So, I thought I'd share this absolute blast of colour and outright cheerfulness.
It's an excerpt from a new magazine that Amy Bulter has put together, which she calls her 'Fall Look Book - Fashion Afield!' which you can download for yourself and see what it has to say. Link. You'll have to scholl down a little to find it.
Whilst I was
nosing browsing around I noticed that under 'Free Patterns' there's a button called 'Me Holiday Crafts' (that sounds so like my local dialect I felt embarassed typing it!) and listed here are some interesting projects, given that Christmas is doing that sneaky thing of creeping up behind you! There are patterns for napkins, felt stockings to hang, Snow Mum pillows, which look gorgeous, a christmas tree forest and patterns and designs for cards and bows and ...... loads of things.
Not particularly linked to yukky weather, the lack of light or to Christmas is another, link I thought I'd share. It's a free bag tutorial from ohfransson. It's called a 'Margaret Sling Bag' and I just love the shape of it. The pattern is a downloadable PDF which is great. Potentially a gift idea for some lucky person? or maybe just for yourself? 'Ohfransson' is a fantastically busy, active, and crafty blog if you haven't come across it before. Loads of inspiration to be found there.
Well, look at that! Would you believe it, it's stopped raining and the sun has come out! Perhaps now is a good time to go to the Post Office before the weather changes it's mind again.
