Sew Happy Right Now




When I returned home on Monday I had a parcel waiting for me at the post office. I was so excited to receive my book order from Amazon. Why? Because, among other books, I purchased "Sew Sunny Homestyle" by Tone Finnanger. I had been aching to get my hands on it. There are loads of easy projects to make. And of course I got started straight away. Making fabric ice-creams. A bit of fun. A smile or two. That's made me happy today.

  4. Hi Simone- I hope you had a wonderful trip. I just love when I order stuff and see a package the postman delivered sitting on my front step. Books, especially creative ones are my favorite. I would be devouring it by now. I hope you enjoy it. I will have to go check it out, it looks like a book I would like.
