It's Sewww This Year Darling!
Sometimes It Rains In April
So now, this month's theme is going to be ‘April Showers’, which goes on sale today and for a limited time is available at a discount. Click here for more info.
The colours were inspired by this photo that I came across during my research, and are navy blue, fresh green with and a lovely ‘pop’ of spring yellow and the box contains a lovely mix of luxury ‘baby alpaca’, shimmering silk and super-soft merino, with some special surprise treats included as usual.
That's why the phrase ‘April showers bring May flowers’ sprang to mind - the fact that we often complain about the rain but forget about the riot of colour that it nurtures and encourages!
Live to Dye Another Day!
I also experimented with a selection of dried herbs and spices from my pantry, the most successful of which was Turmeric and a mixed selection of Jamaican curry spices that I had purchased in a bustling market place on a previous trip over there.I loved the variety of yellows and orange shades produced by the herbs and spices on the beautifully soft alpaca and other fibres.
Jumbo Knitting Is More Like An Extreme Sport!
I passionately believe that crafting is great for our overall wellbeing, but what I hadn't banked on was just how physical jumbo knitting is! It felt more like a 60 minute workout than a creative crafting session!
I have previously experimented with arm knitting
"It's Like Christmas But Better!"
I am really enjoying putting these boxes together for you and also loving the fantastic responses that I am getting from you all about the contents. One customer messaged me to say:
“My box has just arrived - Wow!!!! I didn't hope for so much! It is like Christmas but better! Thank you!”
That message made my day and hopefully receiving your box of fun will make yours!
