On Thursday I bought.....

Last week Sue, from sweetpea family, made me smile because she wrote this post explaining how she nipped into John Lewis and ended up buying 40 balls of wool, too many to hide behind the sofa or under the bed!

I'm sure quite a few of us know exactly how Sue is feeling. So I thought I would write a little confession.

On Thursday I bought.......

Yes, this was my little haul from Hobbycraft
My nearest store is in the city about 20 miles from where I live but it is also in the city where I work. This could be bad news except for the fact that it is the other side of the city, so temptation is kept at bay - phew! 

But last Thursday I had to visit a different part of our campus on the way home. Now, to be completely honest, the campus I had to visit is only a short distance from where I work and I hardly have to make a detour from my usual route home to go there but because this visit had changed my whole routine ever so slightly AND because it is the school holidays and so I don't have a tight time schedule to stick to, I decided to drive over to the other side of the city and come home via Hobbycraft. Makes complete sense doesn't it?

And what a great little selection I bought - supplies for cross stitch, crochet, sewing and stationery! There, I've made my confession and boy, does it feel good!

(the only downside was that when I got home and showed my goodies to my daughter she said she would like to go - so I guess we'll just have to make a special trip sometime....oh dear, such a shame!!!

Have a good week


  1. Hobbycraft and John Lewis are dangerous places! Enjoy your haul. CJ xx

  2. There's a Hobbycraft just outside of Sheffield but it's quite far from us so I've never been which is a good thing really because I won't be able to resist buying all sorts of crafty things from there.Have fun with your lovely selection--the crocheted birds will be great for Easter. x

  3. yes that post from Sweatpea family struck a chord with me, and this morning two balls of DB Cashmerino Aran arrived from Cucumberpatch for my mums new hat! I'm afraid to go near John Lewis in case I get too much! Your Hobbycraft haul looks fun x
