I'm sure lots of you already know about this lovely lady's amazing blog Here!
Well Tif started her 'challenge of the utmost kind' in September 2009 and I joined on 22nd November! Please click my sidebar for details.
I will not be buying anything for myself or my home that is new for the next year.I will only buy thrifted or handmade!
We are allowed to have a few exceptions and these are mine!
- A dog, I have been waiting for a little dog for a long time, this has been my little dream since last year and I will be acquiring a new furry friend in the next few months!
- Underwear, obviously I will not be wearing someone else's undies, so if I need to, I will have to buy new.I wouldn't want to be caught in holey greying underwear if I was hit by a bus!
That is it everything else will be thrifted and handmade!.Thanks Tif for creating such an amazing challenge, I'm sure it will be difficult at times but quite exciting too!
This green one is knitted with 2 strands of vintage 3 ply, probably from the late 1960's judging by the packaging!I love choosing buttons from my stash for the centre.
I will not be buying any 'new wool' this year.Only what I can thrift.I do have quite a large stash to be going on with though.Some of it from unfinished projects in the 1980's.
Have a wonderful weekend!Keep safe cozy and warm!Do not slip over on the ice and land on your eye like my son did yesterday!Yes he has another shiner, the second in 6 weeks!
