This Weeks Finds...


 
I'm trying to be zen about this Xmas thing but it never happens! What with markets, Xmas shopping, work do's and other get togethers I end up stressed, stressed stressed. This year is no exception....
 
My traditional way to de-stress is to op shop but at the moment my sewing room is so full that I feel ill when I see the piles of treasure piling up.
 
Do I have a problem? Hell, yes!
 
Anyway, adding to my stress this week I found....
 
 
 



 
 

 
 
 

 
 

 

Lots of amazing tapestries...
 

 
 

 
some hand stitched  ethnic placemats (I made some Xmas decos from these - will try to remember to share a pic)...

  1. Love those tapestries - see them in charity shops here in Scotland but they tend to be quite expensive!

    1. I was lucky enough to walk in just as they were putting them out! The big ones were $10 each but they are large! The other two were $4 each - so a good score!
