I had the urge the other day to top up my stash basket, but I couldn’t decide what to buy. The market stalls didn’t beckon.  The craft shop didn’t beckon and although the art shop did beckon, it didn’t beckon for yarn. (That’s where I bought my crayons etc.).  So I came home with hands empty of yarn.

No worries my laptop beckoned!!!!  I had the hankering for some cotton yarn. For its softness and even quality of the stitch. To try something different. My Stylecraft yarn was leaving me cold. Uninspired. Oh don’t get me wrong. I love the colours and the range of colours you can get, and I love standing in front of the rainbow wall in the wool shop, but I wanted to do something different. So my fingers did a little walking over my keys until I discovered this and this arrived….


What a huge stamp!


And inside a brown carrier bag, slightly crumpled but look at the printing. All lower case, and I love the way it’s faded. Adds to the handcrafted feel, I think!


Oh there was a sticker too, which so matched the first ball to come tumbling out.


With more closely following it…..


tip, tip, tip….


to a rainbow mound….


which was in need of a sort out.  One of each colour. Round and round…


And look at the branding.  Creative cotton.


Already to create.  I’m inspired….. I’m off…… Hook at the ready…. Byeee!
