Some crafting inspiration for a leisurely Summer!

The holiday season is perfect for relaxing at the beach and being with family. And for many of us it is a time to finish off a crafty project or perhaps begin new ones. 
l'uccello has so many lovely fabrics, haberdashery items and  books to delight and inspire your creative spirit this Summer
