A surprise in the post

I had a lovely, unexpected surprise in the post today when I arrived home from work. A brown envelope was waiting for me which could have contained anything from a bill to some random advertising thing. However, it wasn’t anything as dull as that. It was a lovely treat… £25 of Hobbycraft vouchers!  Whoop Whoop!

The last time I was in my nearest store in Stockport it had had a facelift and they were having a draw to win gift vouchers to celebrate.  I duly filled in my details and forgot all about it.  You see, I never win anything!  I can’t say that any more can I!!

I’ve spent plenty money in Hobbycraft and other craft shops over the years so it’s great to get a bit of it back.  I think I may use my winnings to buy some lovely Amy Butler for Rowanyarn.  Last week I treated myself to 3 balls and haven’t decided what to do with them yet.  I might just pop back for some more and get enough to make myself a bag.  Yes, that sounds like a plan!

    I love the Amy Butler for Rowan too!! I bought 4 colours of the DK a few days ago, and I’m going to save for the whole range. I’m making a scarf (again) but now for winter. I was inspired by this scarf: http://www.flickr.com/photos/woodwoolstool/3378356117/in/set-72157612548469389/

    p.s. the pattern for the white scarf I got from this book: http://bypetra.nl/blog/2010/04/28/craft-book-review-pretty-color-crochet-and-knit-goods-2/

      Hi Petra
      Oooooh I love the Japanese crochet designs and have been looking for the best ways / places to buy them. I’ll check out your Etsy supplier.

      Don’t you find flickr great for inspiring ideas – I could browse it for hours but end up with too many ideas I don’t have enough time to make them all
