We returned home from holidays recently to find a rather large pile of mail waiting for us, a significant part of which was a very interesting envelope about the right size for a pin cushion! I was rather delighted to discover a lovely specimen inside, handstitched very impressively by Michelle. Thank you, Michelle, and thank you Kate for organising a great swap!
This very cool pattern by Jodie of Ric-Rac also appeared in my letterbox recently, from Justine of MixTape. I won it simply because I read this great crafty zine! How lucky am I!? It really is a very good magazine, you should read it, too!
And last but not least, this lovely necklace was a gift from my husband for our wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago. It was made by Olivia of un jardin de hilo, who does some really amazing crochet, and makes some lovely jewelry, too! I possibly dropped a very big hint by emailing him the link to the item in her Etsy shop, but I'm very, very chuffed with it!
