A bit of forwarding thinking.....

 Yesterday I had a trip out with my Sunnybank Craft Club partner in crime Susan.  We had a voucher for 25% off at Hobbycraft so we thought we would see if there was anything we could get for future sessions.
We found this little assortment, all very cheap to start with and then with the discount even better.
Of course we had to buy one or two bits for ourselves and this lovely pack of thick papers for making boxes with came in really cheap as there was an extra 10% off as the cover had fallen off the front.  I am sharing it with friends Susan and Ruth.
This is me getting organised.  This PRYM set of stacking boxes can be added to when you need more and they come in two different depths.  I do know that DUNELM stores sell them as well and also the internet.
Added to my Coton Broderer threads to use on my ALCHEMY online course. We are into week 6 or 7 now and I need to pull my finger out a bit and get some work done.  I need to clear up in my studio first. Thats tomorrows job.

All in all a good day, rounded off with lunch in the lovely cafe in Dunelm next door to Hobbycraft in Bolton, Lancashire.  The girls are really nice in there and the food was good to, if you are in that area.


  1. Hmmm, my craft study area is in the same state but I just leave it and sit in another room playing with my yarns... but I will do it.

    Hobbycraft have a great 3 for 2 on yarns too Lynn..

    I really must get on to doing some papaercraft.. you make it look so beuatiful and easy.. perhaps in the summer time eh xxxx

  2. Hi Lynn, you got some great bargains there, especially those papers. I went to Hobby Craft and got some Easter goodies for the Grandchildren at fabulous prices, even though I did not have the discount this time, but still great value. Hugs, Anne x

  3. Well I never knew about the cafe and have been in that Dunelm a few times. Some good bargains there, especially the Prym boxes - had my eye on those for a while, a friend takes the big one to our craft group.
    Have a good weekend,
    Ann B

  4. Fine goodies there Lynn. I've never seen nor heard of the Prym boxes. It seems like a good combination idea. I must look them up. Those eggs will be lovely when they're decorated and that paper looks gorgeous :0) Mo xx
