Today's post isn't about the princesses but there were a couple of names without emails or with emails that bounced back so if you haven't received the pattern please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply with the pattern. I am intending to do an appliqued dress at the weekend so I will pop some photos and notes about it on Sunday. The flickr group is up and running http://www.flickr.com/groups/lilipopo_princesses/
you're all welcome to join, my princesses are looking a little sad all by themselves!
I should have done this before now but, well time gets away from you sometimes... this christmas there was a lot of effort put into making presents and where we couldn't make buying presents that some one else had made. Because of this we have had some beautiful stuff to (reluctantly) give away. Unfortunately the things that left the house weren't photographed.
My partner's mum received this beautiful pin cushion kit from Lorna bateman embroidery which she absolutely adored.
my son was lucky enough to receive this (remarkably accurate) portrait of himself in the morning from little black heart, I have to admit we all look quite a lot like this in the morning!
and I kept this most gorgeous little bird that also came from little black heart, she is sitting on my work desk where I can enjoy looking at her all day long (rather than working!)
my daughter so wanted this picture from caroline rose art that I couldn't resist. She actually found it very hard to choose! and who could blame her, I suspect that come her birthday there will be a boat along side her caravan (she clearly wants to travel, but travel in prettiness)
and, being in love with Caroline, she bought me this beautiful pendant from her folksy shop which I adore!
this one is a little bit of a cheat because I bought it for myself this week, a gorgeous charm from gracie's garden bazaar which came this morning and is sooooooo beautiful, I absolutely love it!
as for me I am busy drawing up the pattern for my daisy girl to go on sale next week I hope. I love these antiquey colours from Anchor, they are so wonderfully subtle
and she has stripy tights of course!
