Yeah, my man is home and after a couple of days settling back into 'normal' life ( well, two days or so should be enough *wink*),I couldn't wait to take him and his piece of plastic shopping. So, with the dogs deposited at our daughters place we headed off over the tail end of the Alps.
You know we live in one of the most beautiful countries and during winter the snow just puts the icing on top.
After a brief stop with family we finally made it to the motel and began writing our plan of attack for a day or so of retail therapy. Here you need to realise that I have a very organised, but obliging husband, so a list was made.
The following morning after a hearty breakfast the 'sat nav' was loaded with the address of an embroidery shop I just HAD to visit. DH, armed with his newspaper sat in the car and allowed myself and the card loose in the shop (what a sweetie). So, here is just a wee peek at future projects, what I haven't included is the web order of an awful lot of floss that I sent ahead.
Well, a girl has to be well stocked doesn't she?
Next on the sat nav was a quick trip to get a variety of cording and ribbons . I just love using velvet ribbon for finishing mini pillows and pin cushions and really struggle to find any on our side of the country.
A few other places were visited mostly so that DH could get some essential 'stuff' that only DH knows why is essential.
Next is a really special bit, but as I've rabbited on long enough I'll save that for the next post, in the meantime here's another pic of the icing on the cake
The stitching accessory I didn't know I needed!
