Burda Book Arrives!

I am super excited, my new pre Christmas gift to myself has arrived this morning, The Burda Handbook. I am enjoying the ring binder presentation and after only a quick flick so far I have been inspired to try and be a little mote creative, developing my own style on the basics that Burda provide. I think this looks an exciting book that with strong foundations will enable you to tackle bigger and better projects.

I would also like to say a well done to Katjia another blogger who has one of her creations in the Burda book, how cool is that!? If you haven't seen her blog pop ove4r and give it a look a very creative  and talented lady to boot!

So in a couple of weeks Sew Weekly will be holding it's weekly challenge and it's theme will be a creation from this book. I really am inspired by the dress and I'm hoping some lovely red fabric I have will be enough and that I will be able to whip it up in time. If I don't manage it I am sure my Burda Style trousers should be finished by then.

I thought I would finish up with showing you my seasonal table, it has been a whole year that I have a table of this kind, as autumn is my favourite season I thought I would show it off!

Hope you are all enjoying the season, what's inspiring you at the moment?

  5. ***Blush*** Thank you so much!!! I can't wait to get this book... depending how long it will take for it to get here, hopefully I can finally take part in a sew weekly challenge! Love your seasonal table - unfortunately, we are almost ready for the winter decorations...

  6. Just discovered your blog via burdastyle and went down to this page. Please can you tell me how you made your autumn hedgehogs? I just love them and would like to know how to make one myself. Although, we might not have the tree bits (am I right) that they are made of here in New Zealand...
