|A new home for books, fabrics and threads from a friend who is downsizing.|
The books, some of which I've always wanted, were free. These included many of the small but pricey Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn booklets from Great Britain, covering surface design and embroidery but on a cutting-edge level. At 24 pages, they normally sell for $20.95 -- no Amazon discount here -- an extravagance I never allowed myself. Lucky me -- eight of them for free!
In the photo above, you can see that our friend marked her books well with so many sticky notes upon notes they look like bristling, neon hedgehogs. It will take me a while to process these notes and remove them. But, through them, I'm getting to know our friend a lot better.
|I was happy to come upon our friend's hand-dyed fabrics, packaged into related colorways.|

Happy collecting and creating to you!
