Op shop treasures!

On my travels today, I visited a few op-shops, just looking looking looking ...

I bought some old Handmade Magazines (50c each - bargain!) and a few old books. One is called "And So to Embroider" ... it's c1960 and rather delightful. Here is an illustration from it - showcasing the embroidered pelmet & curtains!

I also got 2 metres of white cotton patchworking fabric (soaking now) for $1.50/metre, in comparison to $6.99/m at Spotlight! Bargain!

LMS did some digging and bought 2 pairs of jeans, 3 tops & a pair of shorts. All suitable, all beautiful, and all fit!

Best go hang out the washing, last day of the cricket carnival tomorrow, and he has to wear a specific shirt. Hooray for automatic washing machines!
