THIS MORNING ...

.... the sun was shining ..... SO .... I went and got the parents and off to North Wales we went xx

NOW as you know I really HAVE TO get some buttons for my Aran jacket ..


well I found a few!!  I KNOW they are different sizes .. and colours BUT..



I managed to find some that fit x (the top picture is much closer to the correct colour)

.....AND Christmas is coming and I need some fabric for the backing  on a project I have in mind..


......AND if I am going to get some Christmas knitting projects done I need to start NOW..



....AND when the shade is called LIPSTICK ..  it MUST have my name on it somewhere!..



...it would have been criminal to leave it behind xx

The weather was beautiful .. so we sat outside for dinner ..



overlooking one of the MANY craft supply areas ...


.. can you see that lovely blue sky ? I LOVE Abakhan (www.abakhan.co.uk ) .... and there is some money left in my purse xx AH! When can we go back again xx lol x

Those buttons are just so lovely. It certainly looks like you're set up for the next few months with fabric and yarn too. I've never been too Abakhan but have always heard good things about it.

Hi there Diane, I hope you don't mind my comment. My wife is always ranting about your work. She has mentioned how she would like some of those cute little mice you made in your previous Blog. If you have a direct contact could I get in touch and pay you to make her some? We live in Winsford so I wouldn't mind collecting them. She would be made up! Also while im here if I could ask you add my blog to your blogroll? Kind regards

Are you having mismatched buttons? I love that effect. Lots like a great day out!

OO Abakhan. I haven't been there for quite a while. I'm coming up to Chester in October, I wonder if I can persuade the hubby to detour along the coast road
