I managed to grab some crafty and creative books at the library today. It was such an enjoyable experience sewing the baby pyjamas on Sunday and I’m hoping that the Amy Butler’s Little Stitches for Little Ones will provide more inspiration. I have had a quick flick and whilst there is more of the same there does seem to be a couple of unique projects in there for me to have a closer look at. I also borrowed Crochet edgings and trims which at first glance looks really good – the patterns are both written in words and symbols. The book is certainly filled with some lovely crochet, whether or not I’m up to the task is another matter. Creative Digital Photography also looks inspiring – 52 weekend projects is just the inspiration I’m in desperate need of with my ‘a photo a day’ project. The death of my DSLR’s shutter has been a real blow and I’ve been rather blah about the project every since. Still, I’ve not let it beat me and while I wait for my new camera I’ve been playing around with the point and shoot and more recently the mobile phone. At one level I know this challenge will in the longer run make me a better photographer but I think it is a lesson I will appreciate more in hindsight.
To immerse yourself in creative inspiration head on over to Kirsty’s.
