I’m still flitting from project to project but I knuckled down last week and completed some of the overdue re-stocking, starting with a new batch of cashmere bears.
I love these and I always seem to be down to my last one
horror of horrors (insert Psycho style scream here), I have now cut into my last batch of this gorgeous wool/cashmere mix fabric. I so regret not buying every last meter, but there’s enough to make quite a few bears yet and then I’ll have to see if I can source something similar.
I also mentioned a while back that I’ve had a couple of awards and like a naughty blogger, realise I haven’t said thank you yet, tut tut.
Mia was very kind to pass along the
award, which is for crafty-blogs which have less than 300 readers, to encourage more and more people to visit you and see your handmades. Such a lovely idea and coming from one of my favourite blog friends a double pleasure, thank you Mia.
I was also passed along the ‘Stylish Blogger Award’ from Colette , many thanks Colette (again, a lovely blog so do pop over for a visit and Colette has a great Etsy, to be found here, I might be slightly in love with the cherry silk and lace Ella bag). I should be listing seven interesting things about myself before passing along, but as I’ve been very lucky to have this challenge before, I’m having a bit of a block so I need to think for a while (let’s face it, obviously I’m just very dull ;)).
On a slightly random note, we have just returned from Bluewater where I was yet again fascinated by this
the All Saints shop with it’s (at least) 200 antique sewing machines in the window. Sorry for the hastily taken iphoto image but I was being dragged along by small boys at the time
I especially like this one. I think it’s kind of a cool display, but at the same time I feel sad for all those unused/unloved machines, I want to take them home and admire them individually.
As my own version, which came from my Gran and was the first machine I learnt to sew on is frequently moaned about for taking up space, goodness knows what I’d do with another 200 (besides, I’m not sure ram-raiding the All Saints store for it’s window display would go down very well).
A little Sunday randomness there, now back to watching the Scooby Doo Movie with the boys 🙂
