Oh my! I broke my stash diet in style too. Just take a look...
Fabric from Barneveld that was marked down to only 3 euro a meter. We normally pay from 15 to 22 euro for quilt fabrics in quilt shops. Friends from the quilt group told us about this junk shop that was selling the fabric so one of my quilt friends and I decided we had to go investigate. Boy did we ever have a fun day out too!
Then I needed to start looking for unique yarn for a new lacemaking project. I have to find out if this is enough variation or perhaps I need one or two more. I would really like a brown yarn with it yet. The worse thing is that I only need a couple of meters of each skein but have to buy the entire ball of yarn.
Did I need new charts to add more WIPs to my basket??? Well the answer would be a resounding yes when you visit Annemiek's wonderful shop in Roden!!!
So I can blame Annemiek for this part. *wink*
I mean what is a girl to do when you suddenly are standing in a shop that reminds you of the shops you visited on Saturdays when you had time off work back home in America???
There were so many wonderful things to tempt me so I actually think I was quite restrained in my haul. *grins*
But most important was being able to meet Annemiek! I loved being able to talk with her and hope to go back and visit again soon. She was so nice and welcoming.
Anyone here in Holland who has not been to De Handwerk Boetiek really should not think it is too far since it is up north. Take a day out and go see the shop. You will not be sorry.
Enough choices to break the willpower of any stitcher!
Edit ~ My stash diet lasted 1 year and almost 8 full months...
