I’m officially in Love. I knew I would be. LINNET is most definitely in my top ten shops in the whole wide world. No, make that top five.
My parcel arrived early this morning. It was probably more exciting than Christmas. Up we got Astrid and I, and out to carefully and slowly unwrap and examine the delights that lay within.
The calendar is lovely, with a different set of cute watercolours for each month. I bought this to inspire me to get my watercolours out and use them. I’ve already hung it next to my new inspiration board. So I’m feeing quite organised this year.
The linen I bought, tiny pieces they were, are of the most amazing quality I’ve ever felt. It’s by no means cheap but worth every penny. This grain-sack linen is so heavy and just exquisite.
What had initially led me to LINNET, my google search for linen ribbon, all simply gorgeous as well. Funnily, the day after ordering this I inherited a roll of about 20 metres of antique linen tape.
The yarn on the left hand side above is a very fine white linen. I was left my grandmother’s crochet hooks, amongst which were many lace hooks. So I also picked up some little crochet motif patterns – so I’ll now have a good excuse to actually sit down and watch a dvd tonight whilst crocheting some of these.
I’ve still got to finish the four bags I started making yesterday which I’ll do today. But for now it’s time to get ready for the day and head to La Cigale market where we’ll fill my new tote bag with gorgeous fresh produce then sit down with a yummy hot moccachino and watch the world go by.
