I was reading Anna's blog, and it got me thinking about MY style.
What is my style???
Well, I think if my circumstances were different my style would be different.
I have three kids and we are a single income family. My husband is now on a wage as compared to previously being self-employed.
I would say my style could be called, budget, thrifty, frugal, and what ever other words mean cheap. I like to buy whatever fabric is on sale at Spotlight.
The quilt that is sitting on my machine at the moment includes denim and gingham, cause you get more for your money, and what ever quilting fabrics were in the $5 pile. I do like it, but if my budget were unlimited it would look completely different. and it would befilled with bamboo batting.
I can't justify paying full price for yarn so I lookout for good jumpers to unravel. so far I have only done one. I have recently discovered Bendigo Woolen Mills and feel that their prices are quite affordable.
Oh, and lately, I feel that alot of op-shops charge too much. The other day an op-shop wanted $3 for a crochet hook. I got a new one for about $5. And, I saw a young man go out the back with a little ceramic trinket box at my local Vinnies, he soon emerged and reported to the lady at the desk that the trinket box would fetch $30 on eBay. She quickly responded, "oh, we had better put $25 on it then", not much of an opportunity there if you ask me!!!
Anyway, if budget weren't an issue, my style would be completely different.
Here are a few things that I love regardless of price...
This girls spring wrap can be found here.
The two gorgeous quilts above have now been sold, but the beautiful blue one below is available here.
And that outfit below was created by Kate from Foxs Lane and I do wish it was for sale.
