..and it ended at "Wonderwool Wales"...

...my week that is!

I don't seem to have had much time to stitch since the last posting...

...what with getting to grips with a new music composition program ....

...in order to produce a piece ready for choir on Tuesday...

..that DID actually get done (YEY!)

Then, packing loads of boxes and bags to take to Stretton Sugwas for a workshop on Thursday..

...and dashing back to Merthyr to reherse with the WNO the same evening....

...then dashing over to Ebbw Vale to catch up on stock at Replay before it closes it's scrap department next week....

(got some lovely bits of cotton and silk fabrics -again!)

and then up to Builth Wells for "Wonderwool Wales" yesterday....

...where, of course, I just couldn't resist some of the gorgeous goodies on sale!


Some beautiful dyed Teeswater locks...



A small Thai embroidered bag...



Some Miao embroidery...with the tiniest cross-stitching I've ever seen!




Indigo shibori fabrics...



Wooden print bocks...



..and a Khazak pendant with Lapis Lazuli inserts.




I'm feeling absolutely done-in....

...but delightfully happy! :-)))))

What a delightful shopping!
That cross-stitching must have left a blind Miao woman behind.
Love the stamps. We'll see what you will make out of them.

What treasures...The stamps look like a lot of fun and the indigo shibori is beautiful.
Fabulous!

Yes Lorna...Wonderwool is Wonderful!

...and Eva..

I'm sure you're right about the Miao woman...

...the stitches are so small, I could only see them with a magnifying glass...

..and the stamps will be fun.

So will the indigo shibori...:-)
