Susan, Tracey and I went on an excursion, a craft excursion and wow was it fun, we got lost, laughed lots, spent lots (well 2 of us did, one was very good), drooled/dreamt/wished lots.
My photos aren't in order sorry.
Our second stop was in Wembly at Woolly Lattes where we had lunch and amazing coffee, yes I just had to buy some. You should have seen Tracey's face when her latte was presented with a little fluffy warmer wrapped around it (Susan and Tracey both took photos- I forgot my camera-what kind of scrapbooker am i?) Of course we couldn't leave this shop without buying the kit to make these latte warmers. They come with wool, coffee mug and the most adorable polka dot needles. Our first stop was Calico & Ivy in Mosman Park. The purpose of our visit was to buy some fabric for a project that we are going to make together and as you can see by the next photo i got a bit sidetracked. Just look at this yarn, isn't it divine, it's kind of like ribbon oh so yummy, of course i just had to buy some. Luckily the lady at the shop said that you need to roll it into a ball before you use it. Well as soon as i got home that is what i was doing and it took me four hours (I nearly gave up, I nearly got the scissors out and cut out the knots but i didn't). Then after dinner i started knitting my scarf, almost done, will show you later.
Now here is my fabric and underneath that Africany looking piece is a sold dark brown-sorry you cant actually see it. Now the trim and the felt don't actually belong to the project but they were calling out to me and i had to buy them. The three of us have such different tastes in colours it's amazing, which is a good thing. I am so predictible, look at the trim and felt they nearly match the colours of my fabric but that's me, i love earthy colours.
On Friday i received a little/big Stampin Up order and have made some STUFF that i will show you tomorrow along with my Anzac Day photos where Joe marched once again but this time with my dads medals. It was a moving day.
Off now to do some knitting or play with my SU.
