it's getting there...

Another WIP pic I think I should be able to finish off the sewing tonight, and maybe do the backing tomorrow night.

For my birthday, I was given an amazon voucher. Anyone who has been to my house knows that I have way too many books, however I decided to buy a few more and they arrived todayA couple of these books I'd seen a book shop a few weeks back, but didn't buy them because they are much cheaper on Amazon.

Here are a few pics from 'play pen - new children's book illustration'

I have the Katherine Sorrell book - sometimes I just sit and look through it to cheer myself up! x

ohhhhh...i love lee child!
in answer to your question, no, nobody as far as i know sells gocco stuff in the uk. i bought all my inks from northwood studios (google them, can't remember website address, sorry) i paid using paypal and it got to me in around a week. fairly reasonable postage - it's calculated when you go to pay and is based on weight. i was really impressed, and i'm very impatient! good luck :)

Your books look great and you can really see the Japanese import influence on the children's illustration can't you -looks like the fabric we all eagerly buy! Lucy x

I just bought moki for my daughter and she loves it! The last illustration is from that book, and in that picture moki visits Finland :)

I love your mom's present and am anxious to see it all together.

Looking at your stack of books makes me drool. Books are my weakness. I like Lee Child... always a good read. The book about illustrations looks like fun. I have an Amazon order ready to go... I'll check out that book and see if I should put it on the order.

Thanks for sharing!
