New Book

Just a quick post to see if any one else is aware of the new Cath Kidston book. Its not published until October, but I have pre ordered my copy already


Here is a little review courtesy of good old Amazon...
'Cath Kidston has now put together a treasure trove of fabulous simple projects for stitchers to get their needles into - bags, clothes, soft toys and many more - and all designed to be made with her popular printed fabrics. As an inspirational kick-start, Cath is giving away with the book a length of a unique fabric specially printed for the book, together with handles, a label and button to make up into a bag. The book itself is packed with 48 projects with full instructions to make a range of fun and useful things, divided into sections on Home, Babies, Bags, Clothes, Accessories and Gifts. All the sewing techniques are clearly explained in an introductory section so that even an absolute beginner can be sure of success, together with details of how to embroider, applique and adorn your items in other ways. Stunning photographs, colourful contemporary design and step-by-step pictures make everything absolutely clear and user-friendly. The book also contains trace paper with cut-out patterns'.

I don't know about you but I cant wait!!!


Still no chance to leave any messages to say hello again. Ella has had a horrific stomach bug and has spent the entire week (four whole days) with severe sickness and diarrhea. Thankfully our little sweat pea is on the mend. Fingers crossed she will have her energy back to normal for our Easter hunt on Sunday then on Monday we are all off to Vina Cooks dolls museum.
If you live in the Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire area is is a place I would highly recommend! Full to the brim of vintage dolls, toys and costumes all in Vina's Georgian house. Monday will mark her 25th anniversary of running the museum and we can't wait. I used to visit regularly as a child as she was a family friend. I have the most delightful porcelain doll which she made for me as a child, a very treasured item indeed.

Wishing you all a happy and fun filled Easter.

hello again Faye..nice to see you back again with lovely photos of your beautiful stock! i know what you mean about having no time, I manage to steal a few minutes here and there to read a few favourite blogs but havent got any time to do anything other than that of late! Anyway, thanks for the tip off, I hadn't realised CK was bringing out a new book..looks like she listened to the critics of the last one!
Hope Ella's feeling much better..my friends little girl has just got over something similar, not nice at all.
Have a great Easter xx

I know this is an old post but I have had a lot of inquiries regarding the sausage dog from Cath Kidston. The book you have here, is that a sewing book or one of the magazines? Am trying to find out if there is a pattern for the dog.
