Here comes the sun...



The new issue of Crafts Beautiful is out now (September 2011) and just before I jet off on my hols I thought I'd quickly pop in to show you my projects for them this month.


I've actually got two different projects in this issue, a card project with an outdoorsy Summer theme, and a notebook, keyring, and bookmark set created using bright patchwork type fabrics... Really enjoyed doing both of these, especially as they are quite different to each other. Am loving the fabrics I used for the project below at the moment - really want to make myself a patchwork cushion from them at some point - another project to add to my  long list then! I just think they are so pretty...


Sorry it's only a brief visit today, but thanks for all the kind comments on my last couple of posts - glad you like my new workspace as much as I do! Still have a big smile on my face every time I go in there!
 
Anyway, I will be away from blogland again for the next few weeks but here's wishing you all a fabulous rest of the Summer - will be back soon - hopefully nice and refreshed and with a little bit of a tan if I'm lucky (though I'm so super pale usually it's quite normal for me to get 'Oh I thought you were going away?? Or was the weather just awful?' when I come back. 'No no, this is me with a tan!')
 
Have just been to Asda - I'm a classy lady - to stock up on a few more cheapy beach clothes so now am all set. So much looking forward to having some time in the sunshine and not having the pressure to do anything in particular, though sadly, my crochet will not be coming with us - tried my best to squeeze all 15 balls of wool in the suitcase, but I have had to accept that I just cannot fit it in! Taking half of it just will not do, I want it all or nothing... So as a compromise, am taking my tapestry to finish instead!
 
Have a lovely few weeks, back soon x

p.s if it's not too late have you tried those space saving bags that you can suck the air out of???

Your new CB projects are gorgeous - I would love the notebook myself!! Have a wonderful holiday, and enjoy doing your tapestry - (it would not be good to have too much wool in your suitcase, and you will crochet all the quicker when you get home again after a break!) Have fun in the sun.

Gorgeous projects! I also love the fabrics you've used - so lovely!!

You make me laugh - I also have the same tanning issues!! I actively encourage white strap marks, watch marks etc - anything to prove that I am tanned!!! Without showing how white I was before, no-one believes I've caught the sun! Hehe...

Have a wonderful holiday! Maria x
