Jackpot!


I went to the thrift shop today to check out the craft section (because I like to), and found a large bag of beading threads! There was 9 small spools of nymo of different colors, 3 large nymo spools of different colors, one large and one small spool silamide, some round leather, and some waxed linen. There was also a ton of jewelry wire of different colors. Much of it was brand new and still had the price tag on it. I think I probably have enough to last me a lifetime (maybe)! Now for the really good part -- I spent $6 and it was probably worth about $59.00 at least!! I love thrift shops. (-:

I am on stitchmap with you.
I love your butterfly on the front of your blog. Do you have a pattern for that. I really enjoy doing thread crochet motifs for CQ blocks
