Cath Kidston. All about needlepoint and cross stitch.
This first lot from a friend is a set of books by Cath Kidston. Each book is about a different technique and there is an added bonus of a bag, cut out and ready to make. I want to try them all RIGHT NOW.
A needlepoint project which would be quite useful as I lose glasses cases regularly.
Now we're talking. How to use up some of my surplus fabrics.
A bag that would be fun to make.
This combines two of my favourites: patchwork and bag making.
All sorts of easy sewing projects.
An beautiful, quilted hot water bottle cover. Perfect for the current weather.
An added bonus.
A gift from my daughter who knows how much I love this sort of thing.
Inspired by paste jewellery of the 1950's,
I am not a toy maker, but I could succumb to this one.
Ordinary, household things look beautiful in this book.
Finally, 'Homemade Gifts Vintage Style' by Sarah Moore, who is currently featured in 'Country Living' Magazine, where she has been showing how to make beautiful things. I have been following her series avidly as I am lucky enough to have a subscription to the magazine. The book includes cushions to corsages and Valentines projects to Christmas decorations.
Another captivating cover
Who wouldn't want a Linen Cupboard that looks like this.
