The crafty library grows

Two new acquisitions for the craft manuals section of my library: Fabric Jewellery by Teresa Searle and Sew What! Skirts by Francesca DenHartog and Carol Ann Camp. I know I should keep my library as reduced as possible, considering that I'm probably moving soon (and internationally) but I love useful, pretty books I can refer to many times, and I think these two are definitely of that kind. A peek into Sew What! Skirts: And into Fabric Jewellery:

My fabric treasure

This morning, happiness in the shape of fabric. I received my latest order from Contemporary Cloth. Good price, super fast shipping. I'm looking forward to making things with it!

Charity shop finds

I found these at a local charity shop here in Dublin. 'Irish Fine Earthenware Connemara' is written on the back. I think they used to be very popular in the 70s. I was looking for information about the manufacturer on the internet but I couldn't find anything. I love that retro olive green glaze and the motifs of the border... Is it the beginning of a collection?
