LOTS OF TIME FOR TALKIN'.....
OK folks, another photo heavy post coming up so the text is pretty much limited to captions so you can whizz through it really quickly. I'm really excited today because Margaret Glitter&Glue is coming to stay for a couple of days and Ali Wade is coming over for lunch tomorrow as well - happy dance!
Right, the desk yesterday:
My mate Helen came for a cuppa and catch-up. I couldn't have her sitting there doing nothing (!) so she made pom-poms to attach to the charity beanies. She's a good lass :-D
We had a lovely morning nattering and soon all the hats were sorted (apart from the top right, we just couldn't find a matching yarn for that one!)
The desk on Monday:
Some new purchases, material that I'm going to make something with and the finished masterboard bag.
I've got a project in mind but can't tell you what yet! Watch this space.....
The finished craft bag - looks a bit wonky but it's ok in reality!
And then there was last weekend! If you're bored by now, feel free to dip out!!
G and I had a lovely weekend in Bath - he was attending a creative photography course at the Royal Photographic Society there (a birthday prezzy from me) so whilst he was doing inventive things I met up with Julia!
We found this AWESOME haberdashery stall in the Guildhall market - it started at one end with yarns, then moved into embroidery, then ribbons, buttons and finally into paper crafting supplies. It must have been 20 metres long.
It just went on and on and on........
I may have bought a couple of items :-D
And then we found the leather stall!! Oooh, they had some wonderful stuff there all made in the tiny little workshop behind that door to the back:
There were lots of leather bound books to fondle (and sniff!)
Including a suitcase full of tiny little notebooks in leather and suede...so tempting.
And giant perspex spheres with gorgeous journals in - very Harry Potteresque!
But this display of tools on the back of the door is what really appealed:
Different leather working tools for a variety of jobs and each in their proper place - we both liked that a lot. Needless to say we were so busy chatting, laughing and generally being rude that I forgot to take any more pics of me and Julia - hopefully I'll have some photos of Margaret and Ali next week.
I am sorry about these long posts, there's just so much to share!!
