no crafty items to share today, I'm afraid ... I've been busy with house related stuff and sewing the hems of our new curtains seems to be the only craft related thing I'll be doing this week. The gas installation seems to be taking forever along with the rest of the things we need to finally make the move. We already have some budget estimates for that, by the way, and I had no idea that to hire a moving company would be so expensive.
Anyway, what I really wanted to share were a few books and magazines I got recently...
This Vogue Knitting book was a gift from several friends (thank you girls ! and I really enjoyed the pucca shower gel too, of course ;) because I won a little competition a few months back (with a lot of luck, I might add). It's an amazing knitting reference book, something that I'm sure I'll use a lot in the future.
Now this is another book I had on my wish list for quite some time, so a few weeks ago I decided to order it from amazon. I love this kind of crewel embroidery, and the designs in here are all so simple yet beautiful.
And remember these ?
My back issue order arrived, and although not as inspiring as Marie Claire Idées (I'm repeating myself, I know) there are a few cute projects I would love to try out.
For some reason I got duplicate copies, so I'm giving a copy of one of these away. If you're interested just leave a comment here, and I'll make a draw during the weekend. Just a small thank you to all (crafty or not) readers that pass by here once in a while. I know I don't always have the time to reply to the comments that are made here, but I just wanted to say that I do appreciate enormously every comment made, and after reading things like this, this and this, I feel even more grateful for all the positive things that blogging has brought me.
