i love books ...

Here are a few of my latest acquisitions ...


The Prints Charming book is, well ... charming. The book feels really fresh, which is nice after a lot of the sewing books out at the moment seem a bit the same. I really love the "Boys Room" section - boys are so often overlooked. The fabrics are lovely and there are some really unique projects to make in the book ...



Print & Pattern is a collection of lovely designers and snippets of their work. All beautifully selected and presented by this blogger - a great book of inspiration, and it includes some local talent like Lara Cameron (go Lara!) ...


I really love the simplicity and beauty of French textiles, so this book was a "must have" for me. There are lots of lovely projects and the photo's and styling are truly gorgeous ...


All of these books are available from bookstores. Have you picked up a favourite book lately?
Have a great Tuesday!

I just saw the Prints Charming one in the bookshop recently - I agree it looked pretty good. Its my birthday soon, you know what I will be asking for? Craft books of course!

I so want to make a cup of tea and sit down with your lovely new books! My heart is skipping beats with the gorgeousness of the French textiles one (sigh)

I borrowed that Linen and Thread book from our local library and loved it. Will have to have a look for the other two. Our budget doesn't include much room for books at the moment and might not for quite awhile yet if I have to replace my camera!

Oh I too love books. I'm holding back on craft books at the moment as I'm finding that I don't often actually use them for projects (rather for browsing and inspiration). Must say the three you have look wonderful though. Is prints charming mainly quilting?

You can never have too many books... enjoy, they look great.

I am checking the PO Box daily, anxiously awaiting the arrival of some new books that I have ordered.

You're the second person this week to say the Prints Charming book is good, must check it out.
Enjoy your reading.

Ooh, nice!
have you got a booklist tab on your blog? You mentioned some really interesting sounding ones in an earlier post about getting started... but I didn't write them down.

I like the arty photo too! But you look nice in the others as well!
