SEAM BINDING !!!!!
I have absolutely no idea why it is so difficult to get the old fashioned silky, soft, shiny, tactile seam binding here in the UK, but almost impossible it proved to be. I couldn't find any locally, I could only find a a couple of places on the net with a very limited number of colours, and the one supplier I found on Ebay here in the UK and ordered from with a huge grin on my face, promptly made me cry the same day by telling me that she would have to withdraw all her listings as she had broken her wrist. Of course you can get millions of colours of the most delicious seam binding in the States. Can I admit to being ever such a teeny bit envious of the wonderful, plentiful supplies you can get over there? Sigh. And not just on the net, but also in the most fabulous craft stores, double sigh.
So, I had told myself that ordering seam binding from the States was perfectly ok, as it was my husband's Christmas present to me. He didn't know it then, but hey, men occasionally need a little help in the pressie department. Of course, when the beautiful stuff arrived, I told him what he had bought me for Christmas, and he promptly burst out laughing as he saw me sitting there, grinning like crazy and gently stroking my seam bindings. Who needs diamonds and pearls, when they can have seam binding, lol?
Enough said, have a look at the gorgeous colours I picked -
So very lovely. And then there were, ahem, these -
more neutrals -
prettiest pinks -
and gorgeous greens -
Aaah, see, my darling husband has done it again, found me the perfect Christmas present, just what I have always wanted ;-).
Girls, this is Christmas week, isn't it exciting??? Don't stress over anything, enjoy yourselves, and have fun getting the last few things ready for the big day.
I am off to wrap a few more pressies now. Toodlepip xxx
