Books and Flowers


I have the loveliest of friends, one who recently returned from adventures in the US bought these back for me, the Nancy Halvorsen one is even signed!


I spent all last night drooling over these books, the Anni Downs book is a must have if you're a fan of her whimsical characters, there's some gorgeous projects to keep you busy for hours!
Thank-you H and next time I'm going with you!

And I just have to show you these....

teeny-tiny crocheted flowers from Jack'n'Jill, great for all crafts!

Lucky you as Anni's book is wonderful, what do you think of Nancy's as I was going to get it if it had some interesting things in it as I love all of her fabric and have a few of her books already
