Score Again


Here are the beads I scored today at the thrift shop. I think they have a lot of them and put out some each week. They might as well save themselves a lot of sorting and just sell me the whole collection right now. Lol. The shells from the necklaces (there are three of them) should look good with the Australian fabric.
Today there were lots of bag handles for less than a dollar each. I got a few but I don't usually make bags with that type of handle. Maybe I should start.
The fabric is really neat but maybe not suitable for quilting. It may end up being a table cloth for our outdoor picnic table.
If anyone is interested in winning a pincushion Fabric Mom is having a draw over on her blog. Check it out but be warned that I plan to win!

It's just not right that they are holding back the goods from you!

I enjoy those kinds of finds. I can't wait to see the results of the landscape in the previous post.

You have gone and done it again- Joyce what great finds you are getting at the thrift store- How nice for you- I can see that you will have lots of fun with them..
It is always nice when you get to play - especially when you can keep the costs down.
Regards,
Anna

Jackpot! Too fun!!! I'm thinking that your thrift store is using some pretty successful marketing strategies! ;-)
