WOYWW - Can you keep a secret?

I know, a mess as ever
Now I know I haven't been around for a while, but I can trust you can't I?

You see that white polythene bag on the workbench?  Well I shouldn't really have bought it.

Alvin Hall used to say, do you need it? or do you want it?  (I think you know the answer to that).

Its perfectly understandable really, I'm sure you would have done the same.... Yesterday morning saw me childfree.  So I whizzed to Machynlleth to check out Polly Polkadot stock in The Emporium,  Quilling Crafts have kindly kept an eye on my jewellery over the summer but I really need to get back in the swing of things.

Anyway, I arrived at 10, but the shop doesn't open until 10.30, so where better to shelter from the wind and rain than Wheelers Fabrics.

And I'm sure you would agree that it would have been rude to abuse their hospitality, so I felt obliged to spend a little money in there.

Unforunately I may, perhaps have paid for it from the joint account, but I'll trust you not to tell the OH (don't worry I paid cash he won't spot it on the bank statement!).

But I did make a promise before buying it ... I said I won't buy any more material until I've used this piece.

Why not take a trip over to Stamping Ground to see if anyone can have a messier desk than me, or have committed worse crimes this week!


  1. It's good to be a little bit naughty isn't it? But I bet you buy more fabric before using this piece!

  2. I love the fabric - reminds me of M's little beach hut pics she put on her Etsy site
    just in case you want a look!! x Jo

  3. Aha - another fabric fiend!! I love material and have to stop myself otherwise I'll end up with my own haberdashery shop. I've seen that beach hut material in Salisbury, it's lush :D xx

  4. Thats great fabric, really reminds me of the seaside.I am a new follower of your blog, if you have a few spare minutes please pop over and say hello I came across you via WOYWW.

  5. aw yes... we've got no money in any account, and my piggy bank is empty too, so...when I have some pennies in my purse, do I buy crafty things or...
    crafty things! Happy WOYWW

  6. I'll keep your secret, I have a few of those bags around myself!

  7. Separate bank accounts in our house (well a joint one for all the essentials) but I can sneak the odd thing in under 'food' so I know where you're coming from! Just discovered fabric and it is as bad for me as paper. Come Monday the first one shall be transformed into a bag :)
