Inspirational . . .

With Spring just around the corner now is the time to begin creating lighter and brighter surroundings especially as our winter months here in the UK seem to go on for ever!

I've treated myself to two new pattern books and have to say that they do not disappoint - the first is Tone Finnangers' Summer Ideas booklet which is as expected beautifully illustrated and leaves you pondering over which project to begin first!

In this book there are ideas for kitchen and garden angels, colourful garlands and lovely papercraft ideas that are made using the latest Tilda collections using shades of turquoise, green, pink and red.

The second book, 'Quilt a Gift' is packed with 25 heart-felt projects from the quick to the intricate, so if you're anything like me and find it difficult to set aside enough time for those last minute gifts this book is a must with projects that cater for any occasion from a Birthday garland to a house-warming quilt . . . all that leaves me to do now is to choose what to attempt first!
