Stitchy

One of the highlights of last week was the arrival of a parcel from Alice of Raspberry.



I won a copy of Craft Magazine in her give-away, and when she sent it she included some trim and these rolls of measuring tape packing tape. Aren't they fab!


I am being drawn to sewing motifs at the moment - not least of all, these beautiful ceramics, and these rubber stamps and even my new shoes.

Oh yeah, new shoes - my 'not-buying-it' kick seems to have come to an abrupt end. I'm all, spend-it, have it, you're worth it at the moment - very very dangerous. Shopping anyone?

Love the ceramics....always dangerous when I start checking on the blog where I can buy them
..groan...
I live and die in my Crocs at the moment, a habit I think I have to get out of 'cos I want to wear them all the time, they are sooo comfortable. I like the sound of your new shoes in green....can you tell me what make they are?

I think your shoes are verrrry nice. I was about to buy myself some crocs - after having ribbed my husband mercilessly last summer - but I think yours are much prettier!

Nothing wrong with a little retail therapy every now and then - and besides, everyone needs shoes ...

Ooooh I know what you mean about the not buying it kick. I have fabulous will power until it runs out and then I seem to buy twice as much to make up for thre previous deprivation. I'm sure it doesn't help ,y bank balance at all.

Really groovy shoes. I might try and find some.

monica said...

ok. let's go now.

And I almost bought the same shoes. In green!!!

oh the shoes, the shoes, the shoes...and the tape is very nice too but the el naturalista shoes are too gorgeous for words (you can tell I'm a bit of a shoe nerd as I know my brands!!).

Love the tapes and the shoes. I've given in to the croc phenomenon but those are more attractive (could I hide them in the wardrobe I wonder?)

I too have suddenly gone shop mad after all of 4 weeks deprivation and smugness. Will I ever learn?
