Lã e Flores :: Yarn and Flowers

Uma dos sítios obrigatórios para quem visite o Reino Unido e goste de crafts é a secção de retrosaria do John Lewis. A minha mãe perdeu a cabeça com as lãs e comprou alguns novelos para tricotar camisolas para o próximo Inverno. Eu não resisti a fotografá-los em cima da lareira, num arranjo que mais parece um anúncio à Debbie Bliss que um exercício de styling
If you visit the UK and are into crafts, you shouldn’t miss the haberdashery department in John Lewis. My mother got quite excited with all the fabulous yarn and bought some skeins destined to become sweaters for next winter. I couldn’t resist photographing them on the mantlepiece; only it seems more of a Debbie Bliss ad than a styling exercise…

    I discover John Lewis last time I went to London, and as you say, they have lots of beautiful things for crafting. I bought some fabrics but I wanted them all!
    Lovely pictures!

    Is John Lewis, like our Michael's or Joanne Fabrics in the United States? Wondering if anyone know?!

    Mary Ann,

    John Lewis is a department store, just like Macy's. Only it happens to have a great craft section, which is especially good in yarn.

    Oh, thank you, so very much, Concha!
    We have a Macy's about an hour away from my home. Oh, “IF ….. ONLY” they had a lovely craft section like John Lewis, how happy I would be!
