This Weeks Finds...

Not a bad haul this week! I particularly like this 4m of metal braid. God only knows what I'd ever use it for?! I have an eclesiastical wall hanging that has this braid along the bottom (if i could just find it I'd show you).

more knitting needles! The container is getting rather full...

love this unopened packet of iron on interlining...

I think I may have this pattern book in a pile somewhere - but one is never enough

a half finished tapestry and a gorgeous silk hankie.

Pop over to Her Library Adventures and Apron Thrift Girl for more thrifty goodness!


  1. The colour and design on the interlining packet is just brilliant, totally reminds me of why I love vintage so much - lovely find :-)

  3. A successful week of thrifting for you.
    Would love to see the container of knitting needles. I think I should start collecting them myself. x

  4. To the 8 inch hoop I tied a string of the jingle bells across before wrapping the frame with long strips of flannel, about two inches wide and as long as possible. I had two 36 inch strips and had about 6 inches to spare. The end of the wrapping can be secured with a bit of hot glue. digitizing service for embroidery
