I like the new broken stripe design of Kate's latest blanket. It would make a wonderful present for a new baby or I can imagine it draped over a sofa bringing a piece of modern art into a room.
On my day off yesterday I painted a new shelf unit for the shop. It will hang in the first room and house the stacks of fabric pieces I am selling in the 'to make with' area. Some people love 'bark cloth' others are searching for 1940s fabrics. I hope to have something to appeal to anyone looking for fabrics to make with. The worst bit, for me, is the pile of ironing!!
Yesterday I got an email from a UK firm selling bulk quantities of glitter. This is very good news after my unsuccessful search for nice glitter for the wedding. I do like a bit of glitter at Christmas so I'm off to order some for the 'to make with' area of Handmade Happiness.
