Get thee behind me Satan !!!

Well after I spent 2 weeks sorting my workroom out and taking stuff to the Guild for the recycle table what did I do?
Yep you got it right I went and ordered more stuff from Dale at The Thread Studio.
How can I resist when she keeps buying in all the things that I just can't live without :#)).
First up were these cards of felt rope --the colours are so beautiful and I only purchase 7 of them but there are a lot more colours.
Oh and I did buy 7 --there is a lovely green one but it decided to drop onto the floor and I didn't realise until I had posted the photo here.
I can see many projects coming from these.







Next there are these lovely hand made buttons --so beautiful.







And lastly Dales latest little book--this time about what you can do with the fabulous Sari silk ribbons that she sells.

I have several bundles of the Sari silks and I could only think of a few things to make with them-but now I have plenty of ideas after reading what Dale has created.








Sorry about the flash on the book but you can get a good idea as to what the book looks like.

Love your goodies Doreen - I've seen Dale's books on her website and they are so good. I have her one on embellishing and it's full of helpful ideas. Might have to get the others.

The good thing about your purchases is, you usually use what you buy. I'm sure these things will appear in some beautiful new creations.

I have never used sari ribbons, but have always admired the beautiful shimmery colours of the ribbons I have seen online. Might just have to read that book and get some.

Oh, Doreen, this sounds so lovely and beautiful what you are describing. No wonder that you had to buy more stuff - because!! yes, because we are all the same - we love stuff.

Your goodies are really lovely, and now you had a big tidy up at least you will know where they are.

Cor! You are going to be extra busy creating some lovely things this winter. Did you enjoy your visit with Dotee Dot? Look forward to seeing what you do with some of the felt rope - the colours are mouth watering!

I love the look of Dales's book with ideas on using her sari bits.
I'll have to save my pennies and then have a nosey in her shop.
Those buttons are just gorgeous too - they seem to be the latest thing everyone's making!
Thank s Doreen for all your help too!
