A few days ago, I ran down to Dressew on my lunch break and bought:

an awl.

What for? Punching holes in leather, of course! Leather for…another un-postable Christmas project.

Also buttons. It took me 35 minutes to find four buttons – I was nearly lost amongst the drawers of wood, glass, horn, vegetable ivory, and plastic buttons. Button stores are definitely high on my list of favourite places, along with stationery, yarn, and book stores.

Happy November!
