Lucky books

Luckily youngest son is determined to extend his knowledge in music. The latest thing is studying for his grade 8 theory exam. To do this he apparently cannot do without two vital books from Amazon. Like the good mother I am I offered to order them immediately and while doing this I thought it was wise to reduce my wish list by a couple of books. They were delivered exceptionally quickly.

Now this one should get me using more ‘stuff’ (this is a technical term for things that I had to buy in the past few years which would be life changing) from the cupboards and drawers in the workroom.



And this one should effectively use up all my wool, threads, buttons and embellishments. (If they are the right colour of course, if not I will just have to buy more!)

Isn't great when you can order things from Amazon because your children NEED them and can then sneak in some goodies for yourself too! Enjoy your new treasures! Lucy x

I had to order some books for hubby a while back and a couple of extra ones just happened to jump into my virtual basket as I shopped!!

Very sensible - buying books that will enable you to use what you already have ;)

Hello Stephanie ! Sorry for this long silence, I have a lot of work preparing my next art exhibitions.
I hope you will find new sources of inspiration with these books and long to see your future works !

Well done on saving on postage!!

You are now included in my PIF as the first commentor hasn't a blog (but I'm still sending her something) so if you comment with your email address on my blog I can get your details. I have comment moderation on so nobody will see your address.

Fabric Art Workshop is an awesome book - I bought it too. The second one - stitched collage - looks great. I just might have to partake in that one as well. I have one of a similar title "Stitched Fabric Collage" which is great.

Love your blog - I'll be visiting again soon!

Both books look very exciting. I dare not go to Amazon again just yet :)
