My new book arrived off Ebay today. Ellie and I saw this in Hobbycraft on Christmas Eve but couldnt really afford to get it so I've been looking out for it on ebay ever since.
There are some great projects in there and it has inspired me so I dont think its just for children.
Also whats really great for us lot is there is a lot of CK used in the styling of the photos.
This project is about making puppets out of old t shirts.
You can get Jersey T shirts so cheap in charity shops so I will be looking out for some in great designs - I only normally buy cotton to use in my projects and have left some great t shirts on the rack.
I love these fairy pictures - notice the CK star fabric on the lamp - lovely - might just have to paint a lamp base red after seeing this picture.
I love these beautiful pebble stones - can't help thinking that they look a lot like CK cottage.
Andrew took the kids out for a bracing walk over the Christmas hols and said it was ok till Ellie started filling the rucksack with all the great pebbles she found ready to complete these.
It was this picture that we really loved when we looked at the book on Christmas Eve.
I'll post some pictures of our crafts - I'm hoping we might get chance to do some together on Saturday if the boys go fishing.
Also decided to pop to Laura Ashley this morning as we put red gingham under the glass on our coffee table for Christmas to make it look more festive - I've kept it for a while but it does look a bit out of place so I decided to get some of the natural to replace it with.
Whilst at the checkout I noticed the new catalogue is out !! Yippee
I love to look through the catalogue and dream about what I would have if I won the lottery - they have some great new fabrics and a beautiful new rose bedding that is very Cath Kidston.
I'm off now to have a really good look through my new books !!
Thanks for all your comments on the last post - my blue project is coming on nicely but it isnt quite ready for its catwalk just yet.
