The big reveal....
I was quite pleased with the end result, it looks really good next to the matching chest of drawers in our bedroom. Amazing what you can do with a little bit of time and effort.
Still plodding along with the Mickey Mouse quilt, it is now ready for binding. I have edged a couple of pillowcases to match it but I will share them when I show the finished quilt.
We had a stroll along the beach, its actually a beautiful spot that I sometimes think we just take for granted because we live so close to it. I will take the camera the next time we go and share the beauty with you. We also treated ourselves to fish and chips, sat on the promenade with them and watched the world go by. A very pleasant couple of hours.
Of course we had a walk around a car boot sale and got lucky with some bargain buys...
A lot of plants, you can never have enough so we bought a few more to add to the garden.
A scrapbook for 50p, a wonderful addition to the craft room.
4 paper packs and 6 packets of embellishments for £5, another great addition to the craft room. It makes hobbies affordable when you can pick things up at those prices. I will have a little fun later just looking through the packs.
Vegetables half a sack of potatoes £1.50, carrots 75p celery 30p, asparagus £1, onions 50p and cut green beans an enormous bag for £1.50, I have actually popped some in the freezer, spring greens 50p and cauliflower 50p plenty of veg for the week and a lot cheaper than the supermarket.
Another 6 books to add to the nursery bookcase at 20p each. At those prices you can afford to keep topping them up and allowing the children to take some home as well.
Finally a Thomas game that is immaculate, it looks to have never been used for £1, I know 4 little people who will love this.
All in all a good haul, definitely worth going to and a nice stroll as well. Did you get any bargain buys this weekend? Hope you are all having a great long weekend.
See you soon.
