scandinavian needlecraft

this week I recieved a wonderful parcel of goodies from Annie and Laura from their birthday giveaway.
As well as gorgeous fabrics it included this wonderful book, scandinavian needlecraft.

this dandelion head embroidery is calling to me,

but first I think some of the Christmas projects are crying out to be made.

and I think this little bird garland and these horse gift tags are going to be the perfect craft ideas for Miss K's birthday party.

thank you sooo much x


  1. Looks like a lovely book, I especially like the reindeer

  2. I have that book too - isn't it lovely? Can't wait to be finished with making stuff for school (this weekend is the deadline, wahoo) so I can spend time sewing for my family instead.

  3. I've got that book too. It's one of my favourites. Clare Youngs also did the "Christmas Crafting in No Time" book which is currently a favourite in blogland. I like her style.

  4. That little dala horse is the ultimate. Have fun! xoxo

  5. Looking forward to seeing what you make, the book looks really interesting. Simple but definitely effective.
    Have a great day!

  6. It looks like the kind of book that I could get loads of inspiration from for my 'makes'. Let us see what you make won't you! Love Scandinavian!!

  7. Yum! I have this book too. The dandelion is divine, isn't it?
