Roz, the creator of the lovely Rosie Flo's Fashion Show coloring kit was kind enough to send a kit for Emma to enjoy. Even though I was excited to tear it open when it arrived back at the end of May, I've been keeping it hidden, waiting till school was out and hands were idle. Emma spent 2 days straight coloring and kitting out this lovely fashion show. The set even comes with invitations! Sadly, this kit is not available in the US, but there are other Rosie Flo coloring books available through Chronicle.
Yesterday's mail surprise was Lizzy's book 1001 Peeps. This is a gorgeous book, with 4 completely original quilt patterns and one lovely crewel pattern. Lizzy's illustration work is really lovely, and these quilt designs show it all off beautifully. I don't know where to start first! Read Lizzy's thoughts about Midnight At The Oasis, Spice Route, and The High Seas, 3 of the patterns in the book.I really love Lizzy's whimsical illustration style and her use of color.
Back to our total lack of routine, I'll peek out again soon.
