Ever since I saw the Sajou
Mini Sewing Set on Su
's blog I knew that I had to have it too! Those tiny 'Monster' scissors called out to me "Buy me, Buy me" so as I did not spend too much at the Knitting and Stitching Show I decided to treat myself. The package arrived this morning (quick shipping from Susan at Hanging by a Thread
) and it is even more delightful than the pictures show.
I also received a package from The Sampler Guild
with a fat quarter of 36ct Puck Elne of Lynnyn fabric. You can see just see a peek of this fabric under the scissors (click on the picture for a close-up view). It's a lovely shade of hand-dyed linen and TSG website states that Puck is 'another tea-dyed linen but with a beautiful sandy cast' - it is
beautiful - trust me!
I am ashamed to admit that I did not pick up a needle and thread yesterday as I made the most of the weather and went out into the garden with my latest book. It's called 'True Evil' by Greg Iles and is a gripping thriller about "a divorce attorney who has a cluster of clients whose spouses have all conveniently died apparently of natural causes ...". Well worth reading.
Nearly forgot, for those of you looking for a new look to your blog, I came across a website at the weekend here
which has some extremely pretty templates. I could have saved myself an awful lot of work if I had discovered it sooner but I'm pleased with my new look and with a bit more 'tweaking' it will be just right.
Thanks for visiting
