Wedding Anniversary

On the 11th April it was our Wedding Anniversary and this year we decided not to do anything in particular just yet. All possible babysitters were busy so we have put any meal etc off for the moment. We have also been busy with things around the house too.

However we did go into Waterstones in Truro and Hubby treated me to these:

There some lovely ideas here which could be used as starting points for your own ideas.

I also got this book too. I have tried wet felting with Year 7 at school and they enjoyed it. Year 10 have felting on their syllabus so I thought this might give me some ideas and methods that would work well. Some lovely pictures and instructions to follow.

I also got the Amy Butler "In Stitches" book but I can not find the picture for it! I read that in bed last night and I have many items that I want to try out. Firstly I must finish Sophie's new curtains which I hope to have to show you tomorrow. I felt to awful yesterday that I did not go to my sewing group so the quilt is in one bag and the wadding is still sitting in another so no progress there at the moment. Sophie has a friend coming over to play in about 45 mins and the weather is much brighter today for them. Hubby is off to Dartmouth to do a stability test on a boat and I need to do some more marking. So a busy day ahead of me I think.

Has anyone made anything from the books above at all? What did you make and how did it turn out?

Well have a great day, I am off to decided which of the above to do first.

Love the books.... from the Bend the Rules Sewing I've made the strip quilt, the little clutch style pouch, and the pleated beauty bag. They worked out well. I've made the table mats out of In-Stitches, the scarf, the clutch bag (for a friend) and I made a smaller version of the pillow with the bobbles for my daughters bedroom. Both books are lovely. I haven't seen the felting book before but it looks like a great deal of fun. Hopefully we'll hear more about your own adventures with these books soon.
