New Books

Layered Textiles: New Surfaces with Heat Tools, Machine and Hand Stitch by Kim Thittichai has just arrived. I've been waiting for this for ages so I'm going to take a break, have a coffee and indulge myself for half an hour. From a quick look-through, this is a great ideas book with wonderful illustrations to inspire you.

Also in is Colour in Art Quilts by Janet Twinn. This beautiful book is for quilters who want a deeper understanding of how to use colour in their work. It has practical exercises and inspiring examples.

Both these books incidentally, have lovely strokable covers!

I've been waiting for some of the A-Z Embroidery series for some time and these arrived today too.

Cakes for Gina

Here are the cakes I've been knitting and crocheting for Gina's Pink Friday. I'm not an expert knitter, but I did enjoy making them. The doughnut was from the 20 to Make 'Knitted Cakes' book, and the birthday cake from 'Gormet Crochet', both of which I have in stock.
