Just in case you wondered and/or were really worried I haven't been killed/kidnapped by a dozen mutant non-ginger bread men, instead I've been spending the last couple of days with my parents. They've gone back to Italy this morning and we all miss them already.
I don't have much to post, unless you want to see mountains of washing and ironing, what I have is a bit of self indulgence:
a gorgeous packet from Laura, two great magazines, wonderful fabrics and vintage napkins , a homemade stamp of an apple which I had admired on her blog, and a cute xmas cookie cutter, and really cool books and stickers for the boys, so many fantastic things I was bowled over.
This is some wonderful linen fabric I found in a charity shop in town. It's shaped like a pair of trousers... but I see a nice spring bag... what do think?
And this is a gorgeous piece of corduroy I bough when out with Ali last Saturday, I see this as a Tote for the car, one of those bags you need when you're out with children or doing a spot of shopping.
Now back to that laundry room... sigh.
