Short but sweet and lots to snoop - WOYWW



Just a quick blog today - a show and tell. Lots of crafty bargains for you to snoop at!!!!
I received a fab bag of wool from Kemps clearance sale yesterday so I popped it on my table for you to see. Mostly wool to knit cardis, shrugs etc for the tinies in the family. I also bought bargain packs of gorgeous little purl beads and some circular needles. On the window sill you can see a "knit a teddy pack" complete with wool, thread, needles and pattern for £1.99!!!
The rest of the goodies came from our local car boot sale. I am usually hopeless at spotting a bargain but have done well for fab crafty stuff recently.
So - check out ....
A large natural wood picture frame ( for one of my dumfy bird pics)
Two beautiful 54" wedding veils with embroidered/pearl trim - new with tags!!!
Lots and lots of superb canvas, linen and binca for our pictures.
Pretty embroidered hankies and a really lovely hand embroidered butterfly picture.
Beady bracelets which I will break up for beads etc.
Oh and at the front a little dumfling brooch, which I made on fun day Monday, for the blog shop.

If you want to join in with the blog snoop then pop over to Julia's blog and follow Mr Linky.

And last but not least - follow this link or scroll down to my earlier post to see what my nephew and niece have been up to - they are just a few pounds away from raising £1000 for Cancer Research -bless them!

Firstly ..... what a lot of comments you've got on this post. I have just done a lovely catch up read. I thought you 'dumfed' on your machine I didn't realise you did it by hand - even more impressed! I have a wooden holder and a piece of sponge but am tempted by one with a springy thing!
I love your knitting - so quick. and isn't that Crofter wool fab?!
Well done on al your bargains, do wish we had Car boot sales here *sighs* tho B is probably relieved!!
