I couldn't believe my good fortune earlier this week when I won this beautiful book from a giveaway on the inspirational Assemblage blog. Kirsten is the very talented designer of the sev[en] circle pattern that I enjoyed knitting recently, so I thought that any book she recommended would be a winner!
I haven't been able to stop gazing at it since it arrived in the post. There are instructions for techniques like pintucking and smocking.
Gorgeous photography, lots of cute projects to make.
And just the sort of beautiful sculptural forms that I love. This one will be going on my ever-growing 'to do' list.
And, perhaps most importantly for me, there's the section on that thing I want to try but have been too chicken to in the past... quilting.
Hopefully this book will help inspire me in that direction, just as that other lucky win kick started my knitting...
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
