Today was the Opawa School garage sale. So.much.photographic.goodness!! (So sorry for the lack of photos!)

At opening I headed straight for the manchester section- snaffled up some embroidered linens, a tablecloth and a to die for sheet- it flashed at me as I rummaged through  box of sheets, and I hurried to pick it up, shooting glances over my shoulder to make sure no one else was eyeing it up! And then, the real paydirt- 92 17cm square squares of Laura Ashley patchwork fabrics- 2 of each. I’ve already sorted them into coordinating (mostly) pairs to make a quilt from. A good in between studying project to chip away at. (Becuase it’s study time again my friends….for the last time!)

Also scored was a couple of beautiful “Made in New Zealand” 100% wool, wool mark jerseys- to use the wool from or cut down or felt (oh the possibilities!) some clothes to use for fabric, and a linen/cotton tank to use the fiber out of.

In the kitchenwares department I got some great loaf tins- the kind that slide in and out to change size, a whole heap of enamel bowls and plates in assorted sizes, jars for the great pantry reorganisation that is coming, and a cooling rack- perfect timing for the batch of cupcakes I whipped up when I got home. What a hit. Their only job now is to survive the night whith two predators- the ants, and Michael!
