Glimma and Architextures from Katy.
This one was a bit of a shock (in the best possible way.) Each month, one person doing the Aurifil 2013 BOM wins an Aurifil prize (you just have to have one of the blocks made and up in the FLickr group). I won February's and was expecting a sample pack of thread. So you can imagine the squealing and dancing that ensued when I opened the parcel to find this:
It's Pat Sloan's designer collection for Aurifil, all 50wt big spools. A perfect rainbow of thready awesomeness :o)
And finally, my amazingly perfect vintage headband from my lovely friend Nat. I decided to be brave and photograph myself wearing it rather than just photographing the band. I don't do makeup (ever. I don't own any), and I have a bit of a cold (hence the rudolph nose). But I needed to show you how perfect that green is - it matches my eye colour almost exactly. And it is so, so soft and has the best button to do it up. Thanks so, so much Nat I love it (and weirdly can't wait for the weather to cool down so I can wear it!!)
You should also pop over and visit Nat and Lu at their new blog Le Challenge - monthly theme, any kind of craft (knitting, sewing, whatever). It should be fun!
