in the studio, plus coming up with a few new ideas such as this little tote, modelled by the 'ever so lovely' Mabel. which i made from a left over piece of tablecloth after i had finished the cushions...
