Oh YUMMMM! I LOVE Cath Kidston!
Isn't it just sooo happy?
I searched for the "SEW" book for my daughter for Christmas....yep, she's a big fan too!
I actually ended up ordering it from England. Whew, that shipping'll kill 'ya! So, as long as I'm paying that dasterly shipping, I might as well order two, right?
So I ordered one for me too! :-)
It actually came with a little smidge of fabric to make that little tote on the front cover.
Gotta love that!
My sweet daughter couldn't leave it at that, of course......so she ordered MAKE! too.....
Did she order one for me? Nah.........none for her Mama! :-(
That's perfectly OK with me.....I want her to SAVE her money....(hear me honey??)
So many cute ideas AND patterns in both of them.
I have an old upholstered chair.......black tapestry. I couldn't bear to part with it because it was my Mum's.........it's in my sewing room. It looks soooooo horrible in there...it doesn't match anything!
But, I've been moving things from the den to start the re-do there and that's the ONLY place it would fit. Remember, the Cottage is eensie beensie!
I bought fabric in a black and ivory ticking to re-do the curtains and some other things in there, trying to tie the whole thing together........I haven't even cut anything out yet and already I HATE it all. How can I be tired of something I haven't even made yet? Crazy. It's just not happy enough for my taste!
So, I've decided I'm going to slipcover that little chair. (It's a wing chair and I've never tackled one before). And then..............it's going to be cheery and Cath Kidston Style!
I can hardly wait. I think I'd love to be in there if it's all bright and cutsie, right?
Just one more thing on my agenda of things I need to accomplish. YIKES!
As always, more projects than time.
Now, my sweet and wonderful girlies.......I'm gearing up for my one year anniversary of blogging.
I actually signed up for my account months before I blogged. I had to think about it for a bit, you know. :-)
A whole year?
Yep, that deserves a little celebration.
So be watching Saturday......I'm thinking a giveaway is in order.
Big hugs to you dear ones!
