A Confession

Okay, so I have a little confession to make.

I bought things. Crafty things.

But only a little bit--that's okay, right? Plus they were get-it-or-forget-it, you-won’t-see-this-again things.

First, on a rare trip to Worthing, I found it was market day, and through the drizzle I saw this gorgeous fabric:

It was just £3 per metre! I fell in love with the combination of gold with splashes of pink and purple, the velvety flock and the ethnic patterns. Gorgeous! I bought it with a bedspread in mind, but need to check how it washes first.

(Yes, I have made a mental note of that incredibly cheap market stall!)

As for the second addition to my stash, it was just something little that I’ve been lusting after for ages...

Watch faces! I’ve seriously admired some jewellery that uses old watch faces, but not known where to get them for a reasonable price. These were in a box of ‘odds and sods’ in the charity shop, and I paid £1 for them.

Now though, I’ll definitely not buy any more for my stash. Nuh-uh. No way. Not going to happen.

(I hope!)


  1. Ha ha - sounds like you couldn't pass up these deals, Kei. Love that fabric and can't wait to see what you do with the clock faces.

  2. Oh my goodness what pretty fabric. Oh here is something that I make from Cool2Craft EcoHeidi Borchers http://www.cool2craft.com/plastic-water-bottle-necklace-with-square-pendant-by-ecoheidi-borchers/. Pretty fabric, seed beads, beads, a water or pop bottle and straws!


Reading all your sweet comments makes me happy! :) I appreciate each and every one and try to reply to all that I can!
