It arrived yesterday and I haven't been able to put it down since!

I had seen quite a bit of Chloe Owen's work around recently and I love it.

She uses her sewing machine to create some beautiful pieces of artwork using vintage fabric's to 'colour in' her drawing's. She also sews some gorgeous accessories and makes beautiful things to have around the home...

So when I saw in a craft mag that she had a book coming out, I just Had to pre-order it here and I am Sooo glad I did. The book is completely gorgeous just to look at, let alone all of the brilliant projects she has within the book.

The photo's are really lovely and I can't wait to try out some of the projects myself. I definitely want to make this owl cushion and try out the freehand embroidered tea cosy.

There's also a really sweet pom-pom skirt that would look incredibly cute on Rose.. sooo much to do, but so little time though!

It was discounted on Amazon and I think it was a complete bargain as theres just so much to look at in the book and unlike some craft books, as soon as I got to the last page... I just wanted to start from the beginning all over again!

I'm going to go now and catch a few minutes of reading time before Rose needs her dinner.. See you later!
