Yesterday I took pity on some of the ever growing moths and let them out of my purse. I went over to Greymouth and wandered around the shops in the pouring rain, while DH was in the dentist having 2 teeth extracted (hehe). As I stood in the needlecraft shop watching water drip down one of the walls, and thinking this was about as miserable as home, a light came on and I thought to myself instead of feeling down, put the cruddy weather to my advantage. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out, lots of rain means lots of stitching time in front of the fire :) So to celebrate this brainwave, and also to stop the looks from passerbys - as my purse looks like a pregnant cat (impatient moths) - I brought a few things. Nothing too exciting....5 reels of ribbon (on sale) and 4 skeins of variegated perle thread. The 2 FQs of quilting fabric were from a previous purchase, and will be used to make flat folds and various other finishes.
