Blogtoberfest Day 23/Blog-away

A little something to celebrate the festive season of Blogtoberfest as well as my 200th post. (Yes I like to chat a little bit apparently).

This little embroided notebook cover (A5 size) is made with some red flower fabric that was the very first fabric I every bought (check it here on my fourth post and again on my fifth post) and the linen is from Kristen Doran. It comes with a matching pen/pencil holder that can be removed and used on other books too.

So anyone who would like this little set, just leave me a comment before the end of Blogtoberfest on 31st October and I'll do the draw through the random number generator-thingy.

I've been loving doing some embroidery in the last week. Getting to be crafty while sitting out on the lounge with the family instead of locking myself away with the sewing machine in another room and looking like a crazy lady chatting to it. Well sometimes arguing with it. I have another embroidery for another notebook all done, just need to piece it all together and then on to more Xmas gifts.

Also over in the Princess and the Monkey Shop and on Etsy I'm running a special until the end of October, free postage in Australia and the free matching zippered pouch with any Arty Bag.
