The sun is almost out and the boys are off butterfly hunting, so I’m on a day of much needed R&R.
As promised here’s my stash confessional, the first pic being my purchases from the lovely quilt shop.
I don’t know what you call it but I managed to get some double-sided bondable vilene for my PC’s and some Wonder Under, thought I’d try that instead of bondaweb. I then just had to buy the Oliver Twist pack, well you do don’t you, and then I spotted the coloured cotton a broder, which I can’t get down South at all. And to finish off 2 reels of beaading thread and some ribbons for sampling. Oh I forgot the cotton batting I just had to try!
I went into Norwhich yesterday and found the lovely art shop I’d sourced on the net , before I left home, and you’ve guessed it they had the exact little roller that I had to go and find as my friend Shirley has one for her lino printing, so I had to have it, plus some gorgeous turquoise printing ink, also coveted from Shirley’s stash.
And then as I’d done so well in getting around with my map I had to find the fabric shop and would you belive it, they had some wonderful cotton lawn and something they called craft cotton, so I just had to buy it. Ooops!!!
Anyway after all that shopping I was looking for somewhere quiet to recover and went off in search of the cathedral and here’s some pics I took there.
I can never resist the patterns of cloister arches, there's something so pleasing about the symetry.
One of the 1000 roof bosses!!
I couldn't resist this gorgeous boar!!
Or this beautiful tomb pattern.
Well it's off to have a creative rest of the day now, this is life !!
