Look! I've just received a most exciting belated birthday gift from my mother-in-law. I've had these two on my Amazon wishlist for some time, and have seen some lovely projects made up from both on flickr and in blog posts. They're my new bedtime reading (time during the day to browse books is rare with my 4 and 2 year old around!). What a great gift - my mother-in-law obviously knows me very well. What's more, apparently there's another book still to come, so I am going to be on the lookout for the postman over the coming days!
It's been gloriously sunny here over the past week. This weekend was spent outdoors - our patio doors are flung open and the children have just been roaming happily in the back garden. Yesterday saw the paddling pool being brought out for the first time this year, and two very excited children leaping around in it. Needless to say, we all got very wet! I also managed to do a bit of sewing here and there during the day and evening. More bits and pieces for the WeMake craft fair I'm taking part in, in Covent Garden on Sunday June 21st.
More pencil cases and coin purses in cute Japanese fabrics. All done, just in need of a press! I'm finding it a little alarming how quickly the weeks are passing, with so much sewing left to do. I have a sort of waking nightmare where I'm standing in front of a table with just two items on it and everyone walking straight past! Luckily, I am sharing with the lovely Clothcat, so hopefully between us we can fill a table.
Off now to water the plants with my little boy. There's still time to enter my giveaway for a clutch bag made in Amy Butler prints, for anyone who's interested! You have until midnight tonight, UK time.
