They Fill Me With Peace

Recently, there have been three songs, that just fill me up with peace and hope. I really want to share them with you, so you can hear them and know that there are some songs out there that are truly beautiful. The fact that they are all guitar songs is purely coincidental ;)

Paper Kites - Bloom

Paper Kites - Featherstone

Mumford & Sons - Lovers Eyes

The Sewing Cafe

Last Weekend I went to stay with my Auntie and Grandma. It was a really fun stay! Near them, there is a newly opened sewing cafe, which my aunt was dying to try out, but had to no-one who liked sewing to go with. So when I turned up, it was the perfect opportunity! When we arrived, it was a lovely atmosphere! The principle behind it is a internet cafe, however instead of computers, there are sewing machines! There is also a beautiful range of fabrics to choose from which were all beautiful. I thought that this was a wonderful chance to make the plush fox that has a tutorial for on her blog!
So we bought along some stuffing and buttons, chose our fabrics and begun to sew!

The Love List - April

Starting this month, I have decided that a new monthly project will be the Love List.
Each month, I will create a list of things I am loving and share it with you. Feel free to comment with things your loving and ideas for next months list! Also, each list will have one blog that I am reading, so that you can go and read it to!

White slim Angel 35mm Analog Camera
Being a teen means not much money. So I can't afford posh DSLR cameras. However, this analog camera is easy on the pocket and produces beautiful photo's, with all the fun of developing your film.

Embroidery Hoop Art
An easy and effective way to enhance your appliqué! I am planning to do this next time I have a quiet 
weekend in. Hoops are available at very cheap prices, in various sizes at all good craft shops.

Handmade Fox Plush Toy
These gorgeous little foxes are handmade by and are gorgeous. She gives you a tutorial on how to make them, which I am hoping to do in a couple of days. I will post the results!
