Loads Of Scrap

Nathaniel and I went to SAMS this morning to see what was about and to gather some goodies for Christmas presents and the like.

Almost immediately he grabbed a handbag sized marmite jar;



He carried it around all morning while I looked in all the nooks and crannies. Inside were these lovely toast shaped stencils and a marmite 'spreader' and an instruction sheet (as if good marmite loving people need any guidance)!



It was a very conservative gathering on my part. I found three pieces if beautiful fabric, one is to be a new bag for me and one is earmarked for a present for Julie (more cards have arrived this morning, thanks chaps!), some felt scraps in the most amazing colours (I think there may be some more of these in new yummy colours), some card in blue and purple with 'windows' in (can feel some Christmas cards coming on), a bundle of yummy autumnal coloured yarn (scarves and hats) and a few lengths of ribbon with stars on;


I have also managed to secure a stall at a local craft fair in a very posh private school on Saturday, good job everything is still packed from the last one!

Good luck with the craft fair.... I love the fabulous marmite jar and goodies, have just finished my martmite on toast actually. Over here in NZ they have a different version of Marmite which is sweeter than the English one and really quite YUK.... Luckily for me they now sell 'proper' marmite, but they have to call it My Mate as Marmite is already taken. Sorry about the random marmite info, I'm a wee bit obsessed I think... X
