A few goodies...

.... and a little more hope...

I went on a stroll to Spotlight today and these goodies found their way into my arms... The wool is for another scarf for me - I had seen this a month or so back and had really liked it - so today I was doubly impressed to see that it was also cheaper - $7.99 a ball instead of $12.95. The Bronwyn Hayes Stitchery was also reduced in price by nearly $4.00 as were the two plain pieces of 25ct Lugana cloth - in fact they got cheaper at the register and the end price was $2.00 each - cheaper than the $5.00 price tag on one...

The only thing which was full price was the variegated embroidery thread and the knitting needles which were $4.00 respectively... I know G - here am I talking to you about selling my stash overflow and I have gone and bought more- but it felt so right at the time :-))...



Now here is my progress on 'Hope' - not too far I am afraid but I am hope to have it finished by the tend of the week so I can start on the 5th block which is 'Peace'...


Well, another week awaits - so until next time...

ps ooooppppsssss - I nearly forgot - finally paid off my layby on Friday so ,yes, I now have another book to add to my collection... The Fabric of Society* is definitely a keeper and while I have only given it a very quick look I can tell it will be the book I shall dip into time and time again - it was a little expensive - but in my opinion well worth the money... For those of you who are passionate about the history of Australian quilts or those of you who just like knowing the 'back story' of quilts this will be something that you will want to include in your library... I would go as far as saying that I would hold it up there with 'The Gentle Arts 200 Years of Australian Women's Domestic and Decorative Arts' by Jennifer Isaacs as a wealth of information about early Australian colonial history and the women who helped shape it..

*I am in no way connected to Annette Gero or her book - her site gave the best explanation to what the book is about...

Hahaha!! Oh I do understand, you know that! We have to buy new stash to replace the old stash that we are getting rid of, don't we?
Looking forward to seeing that book - sounds wonderful.
'Hope' is looking lovely.
