I have already made the cigar box my own, filling it with my sewing stuff, in tribute to the seamstress who owned it last (it had several well used needles and odd bits inside, I've not thrown them away, but they weren't much use to me in their current state!). Really quite sweet little things, I am so pleased to give them a home!

Blooming Pretty Kitty- Eco Friendly Plush by stitchface
I'm not sure what today holds just yet, but I plan to make the most of it! The sun is shining, we already have a fresh egg in the fridge and I have a new copy of Selvedge magazine to enjoy, so I think it's going to be a good day!

I've had a pretty relaxed day today, we put together our new "Eglu Go" Chicken Coop this morning (we got the yellow one - it's fab!), and our chickens will be arriving tomorrow - we're both very excited! I will be sure to post pics of the chooks and our first eggs! And, just to prove that I actually took a break after I'd finished my work yesterday... my chive scones! They are really quite yummy, topped with some smoked applewood cheese! Mmmmm!

They are a variety of sizes, from 4" to 8", not obvious at this stage, but I will be photographing them tomorrow together so it will be easier to see how they relate to each other. So, next I am going to be working on my fabric and jewellery designs, the next stage! For this evening, as a reward, I plan to relax a little, I've just taken chive scones out of the oven and I'm going to be watching a film and working on my latest granny square!

At the moment it is holding my little research books, which are a work in progress of collecting bits and bobs so that I have plenty to look at for inspiration when I've finished uni, but eventually it will store my projects on my desk (crochet and knitting, fabric etc), so they will be neat and conveniently to hand!

Thursday, 8 April 2010
And finally my lovely pile of goodies from Ruthin Craft centre's little shop; the book that goes with Becky's delightful exhibition, plus all the postcards, and a book of Angie Lewin's beautiful jewellery. Food for the soul I think!
Tomorrow is plotted out to be a very busy day, but for now, I plan to spend this evening enjoying my new books, and some well deserved time with my hubby!

I found this little treasure when we were at the seaside last Friday, it was tucked away in one of the charity shops, and as soon as I saw it I knew it would be coming home with me! Not only is the sweet little drawing on the top just perfect for me (kitties and knitting!), but I just love the little compartments inside for all of my various bits and bobs! I've always loved boxes with compartments, ever since I was a little girl and I used to play with my Gran's big wooden jewellery box, putting all my little people inside and playing make-believe. Not sure what will be stashed away inside this one yet, but I'm sure it will be lovely!
and most exciting of all, my fabric order from Spoonflower which is just fab (I was so excited that I didn't even iron it before taking pics!!). After spending a couple of hours playing around with the site to see what it could do, I am going to be ordering lots more now I know how good the quality is. A very exciting day of post indeed!

After that excitement we headed to Tate Modern, and took advantage of our membership for a nice relaxing cup of tea in the member's room, with this spectacular view...
We also went to the Michelangelo exhibition at Somerset House, and had a lovely wander around Covent Garden before heading home. Today is all about work, so I'm off to get started - I am working on fabric designs today!

Life's a beach too, A set of 4 porcelain beach hut buttons by hodgepodgearts
It's always a lovely day out at the seaside; we saw the smallest house in Wales, visited lots of teeny sweet little shops, and had lots of tea! I also picked up my Flea Market Find for this week... back later to show it off!

They need to be finished, and the backs prettified, and the daisy chain needs to be sewn onto the fabric, but so far, I like them!
