Stitch


Now, so you don't think I'm nothing but a grumpy old bag, let me show you this beautiful book. I've studied the pictures and read it cover to cover since I unwrapped it on Christmas day. Stitch by Ann Packer showcases the work of many of New Zealand's textile artists. See how many beautiful pages it has? Look at that beautiful satiny padded cover!

It's beautifully photographed, and gives us a glimpse of the work and life of each artist. Lovely!

happy New Year, pixie. That book is lovely - a weaving friend has it and lent it to me. We need more books like this.
