How much do I love Tilda........

After waiting an awfully long time and having this book pre-ordered since February, its finally arrived, and I'm very excited. Here's a bit of a sneaky peek into the latest book by Tone Finnanger, Sew Sunny Homestyle. (English edition).
Look at that desk!

I love this bird house sewing kit idea and can't wait to try it.

Sorry the pics are a bit naff, the light is terrible today. Wheres the sun its August for crying out loud.

This bag is sooooo pretty, another one for my must make list.

I practically jumped off the sofa when I saw this stunning cake made out of soap. I'm desperate to have a go at making it. I've got all sorts of ideas rushing through my head. I can just picture this soap cake on a craft stall.

These hens are so cute!

And I love this little character, such an adorable little face.

I hope you liked the sneaky peek. As you know I'm Tilda mad and adore these books. I shall be kept entertained for hours with these.

There are some beautiful pictures in there, I think I'd enjoy drooling over that even if I'd not be up to the projects themselves! I love the things in it and the fabrics.

I got mine yesterday, and I've hardly put it down, there's just so much to look at!
It took at least 3 times, and my DD to point out the little boats in the bottles!


Love and blessings
