Liberty

When I was in London in June, I was lucky to get time away from sightseeing to go the Liberty Shop. I have grown up with a love of Liberty and their beautiful fabric. It is always hard to find here and so to be there surrounded by Liberty things was wonderful. I also didn't know that the Liberty shop is four floors and sells all sorts of other things like rugs and cosmetics.

So I was also very lucky for my Mum to give me this wonderful book.




She said she saw it in the book shop and knew that I would love it and I do. It is filled with fabric and lovely projects to use their fabric.

I did buy some Liberty fabric when I was in their shop, I also bought some cards and a tray. I could have stayed in there for hours.

Thanks Mum for the lovely book.

I have also added to my books lately with these ones.




I saw this online and my monkeys made the little knitted owls from here. It has some other lovely projects that they want to make too, like the little doll.




This knitting technique looked so interesting I thought I better give it a try. Luckily it has great instructions!




I'm hoping to make some summer dresses out of this one. Loads of ideas and easy instructions.


I really love books and have quite a library of knitting, sewing, quilting and crafty books and I love them all.

Hi - I keep meaning to ask what you think of the Liberty book - do I need to buy one :)
Also, the made by me book, would that be ok for Bella?
