A beautiful new book!

If you have visited my blog before, you may have gathered by now, I really LOVE needlework books.  Actually, I'm addicted to them... just can't resist them!!  Well, this weekend I found a lovely parcel waiting in my post box.  It was the beautiful book that I had ordered recently from Quiltmania.  The book is called 'The Home Patch' and is by Anni Downs

Anni Downs is one of my favourite designers.  Her website is called 'Hatched and Patched' and she runs a shop in Bathurst, Australia (unfortunately a little too far for me to visit!) which is also called 'The Home Patch'.  The book (which is written in both French and English) is fabulous and has some wonderful projects in it as well as a lovely introduction all about Anni and how she got started in the patchwork and quilting world.

I love Anni's designs and have made several small items in the past from another of her books 'Simple Pleasures'.  A couple of lavender sachets (sorry they are covered in plastic, they were wrapped ready to be posted) and a really cute little scene of a house on a hill which I made into a miniature wall hanging.

Can't wait to get started on a couple of projects from the new book!


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. It is lovely to hear from you and very exciting to read what you have to say!!
