Today, I hit the mean streets of Amsterdam to check out their sewing supplies. I hadn’t meant to. Indeed, I’d actively avoided asking people for recommendations, in order to limit my addiction. I hadn’t counted on my online enablers, who kindly gave me suggestions regardless.
What’s a girl to do? I hit the shops!
First, I visited the Monday morning market at Westerstraat. There were some great fabrics and buttons.
Then we strolled over to A. Boeken. Fortunately, this city is very compact and I love a good walk.
So you’d expect me to buy some fabric today, wouldn’t you? Not a bit of it! I’ve been over buying of late and was hit with that ennui of, Really? You honestly need another two metres?
So I didn’t spend a single penny. Who am I kidding? I treated myself to buttons instead. What would you make with these?
