I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
This week's space is filled with a stack of books. They are on loan from my local library and look well-read. They have serious titles like "Metric pattern cutting" and "Pattern making for the home couturier". I am reading about the basics of creating patterns.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm under no illusion as to the complexity of pattern-making - I don't really see a line of Hoppo Bumpo evening-wear in my future. I am, however, enjoying looking at how pattern pieces for various styles are created and how shaping is achieved. Its handy to have a point of reference when you are altering and sewing from commercial patterns.
That said, I'm enjoying the texts with a certain amount of caution. You see, upon spying books full of beautiful line drawings, 3-year old Bargy gushed: "Sank you for borrowing the colouring books, mummy".
Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space today (or to join in), head over here.
