I was talking to a fellow charity crocheter the other day and she was telling me about the beautiful wool she had bought on holiday last summer but not used yet. We went on to discuss our different craft supply treasure hoards – the items that we love to acquire but do not necessarily use (soon).
I realised as we chatted that, even though I crochet a lot, yarn is not an item that I covet. Which does not mean I do not have a treasure hoard as the shelves in my crafty space show
on just this sample are - top shelf has embroidery threads; below that sticky tape and below that lots of beads and some coloured card then on the right plenty of pens and my pile of washi tape, and on the bottom shelf some cotton yarn and more pens.
Looking at it all and knowing what is on the rest of the shelves and in my drawers, and the digi supplies on my hard drive - I think that colour is what I buy and hoard – pens and washi tape being the current focus but in the past beads and paper have dominated.
What about you? Which crafty items do you find irresistible?
