My purchases (shown above) were all sewing notions: bodkins, crewel needles, leather thimble and, joy of joy, Truecut Grip Rings. I have been looking for the Truecut Grip Rings for the last year so that is a huge "thumbs up" for Minerva!
Upon leaving Minerva Crafts we decided to go to Clitheroe for a mooch around which began with a delicious lunch at The Emporium.
Continuing up the road we called in at Pendle Stitches where there was a Knit and Natter group meeting. The shop had an interesting selection of yarn ranges and we had an enjoyable nose around although neither of us succumbed to temptation.
As our parking time was limited we restricted ourselves to the craft-related shops so headed back down the road to Patches and Buttons. It was lovely to walk into the shop as it was so full of character: baskets of fabric, jars of buttons - a colourful sewing selection.

By now the temperature had risen even more so we decided to head back to Elizabeth's home where a bagful of variegated blue brushed double knitting yarn fell out of Elizabeth's hand into mine! (Its new home is in the boot of my car until I can find a tiny bit of space for it!)
