It has been a busy week, again, so we are sitting down and watching an old episode of Frasier.I have seen this before so I can write while I listen.
In the past couple of weeks I have found three really interesting new books. The first is Make Your Own Books & Boxes by Peter Baumgartner published by Search Press in 1996. It was originally published in German in 1994. This edition was translated by Clare Turner. I have never managed to find such a useful book on the subject. This is one that I will use often.
The second book is by Meg Evans,
Hand-Stitched Boxes. This edition was published by David & Charles
This has so many wonderful projects and easy to follow instructions. I can see one of my stitched gardens on the top of one of these boxes.
I bought the third book just because the cover looked so interesting. I am not really interested in making lace, well I wasn't until I started reading this. Anyway here are the details. Contemporary Lace Making by Constance Nieuwhoff. Published by Van Nostrand Reinhold in 1975 and translated from the Dutch by Danielle Adkinson.
And now for something completely different. Last week I broke an egg to find it has two yolks. This is a rare occasion these days although I remember as a child our own chickens often produced double yokers, as we called them. Anyway this evening as I was preparing a quick meal I was thrilled to see two more and couldn't resist taking a photo. I know it is a bit off the track but it shows how easily I am impressed.
