Just before the Christmas holidays, I popped into my local library
and borrowed some books..
I was delighted to find a copy of the Liberty Book of Home Sewing -
I am only the second person to borrow it!
It has some beautiful projects for practical items,
I have fallen for a lovely rose inspired cushion which I will just have to have a go at making.
I have always wanted to learn to crochet, so I borrowed a couple of crochet books aswell!
After a quick flick through the books,
I think the 'Super Cute' one will have to wait until I have grasped the basics first!
On Christmas Eve the post man brought a lovely package of fabric - all the way from the USA!
I had won one of Laurie Wisbrun's 12 days of goodies giveaway, 8 fat quarters of her new fabric line 'Modern Whimsy' - its absolutely gorgeous and 100% organic! Those colours, along with the sheep and the rabbits are just screaming SPRING at me!
Anyone know any good crochet themed blogs?
Beginners standard of course!
