There is many reasons why I love blogging, both writing my own blog but also reading others. I am often inspired by the blogs I read - they provide inspiration and one of these is Val's. Val is a sewer, she makes beautiful clothes, she also does embroidery, lace work, crocheting... and she has inspired me to do more with my hands and as a result I have decided to make as many gifts this years as I can, rather than buying them.
So yesterday while DH was on the computer I visited one of my favourite stores - Spotlight. This shop sells anything to do with crafts, sewing and fabrics so as you can guess I had a wonderful hour wandering around. I bought 6 pieces of fabric (see below), quite a few metres of lace and various embellishments and I can't wait to get started.
The blue and white is just so pretty, I could imagine all as little sun dresses - I better learn to sew before I have any granddaughters!
The strawberry fabric was so cute!
I am a fan of lace and love to buy it. I always buy far more than I need as it comes in useful in many crafts, including card-making and scrape-booking.
And my first project . . . well you will need to wait, but it involves these!!!
So thanks Val for inspiring me to become "crafty" again!!
