I tend to visit my local charity shops about twice a week.
Most weeks I find a gem or two but Oxfam was a tresure trove this morning.
Some pieces of old rolled-up fabric revealed a beautiful rainbow of tapestry threads, kept and sorted by someone who loved their crafts.
A handmade blanket made from a piece of soft green wool, bound with ribbon and finished with a gorgeous embroidered cherub.
Recently, I have been working on some cross stitch in the evenings, samplers mostly so finding this Jo Verso kit, brand new , in a charity shop was a real find. I may not have chosen it if I could have afforded to buy it new but I'm sure I'll enjoy picking it up in the evenings over the next few months.
Verity sat her UKCAT exam in Newcastle yesterday, this took 2 hours so I filled in the time with some browsing in John Lewis.What a great shop this is.
Rowan and Debbie Bliss wool and books to read ond touch.
Amy Butler's fabrics to dream over and also her range of fluffy towels to contemplate.
A brill kitchen/china department and a decision made about the roller blind for my revamped kitchen.
Fenwicks is also a great store and I ordered some stacking guest beds which were a good price in their Home Event.
Met up again with Verity, who did really well, lunch in the American diner and then home.
