Today after work I treated myself to a leisurely browse around a craft shop. 45 minutes later I came home with a bag full of goodies!
It’s all for a mix of crafts. So i bought a book that was in the magazine section which gives ideas of different crafts and instructions on how to do them, which I thought would be good for expanding my creative repertoire!
I’m not sure about the tea blending, but we’ll see!
I also bought some funky materials (something I never thought I’d do) and a patchwork ruler, with the aim of making a patchwork pillowcase… Maybe for me, or maybe as a present, I’m not sure yet. I’d started off picking up a fat quarter of fabrics with birds on but when I saw these I couldn’t resist their brightness, so i put the bird ones back. I couldn’t find the perfect bluey green cotton for sewing them so I got this really cool variegated cotton which I hope will look cool even if my stitches show.
I bought some fine line drawing pens to go with a small sketchbook I have, as I want to try drawing some birds over the Easter holidays.
Also a book of different patterned papers for another idea I’ve had for making pretty pictures,and some new sharp scissors.
And finally some black cards with some oil pastels for an idea I’ve had for making cards (the fixative is to stop the pastels coming off when they’re touched, and the pens are for writing in the cards… I hope they work-I’ve yet to find a reliable metallic gel pen that writes smoothly).
I thought that was my final comment but look!
I just went to put my materials away and discovered that one of them has little elephants on… It’s even more gorgeous than I already thought.
So, my current focus is my crochet scarf, but after that it could be any of a number of projects! Have I got you excited about what might be coming up on my blog in the near future?! 😊
