Inspirations 98

Issue 98 of Inspirations Magazine has just arrived.  As usual it is chock full of yummy projects. So Pretty is the theme and there is certainly plenty of that. Pretty Linen bags to hold your threads or bits and pieces, a 16th century inspired reticule with enclosed needlebook and scissor fob is decorated with summer flowers. Helen Stevens has a design of a spray of honeysuckle harbouring a finch and moth and using silk threads and there is a lovely wool blanket with toadstools and a fairy, and more from the amazing Hazel Blomkamp in the form of a Jacobean Cushion employing her trademark weaving and stunning colour shadings. A couple of very cute beaded frog purses and a stumpwork rose picture complete the line up. There is, as always, something for everyone.
