With a super busy week, full of various appointments, I’ve decided not to roll the dice this week. I’m sure I’ll find lots of other crafty things to keep me busy in any spare time I have available. We had to take a trip to Porirua yesterday and after we had done what we needed to do, went to visit Pete’s Emporium. This shop sells all sorts of things, but I love it for the craft area – you are sure to find what you are looking for here, and at very reasonable prices too.
Gidday Pete, nice to be back again
I was after some cord for the little draw string bags I’ve been making for the charity Foster Hope. Children in foster care use the bags to put their toiletries or sometimes use them for pens and pencils. Armed with some fabric for the next lots of bags, I went to see if I could match some cords. I found three out of four colours I was after, so I’m pleased with that.
These will do nicely
And here is a selection of cords available. There were also stands full of buttons, lace, ric rac, ribbon, a veritable Aladdin's Cave of treasure! You could spend such a long time here just checking the haberdashery selections.
Cords in all colours
There was also a good selection of quilting fabrics, but with Robin hovering nearby, I didn't have time to check them out. And I really only like to buy fabric with a project in mind these days. But I did pick up a couple of family birthday gifts, and Robin bought a new flag to fly on his flag pole, so he was happy too.
