I love these old wooden cotton reels. I am starting to get a bit of a collection now as my nan gave me a few a couple of weeks ago. I picked these 8 up for a couple of quid. There isn't much cotton left on them but I have found many other uses for them on Pinterest. You can follow me on Pinterest here.
I also picked up these pretty knitting needles. The colour is a kind of a pinky red. I'm not a fan of metal knitting needles, I much prefer bamboo ones, but I thought these would look lovely amongst a collection of coloured needles in a pretty jug or jar :) (Don't panic Mum, I will wait until I have moved out to start this little craze)
A pencil sharpener. It was £3 but I had to have it. How cute will that look sitting on a craft desk. The handle turns round making the needle move up and down, already it has kept me amused for ages ha ha. I sat admiring it the whole drive home, much to James' annoyance I think tee hee.
So it turned out to be a very craft related weekend indeed.
Lots of Love
