I have been thoroughly enjoying and trying not to drool all over my copy. Thumbing through it just makes me happy and want to live a more colorful life. (My house is so beige right now – nothing on the taupe walls yet.) Partly because of pictures like the one above. I want to make a quilt like the patchwork covering this chair! And if I were a knitter I would totally keep my things in a bag just like this. Maybe I’ll just go out and buy some pretty balls of yarn and put them in a red polk-a-dot (or spotted) bag and prop them on a cozy chair.
I also love all the wonderful britishisms like: rucksacks, tea cozies, favourites, knickers, wellies, brollies, and washing up liquid. Gives me some serious warm fuzzies. Many thanks to Amy for alerting me to this treasure trove.
And while I was just on the CK site I noticed the promotion for this new book to be released later this month. I may need to get my hands on a copy of that.
Maybe tomorrow I will be back with some of my own photos. My camera battery died this weekend and can’t find the recharger! I think I’ve located the box it was in and hopefully today I will be able to re-juice my battery. And in other good news, I finally found the box of my long-sleeved shirts and sweaters under the Christmas tree in the basement. Progress is a good thing.
