I will sit right down, waiting for the gift of sound and vision

 Hello,
just a little update!
This is a great book.   If you embroider or just starting out, this is the only book you will need.  Full of fabulous inspiration and comprehensive instructions in every kind of hand and machine embroidery stitch and technique.

 There is one of my purses in there too.
 My old blogging friend kaylacoo has a very lovely feature.
 and the amazing work of tinctory is featured too, along with many others.


 You can buy the book direct from Sophie and perhaps ask her to sign it :)   I purchased the paperback version.   Thanks to LynnHolland for telling me it was published.

Life has been on hold since booking Selvedge Fair.  It's a two day Fair, as you probs know, but I am just exhibiting on the Saturday.   I arranged a  mock up today...phew, I've done as much as I can now.
 I bought a pot of Snakeshead Fritillary for the stand...their beautiful flowers are a sight to see and everytime I see one, I think of Charles Rennie Macintosh's stunning artwork.( UniversityofGlasgow )
So, here are a few things I am taking with me.
Now, this little tin promises relief from indigestion, heartburn, flatulence and acidity...not so sure the contents would be able to help now...



and another little tin.

 girls with long ears...

more wall hangings...




So that just about winds me up for today,
thank you so much for stopping by. x

When you get to this stage you wish you were set up and ready to go. I hope you have an amazing time. Your mock up looks lovely and the snakehead fritillaria is gorgeous, I have a pot in our garden. they remind me of Charles R. Mckintosh too. I love your new wall hangings just perfect. Congratulations on the book entry, that looks a good reference book.
