…blogtober day 9 :: Sunday Stash…
How can I hit the big smoke, and NOT stock up on all the things? I’ve had a productive week, adding a heap of goodies to my collection.
- Posca pen from Eckersleys – I’ve been meaning to try these for ages, so I picked one up so I can try it without paying postage
- Calligraphy paper & sumi ink from Daiso – the minister herself got me hooked on this paper a couple of quilt camps ago (maybe the very last camp of The Before?) and this has been the first time I’ve been near a Daiso to pick some up. I was also instructed while I was there I needed the ink, so…I bought the ink!
- blocking wires and stitch markers – I only have ring style markers, or cheap BigW plastic clip markers, so I picked up a set of nice metal ones, and some wires for blocking my shawl
- fabric – as much as I love online shopping, there’s nothing quite like touching and feeling the fabric. I fell over some designer remnant swim fabric that will be perfect for Miss12’s summer swimmers, and some lovely teal spandex for myself to make a 3/4 pair of leggings for summer. I rounded it out with some “chill white” firm spandex for making some practical everyday delicates for the ladies of the house.
Of course, a week in the life of this compulsive crafter isn’t complete with a package or two! Mr Barefoot picked up some felt that arrived, just in time for some Sunday sewing. I’ve turned it into a cute kindle cover for the birthday girl – look for a post on that today or tomorrow.
And to wrap up the week, I also have some scrapbooking papers and a stencil pack waiting for me at the post office, ready to pick up so I can get back into project life!
All in all, not too shabby on the stash building this week! What fun stuff have you picked up in your travels lately?
