I should probably stay away from second hand books for a while. I mean really, I am getting quite a stash happening and am not sure I will ever be able to use them all.
Of course though, whilst visiting the local school fair, I could not help but notice these lovelies piled amongst the old toys and books. And I mean REALLY would you leave them there when they were only $1 each and the two hard cover books were brand spanking new inside like they had never even been read?
No? Me either! The one on the left is one I have wanted to buy for a while but never got around to buying, so I was pretty chuffed to find it there to say the least. The middle one is full of lacy loveliness. With loads of lace collars and edging ideas. My fingers are itching with excitement!
The last book was purchased with the thought of me finally getting around to trying embroidery. Well Im not sure when I will find the time but I am hoping to get around to it ONE DAY! If not there are plenty of other needlework things to do in there. :-)
I also bought this cook book as it has loads of yummy sweet recipes and even a few interesting food ones. I have been planning for ages to have a go at making one of those altered books but thus far have not had the heart to do it.
I am such a book lover that the thought of tearing out pages, covering them with glue and such, kind of puts me off. However, I am all for the idea of having a book that is FULLY useful. I have so many recipe books that go largely unused and numerous favourite recipes on pieces of paper or online that I would love to put together in ONE book. So its going to happen eventually, as soon as I get my head around it. And of course find a spare 100 hours or so. :-)
My knitting and crochet projects are coming along well this week. There has been knitting in the car, even though I said I would not do that again. My first One a Day project is almost complete and I have been working on the little Melon Daisy cardigan too. Will try and do a picture update soon.
What have you been up to this week?
Hugs and smoochies all xoxoxox
