Stitch at Home by Mandy Shaw

A couple of weeks ago at Birmingham NEC I had the good fortune to meet the very talented lady Mandy Shaw of Dandelion Designs

Mandy had a new book on the way and she had samples there on the day so my friend Lynda and I pre-ordered a copy each and my book arrived today!

I thought I would share it with you as it is a delight.
I have had a good hour with a cuppa oohhing and aahhing my way through it and there are lots of makes that I am determined I will create from this book.

 The book is signed by the author which is a lovely touch.

Here is a sneaky peek of the delights on offer:

Cottage Sewing Case, ...oohhh

Patchwork Quilt, ...aahhhh

Cutwork  Pin Cushion, ...wow

Sometimes you buy a craft book and there are one or two things you really must make, well in this book I really want to make almost every project!  There is even a fabulous dog bed I want to make and I don't even own a dog! I did want to show you almost every page, but that would be cheeky.

Anyhoo, off to make a few notes and gather some supplies :0)

p.s.  don't forget there is still time to enter my little giveaway, you will find it here.

p.p.s. My friend Lynda (The Swap Queen) is hosting a Jubilee Swap if you are interested you will find that over here.

p.p.p.s. The clever Jenny Arnott has been featured in a new crafty book is having a lovely giveaway over on her blog you can find details of that here!

Phew, that's all folks, back soon!
