Unpicking November

I don't know where this term has gone! I have barely done any sewing or craft at all.  There has been some op shopping of course- I thought I needed some wardrobe updates ( and haven't had time to sew!) and found some summery tops, including this sweet green crochet cardi.
  Except that there are several thousand tiny sparkly beads on it! I have a bit of unpicking still to do before I can wear it...

Op Shop Fun

I think I have convinced the JediKid that op shopping is good.  Afterall, sometimes you find lego-

Or books we don't have yet-
And you sometimes find awesome DVD's-

And sometimes you might even re-enact a scene from "Sherlock" and crack yourselves up!

Sewing pattern bonanza!

Dropped in at Glenroy Salvos on my way past today and spotted a pile of Burda sewing pattern (actually I spotted another woman looking through the patterns, which alerted me to them!).  There were heaps, all brand new.  Plus a couple of other brands.  Quite a few " young" style and several vintage look patterns too. I may have bought a couple of them...

Halloween 2016 #1

Tigerboy spotted this awesome steampunk mask in a party shop recently, but I wasn't going to pay $40 for a bit of plastic that may only get used once! Luckily there was a craft shop just around the corner, where we found a plain white cardboard mask and a roll of plaster bandage for about $4 each. 

A rummage through the shed and my craft supplies yielded an assortment of interesting bits and pieces.  Gold glue gun glue ( I knew that would come in handy one day!), some black and gold paint and a couple of hours' creating - I think it looks as good as the bought one!
