So here are the freebies I collected on my day out yesterday; not as much as last year - that's probably just a sign of the times, but a good haul none-the-less (there was a dark chocolate KitKat too, but I seem to have eaten that!).
The ribbon, ric-rac and pom-poms I bought at £10 for the 5, which I thought was fantastic. No plans for them as yet - the pom-poms aren't as big as I am planning for the HUG and KISS, but I have plenty of time to practice with these before they are finished!
Oh, and there's the small pot of edible glitter!
As promised here's a picture of the patchwork ball so far - on looking now, without train-motion, I think I could have done a whole lot better - so I may be doing a lot of unpicking and stitching on the wrong-side, or using embroidery thread, I'm still undecided.
Today has been the lazy day I probably should have had yesterday - a bit of HUGing, grey skies and family time.
