Especially after a busy weekend.
However work aside, I popped into town at dinner on the look out for crafty things. I have two new books one on cushions and in particular there is a cushion created from Suffolk Puffs that I am quite interested in. I have also seen a bed throw created in the same way. These two projects would marry up very well and could be worked a little at a time. I have some small pieces of pretty fabric which I think would look lovely made up like this. I also bought another crochet book. In fairness they were from the cheapie book store in town The Works so I have paid nowhere near the full price.
When I was younger I liked everything to match as I am getting older I like things to blend hence my interest in patchwork and my crochet projects. Colour is important to me. Refound items are being used along with items that I have had from new. Over the years I have found some beautiful needlework items where they are damaged - say on the frame or the mounting and they have had a new frame added or new mounting and the item is as good as new. That type of reclaiming pleases me the most.
I had to go and get some more wool for the present project I am working on at the moment and also a couple of more balls of wool in readiness for the highly coloured throw.blanket I have my eye on. A deep purple and a lilac were purchased today. I shall keep adding to the stash as and when I come across other colours that I have not yet sourced.
I have also bought some more beads to make some more necklaces and bracelets. The beads were 20% off. So I have saved a little.
Right I must be off.
Catch you soon.
