BeAuT BaRGinS

I made a visit to Spotlight on Thursday night to pick up a couple of pens to write on glass for DD#1... and as I was walking out the door, I spotted an  "On Sale" sign.
Now last week I had a bit of a clean up in my cubbyhole so I moved the large plastic buckets I have under the table for storing batting and backing fabric and also boxed up the wool and needles... so I made heaps more room. However as a consequence of this extra space I noticed that while I was sewing, the foot pedal to the sewing machine was moving further away from me ALL the time ... a big nuisance as anyone who has had this happen will know... so ... back to the story of the "On SaLe" sign...
Once my eye noticed the "on sale" sign... why of course I had to check it out.. and guess what... foot pedal anti slip mats were on the table..... and for the huge cost of ... wait for it....
$1.00  yes that's 100 cents!
Now... no more problem...   WhaT A BarGiN !!!


I needed to make sure the laptop would make it safely overseas.. (a good swap MaMa needs her tools) ... and I thought my bag was a little lacking in the padding department for travel both on a plane and in a car... so ... I cut a piece of lightweight rubber to size... covered it with some bright and funky fabric... and made a padded laptop cushion... all for ... wait for it....$0.00 yes  nil ..zero.. zilch !    WhaT A BarGiN !!!



LaSt but certainly not LeASt... I just noticed that this will be My 200th Post... yeh!!!  ... and... I realised that I get sooo much pleasure out of this blog, with friends visiting, inspiration from other crafters and most importantly YOU.. and after realising that it's all for FREE... I thought...   WhaT A BarGiN !!!


Due to some personal issues which may cause me to take off on really short notice... I may have to hold off on a 200th post giveaway until later. But rest assured I will have one... so please be patient.
