A truly beautiful Minxy mix of charm, inspiration, practical advice, and pretty projects to simplify and beautify your life and home. - Jane Brocket, The Gentle Art of Domesticity
I’m on a self-imposed ban from buying new fabric until the crafts cabinet starts to look a little less jam-packed (at the moment, every time I open a door something falls out and whacks me on the head) but I simply could not resist this amazing, 100% cotton, gold-leaf-painted Japanese fabric panel. Don’t ask me what I’m going to do with it – I might just stare at it each day and sigh, too scared to wield scissors. Isn’t it lovely? It would make a lush origami-style tote.
I’m working on a silk faux-eiderdown for book two today and really just needed to pop into Quiltsmith for some cotton wadding, on my clever crafts editor Georgina’s recommendation. That was until I realised they had a sale on: 20% off all fabric. My resolution went out the window… I do love a sale.
In for a penny, in for a pound I thought, and bought myself half a metre of this gorgeous floral pattern also. I will quote Olive’s first word: Yay!
