A quick breeze in and breeze out at the newest Lifeline Store in Cairns, always lovely, pleasant, welcoming people to greet you:0)
Don't know why but just couldn't leave these buttons behind...
Instantly these became little flowers for me, stitch some pretty little beads in the middle and put them on something....somewhere...sometime, (i will!!)
and these, from the days when we had 2 & 1 cent pieces, how long ago was that? 22 cents each. And we also have 1 more number in our phone numbers now than we had back then. (see on the bottom of the container...am I rambling?)
and the last lot, which are probably my favourite and a little bit bigger than the other floral ones.
They were all supposed to be 5 cents each button but the man didn't want to count them out so he gave me each canister for 20 cents each!! That was only after I insisted that 10 cents for each canister buttons included was far too cheap, and he wouldn't take more than 20 cents!!
and with my current crocheting addiction i just couldn't leave this behind.
the frilly edge and the big flowers sucked me in, i should be able to copy them, love a challenge!! but I would make granny squares and put a flower in the middle of each....and i had better stop thinking about this until I finish the one I am doing now!!
and today was my lucky day, half price on the green tickets and the crocheted blanket had a green ticket.....$5.95 reduced to $2.95! all that work by someone for $2.95, I just had to give it a home!
Already Maddison has curled up and fallen asleep on it in her bed :0)
Off to crochet MY blanket and not think of a new one ;0)
