While on vacation, I collected a few books and magazines. Take a look! Actually, the Machine Embroidered Seascapes by Alison Holt, was waiting for me when I got back home. I thought I'd include it too. It's an excellent one for those who are into thread painting. The Complete Feltmaking, More ... Texture with Textiles and Needleweaving were purchased at a second hand book store on North Avenue (Wicker Park area of Chicago). The Christmas with Possibilities is bright and cheerful with easy and quick to do projects. They are also easy to adapt to make other Christmas things and not just the ones shown. The Christmas one was a Joanne's purchase with a 50% off coupon. (Love those coupons).

As you can see, I have a variety of interests! Will I ever get the chance to do all in my 'want to do list?!' I can always try. . .


  1. What a great selection!!! I've added Laurie Swims books to my wish list... I've looked at that artful bird book quite a few times thinking it looks quite interesting and I think I'm going to look into that Machine Embroidered Seascapes for sure!
    Thanks for sharing your wonderfully interesting purchases!

  2. So much inspiration, so little time.....
