I hope you’ll forgive me for posting twice today, but Vintage Chica Eren had a fun idea that I wanted to get in on, and it means a-post-a-day for the next five days. This book junkie just couldn’t resist.
So here’s the deal – in honor of school starting up again (just over a week to go, here) we’re going to talk about the books that we’re loving right now. Each day features a different type of book, and today it’s craft books – a favorite genre of mine, if ever there was one!
I have to admit that this summer has not been as full of crafty goodness as usual, but I have at least been reading about crafts. My most highly-anticipated read has been Alicia Paulson’s Embroidery Companion. I totally want that skirt on the cover.
The book arrived here a few weeks ago, and I really thought I would dive right into it, but I got stalled by a few things:
- I wanted to get my photo-centric Etsy shop off the ground before changing gears, and
- I couldn’t find the embroidery hoops I picked up at a yard sale specifically in anticipation of this book.
So, I haven’t actually done any of the projects yet, but I do gaze longingly at the cover every couple of days. I plan to write up a full-blown review very very soon, but I want to hold off until I’ve done at least one of the projects.
What I can tell you is the photography is beautiful, and the words poetic, in true Posie Gets Cozy style, and even if I never do get around to embroidering my initials on a pillowcase, I will still be glad to have this book in my collection.
Now pardon me, while I go tear my house apart in search of those elusive embroidery hoops…
P.S. Go check out Eren’s original post here, and get in on the action if you like!
