Today’s Bargains

I was up bright and early this morning and ready to head to the Spotlight craft sale.  I was amazed to find there was still a lot of Bucilla silk ribbons available and I bought 26 cards for $13.  I normally buy my ribbon from Maria but this was already dyed and though I have fun experimenting I don’t always get the shades I aim for.

I also purchased 20 hanks of Puppet stranded cotton, which is made by Coats and I find it lovely to use and easy to dye/overdye.  10 bead sets, Setacolour, fabric paints, rubber stamp of a teacup, Mill Hill beads and a bead tray.

  I had to take a sideways shot of the beads as the flash kept obliterating the beads and they lost their colour.  I only have half the beads  shown, as I duplicated the colours.

I thought I did extremely well for a total of $50.20 .  Now I can have no excuse for not doing some flowers by Di van Niekerk and sun printing too.  Well perhaps a few sunny days for the last item.

 DH and I then ate at the Chinese cafe, did a small amount of food shopping and off home for a well earned cuppa.
