Shopping, Shopping and more Shopping

I'm not generally a big shopper but I do have binges  every  now and then,  I thought I would share with you some of my after Christmas Shopping Bargains!
First off are some Cookie Cutters Originally $6.99 reduced to $3.50 reduced again to $1 each wow  I am ready for a cookie cutter swap anyone ? lol
Then  some Christmas Ribbon marked down to .68c per roll.
 Then these lovely packets of  tone on tone white fat quarters.  Originally $26.99 per packet then reduce to $9.00 then take off another 30%   makes it $6.30 per packet.  There were 8 fat qaurters in each packet.

Then I got these 9 fat flats for .70c each (marked down from $3.99)
Next up is this cute little Christmas fat quarter pack $27.99 down to $9.70,  isn't that bird just the cutest.

I couldn't resist these 12 days of christmas vintage style fabrics,  all 1/2 metre cuts $2.80 each
Same again with these prints 1/2 metre for $2.80 each
Then I couldn't resist these dots and stripes metre cuts $4.55 each
and just because I can these 3 1/2 metre cuts for $2.80 each 
and not to forget some non Christmas fabric that I love the colour 1 metre cuts of $4.00 each
and just for good measure I got these just before Christmas and really wish I hadn't because I only 30% off the full price lol

All together I have over 20 metres of fabric,   enough to make a project or two.   My shopping spree  is now over and because I have to do some serious saving.

I need to do some serious saving because I have decided to go to the AQC next year in Melbourne and I was hoping to get any tips and advise from anyone that has been before where to stay etc...  I will be travelling by myself so any help will be gratefully accepted.

Talk to you all again next year.

Opening my Santa Sack Presents

This was the first Santa Sack Swap that I joined.  Cheryl gave us the go ahead to open up today,  so I got the kids and away we went.  
 This is the lovely Sack that Michelle made busting full with presents.

 Aren't these scissors so cute,  they will be so handy in my needle book (when I make it)
 These ornaments look so cool on my tree.

 Some yummy fabric

 Some inspirational tools.
 Some delicious drinks and eats.
A very cute musical box with a Christmas Mug as well.
and my favourite babushka manicure set.

Thanks so much Michelle, and also thanks to Cheryl for organising this swap.
