My shortlist is therefore as follows:
1. I definitely want to make some of these:
2. I might want to try and get some wool for my own version of this:
I definitely want to make this but perhaps am better off getting the wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills or Garnstudio or similar - they seem best value and this might be a bit bulky to bring home?
3. Maybe some crochet cotton and beads for some of these:
Last craft fair I got the crochet flower bracelet kit that I made for a Issy a little while ago and she loved it, so this might be a nice thing to make for her and her friends perhaps.
4. Definitely some dress fabric shopping - top of the list is jersey ruffle to make a maxi skirt, then also nice linen, denim, stretch knits etc.
That seems like a restrained list to me - one for each of my hobbies (quilting, crochet, knitting and sewing) though clearly item 4 has more than one purchase in it :)
I also want to look at yo-yo makers (have seen a few cool things made of or partly with yo yos recently), templates and books. I saw a post about Knook (knitting with crochet hooks) which was intriguing! I might have to look at bits and bobs too, like eyes for animals as they are well expensive here. Perhaps that's enough?!!!
