I’ve never really enjoyed going to big shopping centres and being in lockdown has meant I haven’t been allowed to go, yippee! Thank goodness for internet shopping though as the state of my winter pj’s leaves a lot to be desired. The Golfer and I were trying to work out how old some of them were, remembering that I’d forgotten to pack myself pj’s when we went away one Winter many moons ago and had to buy replacements.
I do like the Bed Bath and Table pj’s so jumped on line to check them out. Unfortunately the ones I really liked were all sold out (obviously people with good taste!) but did find these.
Aren’t they cute? And snuggly warm too. We’ve been having near freezing temps overnight so flannel pj’s and a quilt on the bed with the blankets has been a MUST!
I’ve been spreading the love with my fabric buying too and scored a parcel full from Patchwork with Busyfingers which included a couple of extras which was very sweet
The parcel contained these fabrics, unusual colours for me I know……
Not sure what I’ll do with them but ideas are percolating……
And the extras?
The percolating might just include this design, hand pieced not paper pieced though – you know me!
Having enjoyed my recent sock making foray I decided to get some more sock yarn (I’d run out – heaven forfend!) and GJ told me about these beautiful yarns from Half Baked Hand Dyed which are made here in Melbourne – perfect! So soft and a great array of colours, including stripes of which I’ll get some next time. Mum has finally taken up my offer to make her a pair of socks and when I sent her the pic she chose the aqua. They’ll get started very soon. (You can see more of Danni‘s yarns on Instagram)
Instagram is a trap, isn’t it? Having not been on social media while I was unwell, I’m back to having a quick look every now and then and, oh dear! This parcel just happened to turn up from The Next Stitch Could be the beginnings of a new quilt??
Have you been buying anything other than fabrics online, or have you been brave and ventured to the “real” shops??
