On the shelf next to her are these adorable little snails. The pattern was sent to me by my dear friend Iris. Check out her blog and see her designs.
I purchased this Sarah Lawrence book after a fellow crafter brought it to our class a couple of weeks ago. I thought that the brooches were so much fun and I have a large selection of beads. I bought the faces direct from Sarah's website, www.craftynotions.com. She also has an article in the June/July edition of Stitch Magazine that is published by the Embroiderers Guild.
Lastly, having made Isabel a bag a while ago, I had this fabric and decided to make one for myself. It isn't quite finished yet but I wam pleased with it so far.
Finally, on the subject of bags. You may have caught a glimpse of this in the picture above.. yes it is the next design in the Tesco/Kidston range..I know, fab isn't it and who knew that there were more to come?! I couldn't believe my eyes when I went into my local store and saw it. And, guess what..there are at least another 2 coming in October.!!!!!!!!!! Yippeeeee!
How can you choose between them, they are all so bloomin gorgeous!!
Furthermore, LK Bennett have brought out this little stunner, which I absolutely love and it is free with this months Instyle Magazine..Yep it's free and fab and just the right size for my knitting. I am in bag heaven at the moment..who else shares my passion?
I will end on this happy note and advise you to go to Tesco now, this minute, 24 hour shopping darlings, because numbers of each design are limited and when they are gone, they are gone, so don't tell yourself that you will get it next week, because the chances are I will have bought them all up!
