I love my local op shop!

Today, I visited my local hospice op shop and was surprised with quite a few great finds...

The best of which was a little flower loom (apparently it's called an "1000 flower's" loom - I can understand why as making them is very addictive!) Can you believe it only cost $1!!! :D

Look at a couple I made earlier this evening:

And what to do with what you've made (the girls came up with these ideas - I think, you could use them to embellish stuff!):
I'll try to remember to put up a post of all the other finds I got "op shoppin" tomorrow. Don't be jealous, just remember to go out and support your own local op shops!

I'm showing my age here...
but I had an afgan kit in the
1960s that used this flower loom. After making a kazillion flowers you crocheted them together with a chain stitch going from flower petal to opposite flower petal.

Can you believe I made two of those afgans?
