Yesterday I ventured out to the fabric store with my wife. I had been in this place several times before but never really walked it aisle to aisle. Why would I? Maybe because it contains treasure, and lots of it.
First off I located granny grating. Nothing new right, find it at Wal-Mart whenever I need another sheet of it. Well there were 4 different sizes of grid, and one of those has round holes and looks like plating. I picked up 5 sheets of it, the plating coming in a 2 pack. I have no idea what I am going to do with any of this yet, but I am sure the uses are endless.
Next was the floral section. I have rolls of floral wire, wrap, and pins. Here I found double thick wire already colored other than green, as well as a very thick wire that is wrapped with paper and it immediately made me think of a rope bridge or ladders.
In the candy section I found foot long lollie pop sticks. normally I use kebob sticks for posts and poles, but they don't bend properly, normally cracking and showing the wood grain. An aisle over at the end of the beads was a package of beads in a bottle. This product is designed for dazzling up shirts and one of the packages was all metallic colors, it hit the cart so fast I think it broke the sound barrier.
Lastly into the jewelry tools. Here I grabbed a new sprue cutter, this one with a 22 degree angle, and a small punch set. All in all I think I did well and my Orks are going to appreciate the suffering I had to endure at a girlie store.
