Freebie and Bargain of the Week
It's been a good week!
We need a lot more stones to finish the former lawn area, when we were out and about today we decided to stop at Dobbies just to see what was what. We almost bought some plants from the plant hospital but then decided to see what they had in terms of stones (we had taken a sample of stones with us to check for colour matching). We weren't going to bother until we saw some open bags at the stone hospital area, £3 per bag so we bought four, they were all virtually full so it was worth it for £12 in total. We still need some more, but not enough to buy another bulk bag.
Second bargain of the week is a piece of fabric from a charity shop in Preston, not one I'd been to before. 49p for a decent sized piece, it has already been washed, dried and has been cut up for a project that hopefully I'll have time and inclination to do tomorrow.
Freebie of the week is also fabric, a friend of a friend was having a sort out and offered my friend whatever she liked, she kindly thought of me and now I my stash is replenished!
It should keep me quiet for a while.
