Bit of an invasion today! Well, it is the school holidays....so my table (actually, our dining table) is a shared workspace. Youngest is continuing her quest to build the biggest ever lego city, but there are limitations - how much she can physically fit onto her two thirds of the table top, and the biggest factor....how many bricks we have! Not enough, apparently! She's realised that low-rises will spread the bricks further, and I'm relieved because then I don't run the risk of accidentally bulldozing prized tower blocks...you know how that goes!
So, what's on my desk today? It's all looking rather tidy, don't you think? My new best friend, the computer, (I admit it...that's a bit sad!) is displaying my new etsy product.
I must mention those two books - such inspiring reads, both of them: the bottom book is 'three-dimensional EMBROIDERY' by Janet Edmonds. Joyous items made by manipulating, painting and stitching various fabrics - art, all of them. The book on top is 'the art of embroidery / inspirational stitches, textures and surfaces' by Francoise Tellier-Loumagne. This is an absolute feast for the eyes in glorious technicolour - amazing close-up shots of unbelievable stitchery, based on images from the natural world and everyday life. I could eat this book, it's so fantastic.
