Stubs is making me a warm maker.

August 3, 2011

Stubs is hand knitting me a a blanket, she surprised me with it for my birthday. If you read my blog you will know that I love these types of blankets. Love love love them. So when I unwrapped these squares of loveliness I nearly fell off my chair.

I had to give them back to her a few days later so she can carry on, but for a brief moment I was quite happy living with my 24 mini blankets of prettiness.

Stubs also bought me this amazing book called The Black Apple’s Paper Doll book. It’s full of beautifully designed paper dolls that you can cut out. The outfits that have been designed for these characters are amazing, in fact the characters themselves are amazing. There are even backdrops and stage pieces that you can cut out, like cutains and pillars etc they have even included extras that you can dress up. It’s like a Tim Burton storybook. I have only taken pictures of a handful of the pages in the book, wish I could show you it in real life. I think I may photostat them and then have some fun sticking them around.

Thanks Stubs-face, love you my friend x
