Then I popped into our local electronics shop. I love it in there. All manner of gadgets and tools. I've got a deadhead solder tip on one of my irons so I wanted to get a replacement, and some more solder. I've pretty much run out. Anyway, to fit my iron, I could only find a pack of three tips which would have cost me a tenner. Yet, here there was on special offer, a brand new 30 watt iron on special offer for £2.99!!! What a bargain! I grabbed that up straight away, plus a pack of silver solder and some 16 gauge (very thick) copper wire coated with lovely deep pink enamel - hee hee! I love blokey shops! Can't wait to play with them. The iron and wire that is, not the blokeys. Then I popped into Hobbycraft for some ribbon and a ball of undyed wool.
It's not totally dry yet, but when it is, I'll wind it into a ball and admire it until I decide what I'm going to knit (or crochet) with it.
I've also edged the bottom of the bag with this very cute picot edging.
Love it! Ever made something that you think you're going to be reluctant to give up? I think this bag will be one of those items.
Tomorrow M and I will be heading towards the coast for our May Day Sea ritual. Hopefully it'll be a nice day. We'll have to get up early though because there is basically one road on our route to the coast and if it's a nice day, plenty of other people'll have the same idea. We're only going for the day, but I desperately need to 'see the sea'. Is this because I'm a water sign do you think?
