Its been a bit wet n miserable here today and I had asked OH if he would take me to Farm Foods today - they have extended our local store and I had not been since they upgraded. Potentially we went just going for a look around. However there were a couple of pit stops before arriving there.
OH decided that the car needed a real good clean and we have a very good local hand wash service which is not too ridiculous once a month and so we went there first. There was a queue so I left him and went and had a look around Dunhelm whilst he waited in the car and then once that was done he would come and fetch me.
So I had a little time to have a good mooch around in Dunhelm. I am going to need some new bedding shortly so I was having a good look at what they had sheet wise and I think I may well be having a closer look in a month or so. I love soft furnishings of any kind and I was also having a good look around the section with the cushion pad blanks as I have some fabric I picked up cheap at Christmas (expensive by the metre) for next to nothing and there is enough to make some cushion covers which will match in with what I already have as well as enough to use some in a patchwork throw or two. I might start buying a couple each month - I also need some blanks for bed pillows as well. I prefer feather pads. The ones I have are washable and come up well - i tumble dry them - I also fluff the pads up in between by popping them into the tumbler.
I picked up a wicker basket quite a large one - fully lined which will make a lovely craft basket. I have a thing about baskets - but this one is large enough to hold all the wool for the crotchet gift I am in the process of making at the moment.
I also had a good look around their fabric and sewing/craft department as well as the cooking equipment section.
I also found two large mugs which I am quite chuffed with. I hope when I go back at the beginning of the month they will have some more as I really do like them.
At long last I have also acquired a new set of kitchen scales which I have been after for a little while; I have been struggling with a small set but spotted these today. I think they will be ideal.
Catch you soon.
