Having bought the wool for Ma’s new jumper, all we needed was needles. Unfortunately the Woollen Mills were out of the sizes required, so I jumped onto the internet and after a little searching I discovered……..ooh, a quilt shop I didn’t know about. Well, they might have knitting needles. Always worth an ask!
With the help of the map app, I soon found my way to Canterbury Quilts and the lovely Alison, who was most helpful. No, no knitting needles, but yes, lots of fabrics! Oops!
A cupboard in one corner caught my eye,
which Alison had hoped to renovate when they purchased the property, but it proved too far gone to restore. However, they have done a faithful reconstruction which you can read about here.
So what did I buy, I can hear you ask? Well, this spot was going out at $5.00 pm and as it will make a great background (for something!) I needed 4.0m (bargain of the year!), and a girl can never have too many stripes.
The pack on the left is a range called Atomic Garden.
Then, just to show how eclectic my taste is, these beautiful Paris fabrics, and a script print.
If you’re up in Bendigo at all, I recommend a visit.
PS I found the right knitting needles at the “S” shop.
