Favorite Things Friday

My favorite this week is when all the Christmas gift wrap, ornaments, and even Christmas fabrics go on sale.  I bought some really cool gift tags, and some napkins and paper plates, each for under $1.


Before Christmas, I bought some Christmas fabric for 50% off.  I was going to use it to make the rest of the stockings for my family, but I ran out of time/steam and didn't get all the stockings made.  I did use the "bah humbug" fabric for the lining of one of the stockings I made!



To see what other's favorites, check out Quilting in My Pyjamas!

Love the fabric. What are you doing with the blue? I really like it. I love all the sales, too. I buy up ribbon that doesn't say "Christmas" and use them year round. I have a ribbon addiction.

Nice collection there Thea, and even sweeter knowing it was all on sale.

I really like the bah humbug fabric! I haven't seen that one yet. Nice score on all of your deals!

I love the bah humbug fabric: I really really wanted a shirt that said "actually, I'm not really into christmas" to wear at work so it would have been perfect for me.

Spotlight put all their christmas stuff down by 75% about a fortnight before chritsmas, which was handy. Meant I was less inclined to stock up afterwards - all I really bought was some star shaped cake tins for my sister.

I love buying up wrapping and cards after Christmas. Those sales are excellent.

I resisted Christmas fabric this year with the exception of two metres of two different fabrics I hadn't seen before that are quite different from the usual traditional fabric. I love the humbug fabric.

Crazy bargains Thea. Well done !

That's when I buy all my Christmas bags, wrapping and cards. Best time of the year. :)

Gotta love those after Christmas sales! The only deals I got this year were on candy, the one thing I didn't need, but oh, how I love it!

Love the "bah humbug" fabric. LOL! I love the post Christmas sales on all those festive goodies. Trouble is I put them away somewhere safe for next Christmas and then can't find them.
