What a bargain

I was having a little browse in my local charity shop as you do when I came accross a little bag of fabric for 95p. Included were these little beauties...

Two big pieces and some smaller scraps. Its really cute and is a linen type fabric rather than a soft cotton. What can I make with these I wonder? Also included were

What a find! I'm feeling very pleased with my bargain fabric. Just need to find that mojo and start making things again!

Right I'm off to watch Brothers and Sisters. Its going to be a tear jearker this week. I'm such a sucker for sentimental American drama shows and I LOVE Rob Lowe. Reminds me of my youth watching him. Was it just me or was anyone else completely obsessed with this film in the 1980's

I loved it and watched it over and over again. Please tell me I was not the only one!


  1. WOW! What a fab find ~ lucky you! I love a good rummage in charity shops!

  3. Wow, how good is that fabric. Hope you get your mojo back soon. I'm off tomorrow scouring our CS again haven't been locally for a while and I'm inspired again by your haul. Sorry a bit old for that film, though I did see it. I'm sure that you will have plenty of followers out there though!

  5. Love the fabric - I also found a lovely pink floral vintage table cloth in a charity shop which I think I will turn into something nice for summer when I figure out what. love browsing charity shops you never know what you will find.

  6. What a fab find from your local CS - I also love St Elmo's Fire, along with The Breakfast Club... oh, and Teenwolf. Good times :o)

  7. I loved that film too. I wish I still had a copy of it. My favourite was Andrew McCarthy, swoon :)
