This weekend was a particularly hectic one. It seems my children's social lives consume the majority of my life. But in between under 5's socialising madness, I did manage to grab myself a bit of a bargain.
In Jersey we have a store called Imagination. It's a toy shop come kitchen/electronics shop, come café/card shop and it has the biggest selection of adult craft materials on the island. I was always popping there for threads, rotary cutter blades, buttons...
But now the craft section is closing - disaster! I am really gutted as I was always nipping there when having a craft shortage and didn't have the patience to order online and wait.
But the silver lining is, they've extended their 50% off sale to no less than 75% off all adult craft materials! Well who was I to pass up such a good opportunity to stock up.
The shelves were pretty depleted but as you can see they still had a good range of threads, so I bought most of them! And some ribbon to wrap my customer orders, some navy bias binding and some plastic pockets. All this for £15.00. I think that's the bargain of the century :-)
I've also been busy with bunting orders, this time a couple of sets of butterfly bunting, similar to this one.
Another busy week lies ahead; I shall be making some Christmas bunting for a customer, a bit like this one but with the word 'Noel'. The perfect decoration for someone who's travelling (as she is) as it will fit nicely in the suitcase :-)
I also want to make some of the quilted journals that I made a few weeks ago. I'm looking forward to sharing them with you soon!
