Charity shop find

Most weeks when Mum and I go into town to do the food shop, pay bills etc we check out a few of the charity shops and this week was no different. There's only really one of them that ever has any stitching stuff at all and this week we found these stuffed in a box along with some kits.


The really sad thing is that they cost just £2.50 for the entire lot and they are really well stitched.
I also picked up a Lanarte kit for £1.50 the same one Chiloe finished early in the year and just missed out on a John Clayton flower panel of Daffodils, it was seeing that on top of someone's walker that made me look a little closer in the box she was pawing through.

That sounds like a bargain! I'm glad they have a home where they are finally appreciated!

At least they're now in a loving & appreciative home. Love the Lanarte design - have stitched it too & it's gorgeous. :0)
