A wise mind knows that adverse
Events are blessed opportunities
For growth in disguise.
For a minute, I thought I wasn’t going to get my posting done this week. I have had many visitors and unexpected events happen this weekend, but here I am. Heather and I had been really sooking big time, as we were told our favourite wool shop had closed down!! We decided to be little detectives and check it out for ourselves. In the car and off to a neighbouring town we go. After walking around for a fair while and finding other interesting shops, we finally came across some women that told us they were not locals but did see a craft shop up the street. We took off, and what do you know......our shop is still there!!! This is what I purchased.....
The brand name is ironic!!
I decided not to go mad and buy up big, because we are coming back in a few weeks time for a good shop....(hope Pixie my hubby doesn’t see this!). Some friends of mine are having babies and they love the bright colours, so here goes. I’m sure Heather is quite jealous that I have started knitting with my new wool and she has not. Giggle giggle giggle.
A work friend gave me a nice surprise this week. A friend of hers had become bored with some patchwork she was doing and gave it away. I was fortunate to receive it. There is a fair bit of it, so I’m not sure if it was meant to be a quilt or lots of cushion covers? Doesn’t matter, I will find a use for it.
Just love the colours!
Someone spent a lot of time making these!
Since the weekend has totally zipped by, I am simply going to look forward to this next fantastic week and then enjoy next weekend. Hope you are all doing the same thing as well.
Cheers, Anita.PS Great detective work Heather!!!
