My partner went to a yard sale today. He picked up 12 circulars of various sizes (still in the packages), a set of 6 crochet hooks, stiitch counters, stitch holders, portable scissors and a needle case...$5.00. I'm so proud that he supports my craft.

Ah, spring, Saturday morning

Ah, spring, Saturday morning and garage sales! Bless our supportive partners. Bill would come home with the most amazing things. Sewing machines, crochet hooks, fabric, yarn, knitting needles and any other fiber related items to feed my various addictions. He also managed to find several Weave-It Looms which I now cherish. Living in Turkey, well, the concept of garage sales doesn't really exist. (Me thinks it is a by-product of advanced American consumerism.)
So, a request - if any of you or your partners find Weave-It Looms for under $10 on your garage sale excursions, please consider picking them up for me. I'm toying around with the idea of conducting weaving classes here in Istanbul and would like to have at least 10 for teaching purposes. A friend is coming over the middle of August for a visit and he's agreed to bring stuff over for me. If you can help me out, send me a private message so we can work out the details. Thanks! And again, we love our supportive partners!!!

It is good to have partners that support us though. Scott buys things like that for me whenever he hits the estate sales around here as well.

What a great deal. I think I

What a great deal. I think I am going to have to go to thrift stores and sales more often. It is also great that your partner supports you like that.
