Lots of bargains to be had at very reasonable prices. I was restrained, well not really considering the size of my stash at home, but I am excited about my purchases. The lazy Kate will just keep my wrapping threads out of the way of my other bobbins and the Mohair slivers will add a lovely bit of lustre to some Batts. The two cones were a good find; the wool will act as a great core yarn but the Linen is destined for a project I have in mind. I am sure that the lady who advised me it would make a wonderful warp would be horrified to know that I have no intentions of weaving with it but for $10 it was worth the investment for an idea.
|My purchases at the Textile Bazaar|
I could have spent hours there, the space was so beautifully presented with lots of wonderful textile craft to tempt you for Christmas presents. It is a credit to Robyn and Prue for it's presentation and the fact there is exhibition space and classroom space attached is truly amazing. I just know that this will become a meeting space for all things textile in Melbourne - there is even a space designated for having a cuppa and a chat - how good is that!
|Hand made buttons, just had to have them!|
On the way home I went to visit Mum and Dad and then arrived back home just as DH rocked up. A glass of wine and a moment to catch up on each other's news and then a bite to each out at our local Greek restaurant.
One of those days to remember.
