A girl can never have too many Rowenta Irons !
This is the third one I have found at a second hand store this summer.
Do I feel lucky? You better believe it...





My jaw dropped to the ground when I saw this NEW Olfa Circle Cutter.
I have been eyeing these for a few years, just couldn't put out the $25 to buy one.
Glad I waited...





Plastic Rolling Pins
Great for wrapping with fibers for Rag Rolling.
Rubber bands wrapped around these make a great rolling stamp on fabric.
The plastic makes for easy clean up too.





Stencils and Stamps are always great for Textile Painting and Stamping on Fabric

The Power Strip will travel inside my sewing machine trolley case.
How many times do you get into class and there aren't enough outlets to plug in your machine, light, iron, etc.





The White Glue is perfect for making your own Fabric Paper

This junior size apron will be perfect for when I have a little visitor to the Thread Shed.


My philosophy...NEVER underestimate a Thrift Store

Wow - your thrift stores have some great bargains! Our 'Charity Shops'here in the UK never seem to have craft items but I have bought cotton shirts to cut up for patchwork and bead necklaces for embellishments.

I love scouting round sales and charity shops. You never know what you might find. I love your little frog on the lily leaf and the dragonfly stencil. You've certainly got some goodies there!!
