How are things around your place? We are currently breathing a big sigh of relief as a cool change has finally hit and we are getting some lovely cool wind through our house after a stifling night of tossing and turning. ( No air con in our place). I have opened all the windows and doors very wide and am hoping to flush all the super hot air out and replace it with fairly warmish air instead!
Much more liveable!
Meanwhile, I am sharing another of my recent booky acquisitions
with you, Made By Hand by Lena Corwin. Have you seen this around the book shops, it's been out for a while I think?
This is a beautiful, stylish book, it has a lovely calm, clean feel, that makes me want to go and declutter my work space right away!
Oh, and the projects are gorgeous too! There are great clear instructions with plenty of photos showing you tricky bits, so things seem very doable to me. I like that there are many different crafty contributors to this book, lots of different crafts are covered and they are all very beautiful.
It looks good doesn't it?
I am going to have a go at these coiled bowls, I have a big box of yarn scraps that I think would make lovely bowls, so this is on my crafty agenda for the coming year.
There are also lots of sewing, printing and dyeing projects in here, something for every crafty taste me thinks!
Loads of inspiration, I have picked quite a few other projects I'd like to have a crack at.
So, have you come across any inspiring books recently?
Well, I am off to go and do a bit of crochet myself, it's still too hot to do much, and too windy for the beach, so inside relaxing is the call of the day. The housework will have to wait, I can hear a long cool drink calling my name!
Thank you for all the lovely comments you left on my last post about the harlequin blanket, you are all very kind! The crafty community is such a supportive community, I love being a tiny part of it! Talk soon xxxxxxxxxxx
PS. This is not a sponsored post in any way, I bought this book from a bookshop because I liked it, and am sharing it here because I thought you might too!
