Okay, so Open Day is over but now is the time to show you what I came home with!! Needless to say I went a little crazy and bought a bit but I also managed to find some bargains. What do you think of this gorgeous basket which I can use to take to spinning with all my bits and pieces in it?
It was on the Southside Spinners table and I immediately picked it up. At $14 it was a bargain plus these two balls of 2ply yarn for a combined total of $3.20.
From Desley’s table I picked up these four cups and saucers with little sheep motifs on them. $12 for the lot!
Aren’t they so cute?
Plus this 1,000 piece sheep puzzle for $20.
Desley makes these beautiful sewn mug bags. At $6.50 they’re ideal as a gift for someone who goes to spinning. We all take our own mugs.
I picked up these books from the Gold Coast Spinners table. Around $20 for all of them.
Plus this fibre.
This is carded alpaca…all ready to spin!
This gorgeous merino from our members’ table.
Plus this lovely little scarf.
These gorgeous soaps, lotion bar, lip balms and a ‘spinning wheel’ pendant from VivianneK Handmade Soaps.
Vivianne also very kindly gave me this beautiful wooden box with my name engraved on it. It is simply stunning and I am using it to store my ‘sheepy’ jewellery.
And of course there are my three cute little sheep mugs from Earth & Stone Creations.
They are now proudly sitting on a shelf with my sheep cups and saucers. This rather handy notions case from Chantelle’s Fiberific table.
This Natural Plant Dyes book written by Vivianne’s mother (who also had a small table). She kindly autographed it for me.
These two shawl pins from Shorn Fibers.
Some soaps from one of our members’ tables.
Plus these old copies of Spin-Off magazine from our second hand baa-gains table. All for the grand price of 20c each!
I think I managed to pick up quite a few lovely goodies.
I am now in the process of sorting out some projects to take on holidays with me. Yes, my Noosaville trip has snuck up on me quite quickly. I’ve been winding wool and sorting patterns as I’ll be away for three weeks so I’ll need plenty to keep me busy. Can’t wait to drop into social knitting at Sheep Thrills in Noosaville. I discovered this little yarn shop in July last year and I can’t wait to get back there!
To finish off I’m going to show you more of these little sheep mugs that I am totally besotted with 🙂
Until next time…
