Yesterday was a wonderful day with scrumptious Sam and today is a momentous day for today my beloved Alan made his first purchase in a quilt shop. Admittedly it wasn't exactly a fabric or a thread but I do believe it might be the start of something all the same. Here he is at Wendy's lovely new craft shop in Friskney Eaudyke (isn't that an evocative place name?)
website complete yet (she's working on her C&G) but her shop is a treasure trove of crafty goodies, not just quilting related. Well worth a visit if you're in the area and do keep an eye on her website if you're not local. I'm looking forward to when she launches her full programme of workshops at Camelot Crafts, in fact I've already asked if I can move in!
Oh yes, what did Al buy? Well, it's the strange-looking thing on his face - no, not the beard. He bought a pair of Daylight's clip-on magnifying lenses to help him enjoy his antique pocket watches in close-up detail and he was daylighted (ha ha) with them.
