Crafty Purchases!

Hello! I'm posting some pictures today of some recent crafty purchases! :) My mum bought me a beautiful vintage sewing box from a local car-boot yesterday..
guess how much!? 
only £4.00! how amazing! :) :) 
and here's some more pretty Cath Kidston fabric's i bought because i can't resist them!
and here are some super cute fabric cake slices i got from ebay, they are handmade from this seller - she also makes little cupcakes too. 
and lastly here is my new knitting roll (of course another CK purchase!), i thought i would get back in to my knitting again, i've only dabbled with it in the past.. because I'm pretty useless! but I'm going to try and stick with it this time.. Also you may notice my magazine in the background, that's Cotton Time if your not familiar with it. It's the best craft magazine around, though it is all in Japanese! but the pictures are amazing! 
Here are a couple to tempt you...

I have just taken out my life savings by subscribing to an annual subscription aahh ! 
hehe .. it's not quite that much really ... ? but it's worth it, I've been wanting it for ages and just decided to finally take the plunge.

I hope you liked my craft purchases, aren't they the best things to buy ... such a buzz! :) 


  1. That sewing box is absoultely gorgeous, I'm so jealous!!

  2. Now I know that I am vintage because I have that sewing box!! It was bought NEW for me from work when I left to have my first baby. Oh dear! lol x

  3. Oh my goodness, I love the inside of that magazine. I wish I could have a copy myself! How much is a subscription? There are so many magazines not offered in the US that I would love to have a subscription to.

  4. I have been wanting Cotton Time for ages too! :D It's such a lovely magazine, and I love looking at snippets of pages on Flickr :).
    Loving the fabrics too - they are absolutely heavenly.

  5. Lucky girl! That sewing box is fabulous :)

  6. The sewing box is a treasure! And I'm jealous of your Cath Kidston finds, I just ordered her catalog and I'm going to figure out an order for myself :)
