My first little purchases were some gorgeous new yarns for some crochet and felting projects.
I bought some coloured wire from the bead shop.
I have wanted to have a try at crocheting with wire for a while now. I found a lady called Yael from Israel making the most beautiful crochet wire jewellery and art.
Isn't it stunning? I have had a little play but it is a lot harder than using yarn. Her shop on Etsy, called Yoola, sells tutorials, as well as her work.
I then found some more stunning yarn at the other wool shop. It is a wool, alpaca and silk mix and will be great for felting projects as well as a little crochet.
It was an absolute bargain. It was supposed to be £10.00 a skein but 5 skeins were on offer for £15.00! I haven't crocheted a wearable item yet and there is so much of this that it seems a shame not to make something a bit larger.
One last buy (not from St.Ives), some fabric for some Easter bunting for the garden.
I love the bright colours, flowers and stripes. There should be enough left over for some other projects too.
As well as being very spoilt, I took the opportunity to spoil my Mum. She has a Pandora bracelet and loves the beads. I found Argos have earrings on which you can put small beads so we bought her a set of earrings and many beads! She is a real magpie and loves her bling!
Hope you had a lovely Mother's Day too.
