As I am still not sewing (5 weeks on Monday until I get my machine) I cannot keep away from looking (and buying but don't tell the BF!) at sewing related kit pieces or patterns, as I have been doing this I have come across some amazing sewing related items and I thought I would share some!
(and this is by no means a hint to said BF of any presents he may want to buy me just because I am awesome...)
All my friends have either just (like me in november) turned 30 or just about to, one of my best friends is taking her turn in June and we have a thing about trying to buy each other the most offensive card we can - its all in good humour but I decided to up the game for her 30th (which makes me feel a little bit guilty she made me a nice card but her real gift is awesome) so I have bought this cross stitch and am about 1/3 of the way in....apologies if this offends anyone!
The pattern is great and clearly set out which is making it an enjoyable make. She will love it! I will show the finished article as soon as I can!
The other thing about hitting 30 is that EVERYONE around you starts getting married - I have SEVEN weddings over the next year and as I love handmaking gifts (or buying handmade) I purchased this pattern yesterday
I think I will change the colours up a bit for the couples if I can work it out and I don't think I will have time to make it for everyone but definitely some of them.
Also, this may have fallen into my basket due to the 50% sale this shop has on at the moment...a Harry Potter themed home is acceptable right?
Also, I am actually starting to think about and plan Christmas presents - I know this is terrible as it is still closer to last christmas as it is to next but if I am handmaking them I need to get organised but I won't bore you with them just now
Have a great weekend guys!
