Productive weekend

Well!! This weekend seems to have been very productive for both my OH and me.
Our menagerie has been growing and during the week my very clever OH knocked up this poultry arc for our new bantam cockerel, Bertie. At the moment I think he would rather have the run of the garden, but his bodyguard has other ideas!!

In order to accommodate another pair, cock and hen, of chickens, my (slightly deranged OH) has built yet another mammoth coop, finishing it off for the new arrivals today, who are rather unsportingly hiding underneath it.

As far as my w/e was concerned I had a brilliant morning today at the local car boot and managed to pic up these lovely goodies for pennies, well almost.

Firstly I got 2 of these Ikea frames for £2.0 (normally £7.0) each and they’re 3-D so will be perfect for the next exhibition.

Then I found this great kit for £1.0, unused, must be a bargain for the applicators alone.

This lovely bundle of crushed velvets was 0.50p and I’m not sure but this looks like a bit of Santa’s beard, also in the stash bag.

And lastly this great book, full of wonderful easy to follow stitch sketches, 40p.

So I was a happy bunny with bargains, all for under £6.0

On the creative front, we had what we call a ‘dos day’ on Saturday , which means we do our own thing and I managed to get the third sample for the quilt nearly finished and my July PC for CG finished. I’ll blog both next week when I’ve written up the process.

Fabulous goodies. I have Mary Gostelow's embroidery book, mines years old but it still has some great ideas in it.
