Finds and Rescues

I've been really busy over the last week or so (and poorly) so I have not been able to blog. These are the recent finds and rescues:

This fabric is so naff its kinda fab lol I brought it for £2 and there is at least 5-10 mtrs of it... bargain!



I really want to learn how to crochet - I even brought the essentials to get me started. Alas I don't have the brain power at the mo (thanks to smelly two waking me up at 5am every morning).

They were 50p each and purchased from a lovely lady. I'm not sure how she would feel about me wrecking these in some crafting endeavour. I wish I had brought the whole lot now...





At the car boot there was a lovely old Italian man who sold odds and sods. Mostly it was a load of tat but I found this gem hidden amongst the ladies purses. Ok so it prolly... ok almost certainly wont have any real age to it I just loved the texture and the feel of it., I could run my fingers over it all day.






I also saved some dolls/teddies from being thrown away. They were 20p each and in desperate need of TLC. I'm not sure the Chained Monkey would be suited to today's PC society but who cares I love him.


Finally.... I grabbed these badges at 20p each. My fav is the junk food one although the Captain Britain badge is quite funky.


Quite a mixed bag this time. :)

I have also today sent my B-Movie Swap package to Spoilt Pig, this is my first ever craft swap; hosted by the fab meridianariel and I'm so nervous but excited about it. I really, really, really hope Spoilt Pig likes it. Check out this flickr group to see all those that took part.

First of all, that fabric is a GREAT bargain! That whole lot for 2 Pounds? Take it and run, I say. What a steal.

My partner for the B-movie swap was Apryl herself. I hope she likes what I've sent her, although, I am hugely doubting myself and the things I've sent now... Yikes.

I'm sure she will love what you have made, I think after a few more swaps I wont be so nervous... I hope
