Well the excitement of that football match, (poor Brazil), meant I didn't show you the little instant gratification I indulged in beforehand last night. Sorry.
It may be a bit 2012, but I felt like using up some of my selvedges, not that I have masses, but enough for a good rummage.
So another little needle book…
I used some lovely felt from Eternal Maker, and a little of Aneela's Hello Petal dots for the lining…
It is roughly 4" square and I am thinking will become home to all my new needles and pins for FQR.
Oh I never told you the full saga of the needles did I!?
I ordered a pack of Chenille size 24 from John Lewis. Picked them up in store and was so flabbergasted by the football sized box they came in, I didn't notice until I got home that they were a size 22. I rang Customer Services, they said I could keep them and they would send me another pack. Pack 2 arrived, um, size 22. I rang again, replacement offered. 2 days later, another pack of size 22!
So the warehouse was asked to actually check they had some 24s. They didn't. So I am getting a £15 voucher for my trouble, as well as a refund.
The replacements are already on their way from eBay.
The moral of this story… I am not entirely sure!
