I received my first order last week, and it only took 11 days from date of order until it was delivered to me in regional NSW - how fantastic is that?
This is one of her first books and it is filled with some wonderful Christmas projects. I especially love the idea of the "wall bags" - a great alternative to the traditional Christmas stocking.
I have to admit that I did pre-order two of her new books, and cannot wait for them to be published and in the post to me, but in the interim I did go back to the Book Depository store and ordered a couple more of her books for Christmas gifts. I wonder if this is can be counted in the "handmade" gifts category?
Moving on - does anyone else loose items in their craft room, or are you all terribly organised and everything has a place? I have a habit of buying supplies and then putting them somewhere (logical) for ease of access. Unfortunately it may be many months until I need to use it, and then the "logical" place has gone into hiding. I try and sort supplies into groupings, but because I work on a great variety of projects, it can sometimes get overwhelming (and I must admit I am a bower bird). I have (
wasted) spent a couple of hours this evening searching for my container which holds my zips, I was planning to sew some little budget envelopes. I had chosen the fabric and lining, and then when I went looking for the zips, they were no-where to be found, frustrating is the mildest work I can think of to use.
Therefore no sewing this evening, and a shopping trip planned for tomorrow - I suppose that will not be too bad.
