I thought I'd go for a nautical theme, for my stripy twisted FIMO necklace at this month's Craft Club. Classic navy, white and red:

Basque linen love

Having just returned from the beautiful Pays Basque, we thought we'd share our favourite purchase with you:

Basque bread basket

There are three reasons why it's our favourite (1) it's made of Basque linen (2) it is the most simple design ... essentially a round piece of linen with ribbons to form each corner and (3) it's a bread basket so we get to use it every day!
