The 4th of July

Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans!

My quarantine shuttles from Rita arrived yesterday. These will be going into the display case. My Honey said they are so pretty. I love it when he admires shuttles as much as I do.

Earlier in the week we took a trip down south and the family stopped off at the Aquarium of the Pacific. My eldest couldn't come with us, she had schoolwork and tests to complete. I didn't want her to feel left out so between tests we video chatted and I picked up some souvenirs for her and her fiance. I had more photos to add from that trip but I'm having issues with uploading photos right now. For now I will go back to the food prep for dinner and post again in a few days.

Daiso, again

Some recent Daiso shopping from Long Beach, California, everything here was $1.50 each:

The larger container is a large ball holder with a cutter built into the top of it. I was able to put a new ball of size 10 thread into it. Next to it is a smaller ball holder that has two tabs on top so you can wind the thread end to it. There is also a Qtip holder and some Tabi socks.

In this cute 3 compartment container I have UV RESIN! I picked up all 10 that they had in stock. I even asked if they had any more in the back or in the boxes of stock that were on the floor. Unfortunately, this was it. I also picked up some more shell flakes in a teal mix and a cream container kit to store the flakes in. They also had some resin sheets that I thought to try out.

I'm not sure if the cat sticker are paper or transparencies but they are cute so they will be incorporated into something.

In this other 3 compartment holder we have needle felting supplies. I'm fairly certain I already have this cat kit, but I purchased 2 because my youngest wanted to try her hand at making one. There's also some extra felting needles and a needle holder tool.

There's also a pen with a .28 size tip head on it in green ink and some pore cleansing gel that has absolutely nothing to do with crafting, but still useful. They carry some small skeins of yarn, sock yarn, knitting needles, and a large collection of crochet hooks. I tried looking for tatting shuttles and they do carry them, just out of stock. They only get them every other month, usually 10 packs at a time, like the resin. It's the same ones as these:
