I don't give a fig though, Fran and I set off late morning and had a stroll round Lampeter, and yes I did buy more fabric. A panel (I will share that later) and some fat quarters.
These are for a little project that I have in mind.
On the way back we stopped in Llandeilo and just felt obliged to have an ice cream, Honeycomb for Fran and Fruits of the Forest for me.
Then we went for a walk round and found a new wool shop, filled with yarny lusciousness. I did not buy anything but had a chat with the owners. They told me that on Tuesday afternoons there is a knit and natter from 2 till 4.
Then to cap it they are having a delivery of sock yarn, free patterns and will be having someone to help with virgin sock makers.
But before I rattle on further I have to do a show and tell.
Yesterday morning the postie brought me a parcel, a surprise.
I opened it up to find these,
A glorious crochet wall hanging mounted on a hoop.
Even the hanger was exquisite.
It came with a card ( now who forgot to take a picture) with a flock of butterflies .
And a crochet book, just in time for my next wreath, ( I have the polystyrene form)., and a tin of truffles.
This parcel of delights came from Sooze, of Her indoors, Him outdoors.
Thank you so much Sooze, I love them all. I have a few of the "20 to make" books but not this one.
Back to fabric, I have 3 patterns floating, nay flying round my head. I have started cutting for the first one, the pattern is drawn up for the second and I have fabric on order (half price from Hobbycraft) for the third.
I have started to gather my fabrics together,
Fat quarters from Lady sew and sew, they are very cheap if you take pot luck.
More of those and still more to decide upon.
Some yardage from stash , and still more to come.
The rain has stopped and the sun is shining.
Ben and I are off outside while we can.
