While I was in the country on the weekend, I took a few minutes to wander around with the camera.
These are some lovely flowers that my parents-in-law have managed to grow, in spite of some very harsh water restrictions. This is not usually a pink I am drawn to (I’m more into a coral type pink usually), but my tastes must be changing because I brought home some of this pink from the local Lincraft yesterday.
I only went there for some thread – Lincraft has disappointed me so much lately with it’s fabric selection that I was stunned to find something that I really liked.
Officially it is Christmas fabric, but it could be used for anything. These two colourways were so fresh and bright (see the pink), I really had to have them. I am going to make little bags to put presents into, rather than wrapping paper. I bought some white grosgrain ribbon to tie them up with. For the last few years I have given Christmas gifts in reusable Royal Childrens’ Hospital Bags, but my family and friends may have enough of these by now. Guess now I will have to start working out what I am going to get everyone.
Has anyone else out there started their Christmas shopping?
