The school holidays are coming to an end here....
we have enjoyed lots of beautiful warm sunshine,
 lazy mornings, fresh air
and family time.

we were spectating, not participating!

 A few books have been devoured,
new technology installed (yet to be mastered!),
music has filled the air....
its been a chance to recharge batteries,

although I usually need a few days to get back into the weekly routine.

Its also been an opportunity to recharge the stash!!

I love looking at fellow bloggers thrifty finds
(and have been in awe of  Wendy's keen eye as seen on September Violets).
A while ago I found these gems in charity shops:

Some of the threads and the cream cotton have already been put to good use!

My stash has also been boosted by these beautiful skeins that were part of a very generous lady's down sizing.

The shop they were purchased from closed down more than 20 years ago!

Some bright acrylic from the same source will be used for some winter scarves for charity.

Whilst recharging there has been some
crochet hooking,
a bit of a spin,
oodles of ideas

 and lots of photos for inspiration....

so with some of  the creations....
I'll be back...
(we watched the Terminator Quadrilogy too!)
