Shopping and Eating

I had a great day today op-shopping (Salvos, Quakers and Red Cross). I found these Actil sheets in their original box.
I found the little brochure in another pile of sheets. I might make it into a new blog header.
Pyrex, more knitting needles, ricrac and hooks and eyes Don't you love Madame Weigel's?

8 balls of 4 ply cotton (hope it's good and not a dud because I really like cotton) Making these

while eating thisWarm Apple Crumble (from mum's Pryex) with custard. Mmm

Actil sheets are my favourite, it's like having hotel sheets at home!

Great cotton. That would be a good thing to go thrifting for. I think I'm addicted to cotton string bags. Echo the sentiments about your fab opshops. I must find some in walking distance!
