Daily Paper Prompt # 30 “is to read a bit of a book on something creative”. This is not a challenge that poses any difficulty for me. I love to read creative books. Possibly too much ;-). I have a shelf full of art & quilting & other books that sits right at the top of our stairs – so it’s all too easy for me to grab one on my way to or from wherever I’m going…I wonder why the housework never gets done?!?
A book I have been dipping into since buying it at the Festival of Quilts a couple of weeks’ back is Jan Bode Smiley’s “The Art of Fabric Books”:
This book is right up my street! It combines two of my favourite things – books & fabric – and is a treasure trove of techniques and ideas with plenty of inspiration too. And it may explain two unusual charity shop purchases this week. An old sewing pattern:
And a baby’s board book:
Looking forward to getting started on some altered book projects incorporating these 🙂
Daily Paper Prompt #31 is to go back and finish any paper prompts from the month that you didn’t do! Well, as I only started with prompt #28, that may be a bit ambitious…but I do intend to stick with the prompts in September, and may go back and fill in some of the missing ones from August.
