I usually keep an ongoing box of items that I no longer need/want and when the box gets full, I take it to them. They resell everything in their store. They take absolutely everything - clothes, furniture, dishes, decorative items - anything you don't want - they will resell. I've heard of some people finding some real treasures in this store - fabric, crocks, etc., but normally when I drop things off, I do not wander around the store - because there is nothing that I need! But, the last time I was there, I decided to check out the clothing section and see if I could find any wool treasures that I could re-purpose. Sure glad that I did because I found several jackets and a couple of skirts. I don't have them all torn apart yet, but here are the few that I have worked on...
Do you treasure hunt for wool? I can't wait to start putting some of this to good use!
I have to share some kitty pictures (of course!). Here is Ozzie - minding his own business (but not so much minding his manners!).
And just so you don't think that all I do is watch the cats all day...I have been working too -since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I had to take some pictures of hearts...
I put a bunch of new items on the website this morning, so be sure to take a look there.
One of my customers, Teresa from Australia, made her matching 6" block and sent me a picture to prove it!
Back to work! Hope you have a great day!
