A Good Read

A birthday gift of a book is always a treasure to be sure and this one is no exception, Slow Stitch, by Claire Wellesley-Smith.

A quote from the fly sheet …….

“Slow Stitch is a much-needed guide to adopting a less-is-more mind-set, valuing quality over quantity and bringing a meaningful and thoughful approach to textile practice.  Claire Wellesley-Smith introduces a range of ways in which you can slow your textile work down”………….

 

I am currenty working on a new project, which for the moment I have entitled “A Walk in the Park” and some of the ideas within this new addition to my library fit in perfectly.  It touches on dying with plant material from your local surroundings, which is something I have tried, but not too successfully.  However, using hints from this book, I will try again.

In no way am I suggesting you rush out and buy this book, as we all see books quite differently, but I am enjoying it and thought it useful to show this small preview.

Enjoy your weekend,

Marg
