I just got back from a 10 day holiday in NSW and am loving all the finds you have all had over recent weeks!
I stopped off at several Op Shops on my way to and from Sydney, and did find a few things to add to my collections, however I was trying to de-clutter, not re-clutter, so I was very select in what I brought home.
there were a few unstitched doilies (for eBaying not for me to embroider)
a few pieces of barkcloth, that I'm sure I'll be able to find a good home for.
and piles of old crochet patterns, and some knitting patterns.  A few of these date back to the 1920s and 1930s and I just adore the illustrations.

I also got a few pieces of jewellery for myself, a nice shawl and a couple of scarves.  Add to that the fun I had with my family over the Easter days and I can say it was a wonderful time.

Ah! So that's why you've been quiet. I was thinking the worst...left a message on your machine re opshopping in Mornington with Dian!

DIAN said...

Hi Lyndel, glad you had a great time. You certainly picked up some great items.

Hope we can catch up soon.
