Afternoon all, this morning I visited my favourite wool shop, Three bags wool in Aberlour. Mmmmm I've now taken to stroking wool instead of paper and card! Strange but true.....if you are a crafter you so will understand, if you are not, you'll just think of me a tad weird....LOL. If only you knew what you are missing!
This is what I bought.....ho, ho, ho!
I also got a size 8 hook but that is for a different project. I'm loving the colours aren't you?
Whilst in Aberlour it would have been rude not to stock up on some shortbread with a stop off at the Walkers shop and then onto the lovely deli too. The deli in Aberlour is just like walking back in time, shelves stocked up high with packets of everything under the sun, I just love wandering around it. It's amazing what you find and I now have a couple of great ideas for Christmas.
Then it was a journey back to Elgin with a stop off for lunch at the new café and shop at Allarburn farm shop....oh the scones are to die for! The shop is fabulous too, loads of ideas again for Christmas and lots of foodie ideas for partying over the festive season.
In other words a successful morning out.
Back to yesterday, and a while a go, my good friend Irene bought me a kit to make a bracelet along the same style as the rug I am making. In other words, without using the technical terms, it is weaving woollen threads. This is a great way to use up odds and ends of leftover wool from other projects.
Here is my finished bracelet.....
Mmm I quite like this idea. I think a wee bit more practising is requires but I'm loving the effect.
Surprisingly it's in just my colours!
It is a lot quicker to make than the rugs too.
Anyway that's all from me today, I've now got a hard decision of whether to iron, again, or crochet.....you know what won last week!
Fireworks tonight at a friends house, which should be fun if it stays dry. I don't want to be out too long as Holly isn't too keen on the fireworks, as most dogs aren't, she ended up cuddling on my lap Saturday night when the local displays started. Bless she didn't know what was going on but she didn't like it.
That's all from me today....catch you again tomorrow. x
