Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We certainly did!

Today was the last day of trading at Precious Purl for 2010!
We will only be open on Saturday 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th January from 11-5pm, while we take a break.
If you are desperately in need of some supplies for Summer Crafting or are visiting Melbourne from interstate and not able to get to Precious Purl on Saturdays, then give me a call on 0423 514 668 and you may be able to persuade me to be at the shop on some other day!! Maybe!

I am going to be doing lots of enjoying of my sister's lovely garden/pool in the Central Highlands area of Victoria. We have our caravan set up in this lush and private caravan park!

Lots of family members to enjoy this break with us and plenty of reading, eating, talking, knitting, shopping, swimming, walking, bike riding and sleeping to come. That's in between Mr Purly and I, tag teaming to give Insulin injections to our recently diagnosed, diabetic Burmese cat. She is much loved and absolutely worth the time and petrol spent to and froing!
Hope your holidays are memorable! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my blog readers and to all our lovely customers at Precious Purl!

Button Obsession!

This "Button Obsessive" has been lusting after the gorgeous button jewellery that I spotted the wonderful Maggie Beer wearing on Masterchef this year. That "eagle" eye had also noticed Maggie wearing "buttons" back in  "The Cook and the Chef "days on the ABC!
Well I finally tracked down the clever designer and maker - Kellie Christie of Brisbane and have persuaded her to supply Precious Purl with some lovely pieces just in time for Christmas.

Sorry, the Red, Black and White necklace has already been SOLD, but there are some other gorgeous ones to choose from and they are very reasonably priced.

Some very cute button brooches also.

Something to appeal to any button lover or anyone who loves a fun necklace or just Colour!

Please check my previous post that details our Holiday Trading hours and remember our online Sale continues until 31st December.
