things I couldn't resist...

Isn't this the cutest face - this crochet cat is made by anne claire petit accessories and this is how it was made (text taken from the anne claire petit website): The anne-claire petit brand has an optimistic view of the world. In all aspects. From design to production. Cheerful, colourful and especially - made with love. A great deal of the crochet work is done in Asia. A warm bond has grown with various communities living in the countryside, where the women have passed on their handiwork techniques for many generations. Thanks to the crochet work they do for anne-claire petit accessories, the women are able to generate an income throughout most of the year - something from which the entire village benefits. The women work from home doing the crochet work for the new collections together with their neighbours. This brings about a feeling of security and working together that is expressed in all of anne-claire petit's accessories.

Anyone who reads my blog knows I've been on the look out for thick wool felt. I accidentally (honestly it was accidental) stumbled accross the Panduro Hobby shop in Copenhagen, and had to go in - and then had to buy this little lot: mmm thick wool felt.
It's my first day back at work today after my holiday so I'd better go and prepare - I have got that 'first day back at school after the summer holiday' feeling though :o(

Have a look at www.joggles.com - they have some thick 1oo% wool felt (from Napal?) and normal felt.
