To add to the summery theme, I also bought a little box crammed with gorgeous buttons of all shapes and sizes in pretty pastel colours. There are some flower-shaped ones, heart shaped ones and loads of beautiful shiny round ones. The possibilities of what I can make this afternoon are endless- I'd better get to it!

Have you ever woken up feeling full of inspired craftiness- so many ideas about lovely things to create that you just cannot wait to get started? Yesterday, was like that for me and I was definitely having difficulty focusing on my work and what I should have been doing! 5pm couldn't come fast enough and I was soon out the office door and on my way to find supplies- and what lovely things I found! Some beautiful Liberty fabric remnants. Oh, these are so gorgeous and flowery and utterly summery! I also bought some very pretty braids and two cards wrapped with old- fashioned ric-rac, in lovely pale blue and pink. Isn't "ric-rac" a lovely term- it sounds so much how it looks ric-rac/zig-zag! When I was a little girl, my favourite summer dresses were those with rows of ric-rac around the hem.
