Tuesday Treat

No 57

This week’s Tuesday Treat is a massive hint for anyone who wants to buy me a present! It’s The Shop at Number 57. I discovered them through Domesticali who was making one of their embroidery kits at Needles & Natter one week. Naturally I had to go & explore what other lovely things they had for sale! I love the look of the website and I could easily buy all of the products! I’d love to have a go at one of their cross stitch kits sometime, which I think are really funky. I love the idea of stitching white thread onto black. It looks so effective.

I also love the fact that they have vintage products and upcycled products for sale too. Go and have a look – trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

The Joy of Being Crafty

The Joy of Being Crafty

The joy of a new crafty project. I cannot describe the feeling I get when I buy some bits & pieces to make something new. The potential success. The new skills. The end result. The oooing & ahing that will (hopefully) occur. This is what I plan will happen with these little bits that I picked up from Hobbycraft on Friday evening.

The Joy of Being CraftyThe Easter embroidery kit is for an Easter card that I plan to sew for my Granny. She’ll love it & keep it for ever! The other bits are for some jewellery that I plan to make. I’m not quite sure what yet, but I bought some bits to make earrings & I know how to make fasteners from the wire for bracelets & necklaces so sky’s the limit with these. The blue button isn’t for anything specific, but I just couldn’t resist it! I have a button addiction. (More on that in future posts!)

So you will have to check back in a few weeks to see how I’m getting on. Pics will definitely follow!
