I splurged a little on books not so long ago.
Cheap Chic by Emily Chalmers and Ali Hanan:
I’ve owned Flea Market Style by the same authors for a few years now and never tire of browsing its pages. And I can see Cheap Chic is going to be the same.
Creative Walls by Geraldine James:
Each photograph in this book is jam-packed with interesting details. And I’m always on the look-out for ideas on how to display embroidery, so hopefully this’ll come in handy.
The Handmade Marketplace by Kari Chapin:
I’m about halfway through this gem of a book, and am going to have to read it again and again to allow all the golden nuggets to sink in.
Made in France: Blackwork by Sonia Lucano:
Technically, I bought this for my mom. But I haven’t given it to her yet and I keep finding myself flipping through it. I’ve never done blackwork, but Sonia tempts me with her contemporary designs.
