Me and Gemma had big plans for our day together. Go to the Abakhan Warehouse Sale in Mostyn (North of Wales), stop at Ikea on our way back and sew a top each. And guess what?! We did manage to do all of the above.
We managed to get there for about 10:20 and the queue was huge. We’ve had to wait in the queue for about 1 hour. We did get a little taster sausage! Lol
While waiting in the queue we went past the raffle prizes table. And I got a few. As my lucky strike continued, I won three raffle prizes (it did help that there 3 prizes and 5tickets, that increased my chances significantly). Here is what I won.Then we spent about 1 hour browsing the times. We both got a fill a bag of £10 with fabric. I stuffed mine really well! Got more buttons. I could not believe, but there were some ladies, picking them by the button. I just got a handful until I filled a bag. And then there was another random bag with a lot of tidbits.We had to put all our treasures into a trolley and have the security fella take it to the car. LOL. After that, we went on to Ikea for a plant or two and some pegboards and some accessories for them and came home with a lot more. Finally got my hands on a buttons rug.Once we managed to stuff our purchases into the car, we came back to mine and managed to make ourselves a Briar Top by Megan Nielsen. A bit of faffing about as the overlocker didn’t respond all the time.However, in about 2 hours we both had a top and ended up doing a little photo shoot to end the day! Took me about 5 minutes to figure out why the remote control was not working! Forgot to turn on the camera! Dah… We did have a lot of fun trying to get a few good photos of our makes.Yet again, I spent a fabulous day doing sewing activities or getting stuff for the sewing areas (the plants and crockery do not count)!
