Retail Therapy

It really does work wonders! I took up some pants for a friend I used to work with (boy is she short!) and she insisted on paying me. I would have done it for the love, but she pointed out it was a good deal for both of us- it was going to cost $25 a pair to get them done by a so called “seamstress”. So armed with $30 I headed to town yesterday to visit my favourite stores, and got a little something from each, leaving enough for a cup of herbal tea at the end of it all.

 Some cotton yarn from my (snort) LYS which is currently becoming a hybrid of this and this, some air dry clay to put some of my ideas into practise from a fabulous art store, some 6 inch squares of japanese cotton fabrics from Cherry Blossom and a piece of brown linen form the remnant bin at the fabric store.

I spent a lot of time in all the shops stroking the wares (primarily the yarn store-how easy it would have been to blow the whole budget on one ball of mohair!), picking things up and generally having a good look around. It was lovely to have a few hours to mull things over in peace, choosing just the right things to spend a few dollars on.
