I love books especially craft books. When my parents recently gifted me some money for my birthday, I knew craft books were at the top of my list. I buy most of my books from the Book Depository because they're are discounted and the postage is free even all the way downunder. Bonus! So here are the books I recently received.
|Lots of delicious motifs to keep me busy.|
|A nice easy key of symbols to learn so I can crochet from Japanese patterns one day.|
|One day I'll make me a skirt just like this. It's VERY different and I like that.|
|I love quilts, just another thing I have to be brave enough to take on.|
So much inspiration in these books. Thanks Dad and Mum.
Last week there was an altercation between a door, a cat and a figurine. The figurine was made by Nana who is no longer with us and as the figurine was damaged, it was very upsetting to the daughter it was bequeathed to. I gathered up the pieces from the floor and set about trying to put them back together. Tools needed for the job, glue, tweezers, toothpicks, emery board and lots and lots of patience.
|Doesn't look so good up close but from a distance it will pass.|
Yesterday I went down to Spotlight and bought some fabric to make some summer tops. If they turn out I might be brave and show them on here.
I hope you are having a fab weekend,
