Went shopping in Cirencester. yesterday afternoon. In the pouring rain of course, so the shops were fairlly quiet for a Friday afternoon. Drove through rural Wiltshire and Gloucestershire to get there. The wild flora is certainly enjoying this wet spell of weather.
Popped into the craft shop of Brewery Arts, its is still housed in the theatre, I suspect the renovation work will be finished by the end of the year, the builders seem to be making good progress. Did not buy anything there though.
Then popped along to the sewing supplies shop and really had to buy some stuff there, as you can see! Then along to the Art shop at the back of the church. Just had to buy some "Inktense " pencils to try out.
I merely purchased the basic colours of the pencils, as I wish to experiment. I know that some of my internet chums love them. So thought I ought to give them a go. Think I am also being badly led astray by Gill . (of An Elegant Sufficiency - who knows this area well!)
Now why did I purchase the fat quarters of cotton...... you may well ask............I could dye my own. -Yes I know.- but when the local hobbycraft opened I bought a bundle of bright primary colours, and last week I did buy some more dyes. So I can dye some of my own..... when I get some time.
Meanwhile some more colour inspiration for you............
Yellow - of course.
