Afternoon lovelies. Thank you so much for all of your orders and love for the new book. I always get incredibly nervous when I release something new, so it means a great deal to me when you take the time to write and tell me you're enjoying it. Thank you, thank you! I am excited to start seeing pictures of your projects from the book - I just discovered Instagram hash tags and have been looking at all of your wonderful #whatdelilahdid projects. I can't quite get into posting pictures there myself but I will be sure to keep a closer eye on all of your makes there from now on. It makes me so happy to see them!
In shop news, I think I finally got the launch kit quantities right this time around to avoid disappointing people. They seem to be holding up quite well, though the Honey Bee Pin Cushion kits are almost all gone. I hope you have all managed to get the ones you wanted - if not you can find them here.
And today there is one more kit to add to the mix! Have you ever seen flags as pretty as those in my Arbour Alphabet? Love them. They are probably my most favourite project of all from the book and I knew I wanted to make a kit from them, but whenever I have tried to source 100% wool felt to make kits with in the past, I haven't been able to get the stuff without it making the kits prohibitively expensive. However, a chance meeting with Nicole Twena from Cloud Craft last September has now remedied that - hurrah! The two of us have teamed up to produce these beautiful flags as a limited edition supply kit, available in a bundle with the book or on its own (if you already have the book) from Nicole's shop.
These kits are seriously lovely, and you get a lot of bang for your buck - felt, waste canvas, threads, needle, ribbon... Each kit contains enough materials to make four flags (enough to spell out home/love/wish/etc.), or you can buy multiple kits if you want to spell out a longer name or word. I made the flags into 'Willow' name bunting for my newest niece at Christmas and it hangs beautifully in her nursery; the perfect new baby gift.
