Op Shop Finds!

 On Friday when we took Molly for a walk, we went past 
the Op Shop and I saw this out the front. Actually, there were two but the other one had a very big stain on the top. This one is in perfect condition. It doesn't even look as though it's been used much. I've been wanting to get a stool for sometime now for when I am sitting stitching. 
It's even very comfortable to sit on.
Just ask Molly! 
She decided that there was room for her as well!
After seeing the beautiful treasures Jenny of Elefantz found at her Op Shop, I went over the the linen section. There wasn't really anything that jumped out at me but I did find this gorgeous Christmas serviette(?).
 It has the tiniest of cross stitches. I think they are done by machine but I don't care. I just love it! I plan to make something with this but I just don't know what yet.
I also found this beautiful new cream tea towel. 
I do have a plan for this one.
So I think a very successful shop for only $12! 
Ten dollars for the stool and $1 each for the other two.

Hello Christine,

What great pick ups, love that stool. Good luck with your plans for the linen. I picked up two new fat quarters in Good Sammys this week.

Happy days.
