Wowser! Thanks heaps for the big praise for my Gas Bag. Blimey it looks like it went down well with you folks :) I have almost finished the zippy tute and it will be posted on the blog tomorrow.
Meanwhile if any of you fancy having a look see to check out what my man is up to in South Africa here is Al's Flickr. He only started taking pictures this year and he only got himself at Flickr account last month (after much nagging from me). I've already warned him that there will be a few of us checking out his photos :)
I want to thank everyone who has sent me lovely messages and comments asking about Al and seeing if I'm doing OK without him being around. I'm very touched you thought to ask; you're such lovely women! OXO
**UPDATE** I have just found out that Amy Butler will be in town (London) on the 12th August for a book signing of Little Stitches and other titles. She'll also be bringing along some finished sewn projects. So if you're in town on the 12th Amy will be in Liberty @ 11.30 - 4.30 and she will also pop into John Lewis on Oxford St.
