This Weeks Finds....

It's been a frustrating week this week with illness,a broken sewing machine, bad weather and my computer had a virus to top it all off! I managed a couple of op shopping expeditions but the bill from the sewing machine repair and the computer doctor have cleaned me out so I had to be frugal.

Here's what I found...


Another cross to add to my collection...




I'm not sure exactly what this fabric would have been for? It's definitely very old (I think 1930's).



Beautiful 50's cotton floral...

craft cotton - great for lining bags etc....



embroidery transfers....


a handy Maori translation dictionary from the 60's.
