Woolly Finds...

I haven't been up to much the last couple of days, been busy and really, really tired.

After a cancellation of plans for today we decided to have a drive up to our favourite little charity shop in Shap. This is one of the very few charity shops in our area which hasn't been hit by 'Tourist Fever'  (in other words...tourist prices!!) It's run by some little old ladies who sit around, drink tea and catch up on all the village gossip with their mates! It's quite amusing to listen too at times! They are lovely and they charge peanuts (compared to other charity shops) so we always make a special effort to take our bits up there when we need to and of course have a good rummage around too. Then we went on up to Penrith for lunch and charity shop hunting there. Just in the last shop we were just about to walk out of the door when I spotted a basket full of wool. There were loads of really unusual colours and almost whole packs so of course we just had to buy the whole lot!! Not sure what we are going to do with it all but as my hubby always says 'it will come in handy one day'!! So a successful day after all.

I'm trying to get some sheepy things made at the moment but they seem to be taking forever as I just can't get the oomph to do much in the evenings, hopefully my energy will return very soon!!
