stuff

I guess my Mum and I had more in common than I first thought... She was a hoarder, just like me. And that has been fortuitous for me as we have been wading through all the crafty things she'd kept in storage. I have been adding big time to my collection of craft supplies.

Whilst it's fun to add to what I have, it's also been a very difficult time. It's the little things really, the things she'd kept, the things she didn't. I still haven't come across my wedding dress, I hope it turns up, but...

So, I've lots of things to go through, and photograph to show you all. Keep an eye on the blog over the next couple of weeks for updates of the exciting things I've found.

Here's just a few books I've added to my collection;

And some more BUTTONS! hurrah!


There's lots of yummy fabric, currently in the wash, smocking books, knitting patterns - it's like being in craft heaven!
