How I Spent My Day Off…

There has been a bit of a yarn theme running through today. First off, I sewed up a bunch of crochet flowers I’ve been making as my March “Stashbuster” project. They only take a few minutes each and now I have more than I know what to do with. I’m sure a few lucky ladies will be glad to take them off my hands …

I also took a trip to my Local Yarn Store. Yes, I know I work in a “wool shop”, so that might sound like a bit of a Busman’s Holiday, but it’s always such fun to see yarns  we don’t stock at work and today was extra special as I discovered an old colleague from years back  hard at work there. You know, yarn stores are always filled with the nicest of people and so I’m not surprised that one day I should come across someone I know in another!

It was so lovely to just wander and fondle the yarns. Just when I thought my afternoon couldn’t get better home made cake appeared (it was meant for the work shop ladies, but us customers must have looked hungry). So, Ladies of Stash, thank you for making my visit such a lovely afternoon, but now I must go find a home for my beautiful new yarn.

Happy knitting everyone.

  1. Be Sweet!! How wonderful, such a darling yarn. Maybe you can talk Riana into stocking this as it comes from her homeland.
    Have a lovely Mothering Sunday

    What a lovely day….I love fondling too!
    Loving your flowers….its great to find something to use up bits (that term stashbuster is fab!) and that can be done without much creative cogitating.
    I’m sure you will have lots of takers for your bunch!
    Happy Weekend.

    Thank you, Mothering Sunday blissful. There are chocolates, home made cake (made by the teen) and a trashy novel, hope yours is equally good. Tx

Ah, we knew how to Christmas in the 1960's. Missing my lovely Mum today - and love that we're both wearing outfits she made (crimplene, whatever happened to you???)
