Today's post is a little of this and that. We were away for a few days so I haven't sewn much but I have shopped : )
While in Victoria, I came upon the most amazing wool shop. The building alone was enough to start me drooling. It's been there forever. Bricks, inside and out. Sorry about the glare. I think their windows are cleaner than mine........
Once inside, I was in awe. Samples were everywhere and the patterns were within arms reach. I bought several. Also a couple of books came home with me.
This book is by two women who live on Vancouver Island. I bought their first book and it is lovely too. The buttons? Handmade by a fellow in Nanaimo. I wish I had these before Christmas for the hats I knit. The bottom one is Burl, and the top is Yellow Cedar.
I'm hoping if I knit that wee sweater on the front of this book, I'll get a grandson to fill it : )
I'm still having fun with these economy blocks. I'm up to 56 blocks now. Still, there are several scrap baskets to go through to find more little prints.
I picked up these to go in it. I couldn't help myself!
Also, this little pile was sitting on a cutting table in a shop. I couldn't leave it there could I ?
Thanks to everyone who entered the give-away. There were several 'no-reply' commenters. If you commented through Google+ I can't reply for some reason. Anyway, the winner of the fat quarters and booklet is...................
Congratulations Karen. I have sent you an e-mail .
