to be sung tunefully!...

"Didn't we have a lovely time, the day we went to Skipton!!!"

Kate Crane and I discovered that Skipton was halfway between where we both live, and since it just happens to have a great stamp shop as well, we met there!  If you've not seen Kate's work yet, head over to her blog as you're missing a real treat. 

It's even more amazing in real life.  The colours are stunning, but it always gets me that it's so hard to judge size on the internet.  Her leather journal is A6 in size, much tinier than I'd imagined.  A treasure to hold :)  Jill and Ian are very warm and welcoming and we had a fab time chatting, sharing art and ideas, and shopping...of course!!!

Then yesterday I received a parcel in the post from my great friend Julie.

After savouring the moment, I opened it to discover all these wonderful goodies.  How fab are these?!!!

Julie had told me she'd found a book that was just 'so me' she had to order it straight away.  And I'm so glad she did, look!!!

Fairies, fibre art and all bound in a book, how fab is this!!  It's very me!  So a VERY BIG THANKYOU Julie! I love it!  Watch out for some fairy artwork here tomorrow, I've been in 'fairyland' today, busy creating :)


  1. May I just say that you sound like the old Sarah today and that makes my heart glad!

    You are welcome...a new stack of goodies has already begun piling up on the 'Sarah's stuff' shelf!

    You continue to inspire us all....but I am totally jealous that you got to meet up with Kate! : )

  2. Wow! Lucky old you Sarah. That parcel of goodies looks so fab. The book looks great too as I've seen Pattie's gorgeous cloth dolls before in a copy of Stitch magazine and just loved them. Might have to put this book on my Christmas list too.
    Off to look at Kate's blog now as she does great stuff in Craft Stamper.
    Can't wait to see your new work.

  3. Oh, how fun, Sarah! That Julie's a nice girl, isn't she?!

    How fun to have a wonderful crafty friend to have adventures with! Glad you had such a great time!
