Mmmm! So many beautiful things!
This, I guess, is a natural progression from yesterday's post. Whilst I was at the Knitting and Stitching Show, my new and very exciting purchase was delivered...an embellishing machine! I am SO excited about it! I promised this as a treat to myself, and it's here at last! I can't wait to get started with it, and in honour of that, this weeks' Shopping List has uncovered some textile delights.
The fibres are beautiful, aren't they? Gorgeous colours - and great names, too! Perfect for any project. I love the fact that these jumpers and wool garments can arrive on your doorstep pre-felted, ready for use...so convenient.
For inspiration towards achieving great results, look no further than these fabulous brooches - so beautiful - and this scrumptious cushion - eyecandy for your favourite chair!
