Sunny N Wales

Well, a bit optimistic about the sunny bit but the rest of the post title is OK as we are all packed up ready to get off tomorrow for a week's break.  Think I have covered every eventuality in the weather - sun (???), rain (much more likely) and cold (same) and looking forward to an open fire so we need to stock up on firelighters and buy a bag of coal on the way.

Have packed a few (?) craft items so will have a bit of a knitting and sewing week.  I plan to make another  jumper and hat for the fish and chips babies this week here is the one I finished sewing up today.

I also finished the little ribbon storage book I showed on last week's WOYWW following Jenniebellie's YouTube video.  Not quite finished as I have to come up with a better closure but I'm please with the result.

Outside, covered with strokeable washi paper...

... and a top view of the inside full of ribbons.

Whatever the weather I hope you all have a great Bank Holiday weekend - I know I will.

Hi Ann, your book turned out beautiful!! Absolutely LOVE the cover! I've learnt with my little one that ribbons make them bulky quickly, so now I'm looking for the perfect box that has a huge spine section to it so I can make a ribbon book to go alongside my washi tape book. I love your description of 'strokeable' washi tape lol I so know what you mean. Hope you're well and much love to you xxx
