Take a Look at This ....

Back in the days when we wore T-Shirts and sandals, ate ice cream and the temperature was in double figures, I went to the IKnit Weekender event at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London.  Amongst my purchases were some Merino Wool Tops and a book on wet felting.  This was one of my 'teach myself something new' projects for the Christmas break - which never materialised - the Project, not the break - lol.  Anyways back in November, thinking I would have a go at this over the Christmas, I was trawling the tinternet looking for a bamboo mat (a necessary tool apparently) and I found Gillian's Glad Rags - a felting (and other things wool and yarn) site, so I placed an order, which incidentally arrived the next day - how's that for service.
I've been meaning to post these piccies for a while 'cos I just had to share first off the actual packaging of the parcel - all pink and pretty - even the blokes in the office said Wow - lol ...
Then when you opened it up, these goodies were inside ....
To be fair one of the reasons why I didn't start teaching myself is because these packages look too good to open - lol. So it might be a couple of weeks before I actually have a go - but wil let you know how I get on.
Note to Sue - this does not come within the Austerity Measures - (a) because I already had some of the felting stuff and (b) the order was in November last year - lol.
Austerity Measures?  To see what I'm wittering on about - take a look here ....

Great packaging. Amused to hear about your austerity measures. I had a bit of stash for Christmas but am seriously considering not buying anything new this year as I have plenty of stuff to use up.
