and some new fabrics and threads
From there we headed to Brunswick Street, an artist's haven. We did buy art materials, not just fabric. Neil Wallace and Melbourne Etching Supplies relieved us of some more cash, papers, sketch books etc.
We then discovered another fabulous shop 'Precious Pearl' for fleece, wool and fabric. I bought some lovely sari silk fabric remnants and gorgeous fleece.

As if all this shopping wasn't enough I then went to Sassafras in the hills, near where I live, the next day and bought these beautiful tea tins. Mine won't ever see tea though, they're going to be the centres of some more of my yo-yos.
I've also been putting together button and fabric kits for the Journal workshop I'm teaching here
I've been dyeing doilies
and buttons and beads. I'm amazed how bright the buttons turned out, they were all white to start with.
and these are fabric pages for my latest journal, this one's an order
Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments in my previous post, now off to do more pages.
