more good stuff

went for a walk in the sunshine today, to the shops with mum, and dropped into the local vinnies as we always do, and scored the above loot. Apparently I am doing something right lately and the vinnies gods are smiling upon me. (Or would that just be St. Vincent himself? hmmn). Just the other day I was giving my very thrifty mister instructions to find me some red fabric, because it seems to be very hard to come by, and lo and behold, I walk into the local and there are two lovely specimens just waiting for me. You gotta love that. Also, a knitted school cardi I took a punt on for the willow, which he surprisingly loved and wore immediately, and says he will wear to school, as the school jumper hasn't been a big hit. Not cold enough yet, I guess.
Oh, and we're doing this now:
and also this:
I do apologise for that blinding light in the top right hand corner, but it was a bit hard getting him in the shot with all that new-found bounciness.

wow - solids already. time goes so fast doesn't it.
love your thrifty finds. isn't it funny how your needs can be met, as long as you're patient. david really wanted a wooden outdoor setting but he didn't want to pay a lot of money for it. lo and behold, a few months later some people up the road from us were having a garage sale and we happened to walk by and they were selling their setting for $50 - bargain! we love it.
can't wait to see what you make out of that fabric.
