Lovely books

I don't often buy books - working at the library gives me easy access to a fantastic variety, but lately I've had to succumb to some purchases.
This first is to feed my lettering habit.
Get a preview of what's inside here. As well as lettering it has great ideas for doodles including borders, flowers and other simple patterning ideas. It's good for me as a beginner doodler! Check out some of Joanne Fink's work here. She also has some great free video lessons and step by step drawing instructions here
This other purchase is going to be hugely useful for me
Here's a sneak preview inside at a couple of pages.
As you can see, many applications for quilting designs, stamp carving, doodling... you get the idea.
Highly recommended.
And my most recent fiction read was lovely - check it out at your library :-)

We may be very 'bad' for each other - planning on ordering at least two of these books - maybe all three!
