I very much admire the work of Amy Adams of LucyKate Crafts and was delighted to hear that a book of her softie patterns was being published next month. And in the meantime … Amy is generously sharing one of the patterns from her book – the Dragonfly – as a free downloadable design, it’s available here
I think there might be one of two of these irresistible insects hovering around our gazebo this year! Click here to learn more about Countryside Softies – it’s definitely going on my wish list!
Meanwhile – just to keep you updated – our village bunting project is going really well – flags cut now number well into 4 figures – yes that’s more than ONE THOUSAND flags – and the afternoon for sewing machine owners to start to assemble the bunting has been arranged for May. Tea and cakes will be on hand, and it should be a fun time for all.
This has proved to be a really successful idea – everyone from the children at the village school, to the elderly ladies who attend our Lunch Club has had a hand in cutting flags – and we are all looking forward to seeing our contributions fluttering in the (hopefully!) sunshine at our Fete in July.
