Quilt Shop & Crochet

I had to go to the quilt shop yesterday. No really, I needed bondaweb for a project I had suddenly thought of and so obviously had to purchase the bondaweb immediately (they could have run out of it)! Anyway, while I was there I couldn't resist this ball of Japanese Noro yarn - just look at those colours. No idea what I will use it for yet but there was only one ball left and, well, nuff said really.



Later in the day, while looking for my crochet needles (don't ask) I found this crocheted bedcover. I only ever got about a foot and a half done and it is really wide, so I'm just wondering - do I continue and finish it whenever, or do I rip it down and crochet up some granny squares? Hmmm... Incidentally it is made from some utterly gorgeous Shetland wool (I think it's about 4 ply) from Jamieson & Smith up there in Lerwick.

Judging by these photos, I still have not managed to fathom out how to make them enlarge by clicking on them.... I really must pay more attention...

Not much else to report here although I may go on a trip to Linlithgow tomorrow with my good friend Maria. This involves a quilt shop, a needlecraft shop, a chocolate shop (not for me you understand), a fabric shop, an art shop and of course, lunch!! Mwwaaahaaahaaahaaa!

Hi there. Thought I'd pop over and take a look. Glad I did. You've got some really good stuff on here. Love the tyvek experiments and the journal covers, especially the second one.
You'll have to let us know what goodies called your name on your shopping trip tomorrow :)
