I came across this inspirational home interiors book in my local library, it has so many wonderful photos, evoking different moods and eclectic interiors that I just had to share it.
I love ethnic and folk art textiles, particularly indian block prints.
I thought the above colour scheme was amazing and the title Travellers and Magicians just conjured up lots of images in my mind that I could use in my artwork.
Collections of scraps and fragments, little treasures, is a passion of mine. I love displays of them together and remembering the stories behind them, or imaging stories around them.
I found this wonderful knitted cardigan in a book called Power Cables by Lily M Chin, again in my library. This pattern has entered my 'if I ever find the time to knit it' knitting list. Suspect we all have one of these lists. It's ages since I did any cabling and yet I do so love it.
PS Is anyone else going to, and getting excited about, the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace this weekend? I went for the first time last year and I can't recommend it highly enough, it is just so inspirational and you can buy all sorts of mixed media goodies (been saving my £2 coins so I can have a splash out without feeling guilty).
