The above three pictures were the contents of a surprise parcel from my friend Jessicah of Spinning a yarn. Last year she asked if I had a vintage embroidered linen tablecloth from my collection that I might be willing to part with. She was putting together a very special 21st present for her sister and had been unable to find one. I said "yes" and instead of payment I asked for some fibre in return -she dyes fibre so beautifully, it seemed like a "win" for me! I didn't expect all the extras she sent, a beautiful bone crochet hook, a Japanese crochet book, that is going to stretch my chart following to extremes as there is no English instructions! But I'd love to make that shopping bag so it will be a good brain workout.
This book, written and photographed by this lovely lady also arrived this week! It needs a whole post of it's own so I'll do that this week, I'm already part way through sewing something amazing from it.
This Emma Makes journal made my day, I've wanted one of her Red Roman Sandal notebooks for quite a while. I love it!
