For dinner tonight we had left over roast chicken cooked in a pot with carrot and broccoli. It turned into a lovely soup which I poured into bowls half full of rice. Healthy, cheap and yummy. And helping my family to shake these coughs.
Once I had Dolly in bed at 7pm I sat down in front of a the TV screen and crafted for 3 hours while watching the Closer.

And the 2nd present for Dolly's special person is completed. It cost me roughly $1 in materials from old clothes purchased in op shops, ribbon, 1 new snap lock button and new thread. Buttons were from freecycled buttons. It did however take me about 4 hours to complete as I kept making mistakes and having to unpick to resew. I guess I was blinded and distracted by TV.
Did you have a fab frugal day too?
Do you craft to save your pennies?
