They didn't have my preferred DMC threads but they did have ones that correspond with DMC so I decided to get them for this project. They are easy to get if I need more. I just have to remember their corresponding DMC # before starting any project.
I always like to put whisperweft stabiliser on the back of my stitchery and applique blocks. It helps with the stitching tension and hides the threads at the back as well but the owner at the local patchwork shop had no idea what whisperweft was and therefore did not sell it. I thought I might order it on line but really I need to find it here, locally. This was one of the reasons I didn't start this project. The other reason is that I forgot to buy needles! doh!
Thursday gave me a chance to look for whisperweft as we had to go into Hobart to get the car serviced which meant lots of shopping time and lunch with my nearest and dearest. We had lunch at one of our favourite eateries on the Elizabeth Street Pier, Fish Frenzy, flanked by a couple of lovely replica sailing ships

Needles are no longer a problem because I am pleased to say that I am slowly finding the things I need in my sewing space as I open more boxes. Some things are more of a priority than others......for instance, I was ever so pleased to find these

So my friends, that is all that is happening here at Bits 'n Bobs but if you would like to catch up with my other news then head over to Cath@Home - I have something cooking in my kitchen today and it smells divine!
