Boot Fair Bargains

It was nice when I woke up on Sunday morning so I decided to go to the local boot fair again after my success last week. I didn't do as well this week but I did get some interesting things. A DMC Bunnykins cross stitch kit for £2.50, it is of a bath time scene. I enjoy doing cross stitch when I don't have the inspiration to design something myself. I started on this kit on Sunday afternoon and shall pick it up in the evenings when I don't have the energy for anything more complicated.

I spent £1 on three embroidery books, they tell you about the different stitches and include lots of charts for small designs. Might be useful.

I also got a bag full of tapestry wool for 50p, I didn't have any tapestry wool before. I will get some canvas soon and try to make up my own design, I am not sure what to use it for yet, perhaps a cushion.

I visited the regular stall that has vintage linens and sewing items. I bought some buttons from the rummage box. I only spent 60p this week, my favourites were some cute pale blue flower buttons, on the right of the photo.

The only other thing I bought was a tiny Upcott teddy bear for my collection. It was only 10p and I like to give them a good home.
