IT'S UP TO US TO BE THE CHANGE
AND EVEN THOUGH WE ALL CAN STILL DO MORE
THERE'S SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR.
Firstly, a massive apology to the lovely ladies who left comments on my blog last week... for various reasons, I didn't return the honour with most of you. I'm so sorry, there was a lot on my plate and it just didn't happen. I promise I'll do better this week.
Secondly, I'm just so happy that Julia's home :-)
Consequently there's not much to share this week:
I'm deciding which fabric to make a zipped tote out of for a present - for someone who doesn't 'do' pretty, lol!!
I've dragged a few bits out of the box and am staring at them with no clue whatsoever...sigh. I quite fancy using the stripes, possibly.
What I will tell you about, though, is this wool I found in Hobbycraft when I was looking for a cheapish acrylic yarn with which to finish that rainbow blanket I've been crocheting. It's Hobbycraft's own brand, with some of the proceeds going to the Women's Institute and it's brilliant! It's the nicest feeling acrylic I've ever worked with - not only that, but 100 grams cost £2, PLUS Hobbycraft had a 3 for 2 offer, so it worked out incredibly cheap. The range of colours isn't huge so I hope they extend it. That plum colour is delicious - it's going to be a baby jacket :-)
Finally, I've had some more happy mail - ATCs from Darnell and Elizabeth W, both of which are so funky! And a gorgeous buttons and bunting card from Jackie - they're all on my pin board where I can admire them. Thanks, lovely gals :-)
So, short (for me!) and sweet - have a great week!!
