We are real bargain hunters in this house (well, I am; the kids like the bargains but not the hunting so much...)
Today I dropped into the hospice shop. My excuse was that having forgotten to change out of my gardening skirt (which was grubby, and has a hole in it), it was easier to look for a new one than drive all the way home in the Christmas traffic. I found 2 skirts, 2 t-shirts, a book of poetry by Fiona Farrell (never heard of her, but it looks interesting) a book of Anchor iron-on embroidery patterns, a box of old Shakespeare books ($1) and this (50c, below), all for $11.
I remember my dear sister used to be into quilling, the girls are keen to try it. A holiday project - should keep them busy until Christmas!
