Wooly Bits Club

I'm a member of the Quilted Crow Wooly Bits Club.  A new parcel arrived yesterday


and I had to make it straight away. 


Just need to find somewhere in Melbourne to buy crushed walnut shells - any ideas?


FABULOUS FREE STUFF
Some links to super cute pincushion patterns today.
A funny one from All Free Sewing.  Many thanks.
Or maybe this sweet one....from the same place.  Huge thanks to all involved at All Free Sewing
And my very favourite...super cute
...a fabulous free pattern at Craft Passion. Enormous thanks to Joanne.

  1. Isn't it thrilling when a new project comes together like that - right time, right fabric, right mood. I know that The Home Patch sells crushed walnuts, but you'd have to wait for the mail. Those pincushions are so cute, especially the mother and baby turtle, but I must resist.

  2. CUTE ideas!!! Here in the states the crushed walnut shells are sold as "lizard or bird" cage litter in the pet stores. Good luck in the hunt.

  3. Walnut shells try pet shops, apparently they use them for lizard/snake litter

  4. Hi Mel. Mrs Martin's Quilt Shop in Emerald has recently stocked the crushed walnut shells as does The Home Patch in Bathurst and both do the mail order thing. Hugs

  14. Oh I am drooling over that wool , it looks wonderful . As for the crushed walnuts I just bought walnuts in the shell , ate the walnuts and crushed the shells :-), maybe too much work but they say pet stores have them . The turtle is simply too cute , have to go fetch that pattern , thanks Melody.

  16. I tried pet shops in Adelaide and they had NEVER heard of walnut shells as pet litter! I gave up and rang Hatched and Patched, Bathurst and got them mail order, but that was at least a year ago. Glad to see re other comments that some Melb shops are getting them in...will be on the look out when I visit next! Love love love the turtle, defiantly going to try and make one, fried egg is cute and original also, thanks for sharing!
