Here's the rest of my USA purchases. The balls of yarn are wool and made specifically for felting, so planning some fun with that! The fleece fabrics and pattern are to make a cosy nest for the new grandchild we're expecting in a few months.
The picture below shows an assortment of "stuff" - oddments that I picked up in sales and dollar stores, beads and buttons, a tin that just caught my fancy because it was pink and spotty ....
I always buy some of the Jo-Ann fat quarters because at $1.49 they're a fraction of the price they are here in the UK.
The brown(ish) fabrics are to make a little wall hanging quilt in one of the books/magazines on quilting I picked up ... promised myself that I would try to do more in this line, and I do LOVE sewing.
I also bought a couple of really great books including the Collaborative Art Journals which is SO inspiring! I've done circle journals but would like to go further into the more arty styles. Now who can I persuade to be in them .....??
As you can see, when it rained I didn't waste any time, and I'm delighted with my purchases. Most of them were reduced or on special offer or bought with 40% off coupons etc., so I actually didn't break the bank although I know it looks like it!!
