The last few weeks have been quite joyous here. I have had time to visit craft shops and on Wednesday a friend came to stay and we decided to go and trawl the antique and charity shops of Stratford Upon Avon. It was, I have to say a really lovely and easy going day, with the obligatory stop for afternoon tea!
Last week I also visited my closest yarn shop. Well there are much closer but they only seem to offer garish acrylic colours and so I have to drive twenty odd minutes away to HSC Crafts in Stoney Stratford. The choice here is always great and the staff are really friendly. I love to see the yarn I am purchasing and feel it and so I never, well hardly ever, buy a new range from the Internet without doing a little investigating first. As you can see below, the trip was well worth it.
Right I am off to frantically clean my house with the prospect of my Mum arriving this evening! Argh!! Best wishes to you all.
