Let's Hear it for Freebies!

You have to love freecycle! I just got me a mammoth amount of cross stitching stuff. A lady posted that she had three carrier bags full of cross stitching bits and pieces, threads, charts and loads of the freebies off the front of magazines. They were free to a good home so basically 'come and get 'em!'  I was expecting there to be a reasonable amount but Oh My Goodness! 

I have tried to fit it in in this photo but its a bit of a squeeze! There must be a good hundred little cross stitch kits and thread by the ton!  The rest is made up of books containing hundreds of charts, as well as other 'front of mag' freebies like chart magnifiers and thread cutters and frames... the list goes on!  My evenings are well and truly filled till 2033!

For those who aren't familiar with Freecycle it is a website that allows people to advertise the stuff they no longer want that other people might want.  The only real rule is that the stuff must be given away for free.  You can also post on the sites asking if anyone happens to have what you are looking for!  I have seen cars and caravans on there, they need some work, but if you have the time then there is a project for you!  I love it as it is a great way to get rid of what you don't want and know that it is still being useful somewhere else, not sitting rusting in a corner!


  1. Wow...that is certainly a great bundle you got there...I have never heard of the site but it's good to know it exists so thanks for the heads up on it!!
