My recent searches in the charity shops were proving fruitless, I need to look elsewhere. Of course, why didn't I think of it before, Hull Scrapstore. Ideally it would be more convenient to drive there, because if I bought quite a lot it would be too heavy to carry. But, it is £2.70 each way to cross the Humber Bridge, so it makes sense to save money by going on the bus, even though I will have to walk up a very long street.
Today we have the lovely Tracey, and the gorgeous Charles on duty.
I was like a kid in a sweetie shop, ooooh look at this, getting all excited as I plunged my hands into the boxes and pulled out some lovely colours. Most of what I bought were offcuts, some just enough to make one bag. I got Charles to cut me some metre lengths from some of the roles as well, but had to call a halt when I thought I had enough to fill my shopping bags. I had to keep stopping as I walked up the long street back to the bus stop, I'm sure my arms have stretched a few inches.
I've put it all away on my shelves in the spare room, here are a few pictures. All this for £11.25, including a pair of scissors as well.
The money from the bags will go towards looking after the rescue pussies. I went round to Sue's this afternoon to give her some more cat food, and to sit for an hour in the pens with the five cats we have in at the moment. Two of them are going to a new home on Monday, but we have more waiting to come in. This is our page on catchat if you want to look.
I shall be packing my rucksack tomorrow, I'm off walkabout on Monday, to the Lake District . The YHA have a special offer on, B2G1F, works out at £9.80 per night, too good a chance to miss. Methinks I ought to look into getting a laptop so I can blog as I walk. Will have to save up a bit for it. Catch you tomorrow.
