A fair whack of stuff has come through my door in the last few weeks (I think I'm hoarding for the imminent UBC (unemployment by choice). Either that, or I just can't help myself. I'd wager a bet on the second reason, actually.
So I'm joining in with Tinniegirl on the-showing-of-the-loot. Unsurprisingly, most of this loot has been craft books. Oh stop it. Don't look so surprised.
I love felted goods, but the idea of me felting doesn't appeal. But I have been interested in the goings-on of Betz White regardless. Her second book, Sewing Green, has just been released to much fanfare, and having just obtained it I think the fanfare is justified.
A couple of the projects aren't to my taste (and this is my opinion only), but only a couple. The rest are very clever. Interspersed with the projects though are the best bits of the book - hints and profiles and examples of other crafters 'doing it green'. It's certainly an inspiring read, especially as I think every day about what I can do to live a little greener.
My favourite project is probably these aprons made from old men's shirts. Would love to make one, but that's another issue - too many craft books, not enough time!
