This weekend Crochet Widower had a rare Saturday off, so we jumped in to the car and headed over to Mostyn to have a look at Abakhan’s warehouse sale. The queue was rather long and it took an hour just to get in to teh warehouse, so The Hellions had an ice-cream and got their faces painted.
Once I was in, I had sent Crochet Widower and The Hellions to the play area out of my way, I struggled, I struggled to fill a £5 bag with fabric I liked, I struggled to find trimmings I would ever use, I struggled to find one single thing I could think of a use for, but OK this was a sale and everything was extremely reduced so it’s not going to be the most popular of stuff and I don’t have any sewing projects in mind and we all know I can’t feed stash.
But I do love yarn so I popped over to the yarn barn and didn’t feel compelled to buy any yarn, I was just so uninspired by the whole lot. Now, I am not sure if this is a “selection” issue or just that my crojo is missing but I couldn’t see one thing made from any of the yarn, they have a large enough selection but for all that I have five projects in my head at the moment nothing felt right,
So I gave up, with a quick pass through the hobby section for CE info about an idea I am having (that may not need CE testing but it pays to be prepared) we headed out to Llandudno beach, it took a while but The Hellions swept away all of my disappointment (I think it’s me I was disappointed in) and after playing in the see, spotting jellyfish, and heart shaped worm poo, we all had ice-cream and with the promise of going back with swimming costumes soon we went in search of food while The Hellions fell asleep in the car.
