Books and Baubles

Two books have just arrived:

In Scandinavian Designs in Red and White, there are easy-to-follow instructions and templates for 55 gorgeous items for your home, including pretty painted flowerpots for the garden, a patchwork tablecloth, aprons and napkins for the kitchen, hanging garlands, pennants and table decorations for the living and dining rooms, and beautiful gift ideas for your family and friends that include greetings cards, gift tags and a pretty heart-shaped box.

The best of Quilting Arts gives you exercises to help develop and improve your, machine- and hand-quilting, tips from today’s top award-winning quilters, inspiring profiles of prolific art quilters, a ton of techniques, advice for turning art quilting into a business, and ideas for creating the ideal quilt studio. Whether you are embarking on an art quilt for the first time or are already an advanced quilter, you will treasure the informative and inspiring collection of material culled from the first ten years of Quilting Arts magazine.

Another great kit from Buttonbag has also arrived today. With this kit you can make up to 12 felt baubles for your tree or to decorate your home. The pale blue, purple, red and green colours have a distinctive Scandinavian feel and can be decorated with ribbon and embroidery.

I've just had some good news from Brother which I'm hoping to be able to share with you soon.
