Stocking up!

80 zipsMy next craft fair fast approaches (27th March, Horse and Jockey, Chorlton) so I’m busy making and doing.  I’ve a few new things on the go so needed to get a few bits and pieces in.

Firstly I needed some 5 inch zips.  Right now I don’t need 80 of them so I really can’t explain why I bought 80 of them, particularly when they were available in batches of 10!  But 80 I bought so if you ever hear me mention a need for zips, draw my attention to this post.

I’ve been working on some new little projects for the craft fair that required the little zips and I’m really pleased with the few I’ve made so far. 


Lots of lavender


The other thing I’ve stocked up on is a big bag of lavender.  I’ve been meaning to get some for a while but whenever I saw any in shops if was really expensive for a tiny amount. 

A quick search online found Daisy Shop which had all different quantities and types of lavender available.  I didn’t go as mad as I did with the zips, but got enough to fill a big old coffee  jar for the price others were charging for enough to fill a spice jar.  I’m planning to make some little hanging lavender filled hearts and will write about them as soon as I have something to show you. 


The parcel the lavender came in smelled great as soon as it popped through the letter box.  I hope the Royal Mail enjoyed the scent as it was winging its way to me!
