You should have seen Mr C's face when I came home with this lot today!
I received a phone call from P & L Interiors saying they had a few out of date fabric books for me. I was there within fifteen minutes and lugged the first lot home, then returned with Dobbin, my trusty
steed trolley, to collect the rest.
These are GORGEOUS!
There were even sample books of tassels, pom-poms and the rest of the braidy bunch.
How fab is all that for absolutely free?
Oh, by the way, remember the freeform scrumbles I made last week? (See two posts ago "Knitting Without a Parachute") Here is the completed bag. I loved doing it and can't wait to get started on another.
I have also completed another UFO, previously mentioned. The £2.50 charity shop wooden dolls house, as seen below in its embarrassingly naked condition ...
... has now been painted up and is currently living as a New England boathouse.
I say I've completed it, but I have a feeling it's going to have a few more fripperies added at some point before I sell it.
