My Library card doing it's bussiness!

Hey there, how is everyone?
I have had a very productive day myself, food shopping done, washing done, pattern prepping done and now blogging!!

Today's post is all about what I have out in my Library card. I must be my library's worst nightmare... I find a book I like, maybe LOVE is a better word and i just extend it till I hit the full 3 months!

Here's a my current books....


This is a great wee reference book it has all the basics eg - Understanding the back of a a pattern envelope.. Too altering a pattern for a larger bottom. I think I could have benefited from more pics but overall... I like this book!


This book is F-A-B! I have this on my wish list on Amazon. It has so much info eg - Needles to use, care instructions, how best to cut, what thread to use... I could go on!! I LOVE this book!


This book is another ace book very inspiring, they are defo dresses that changed fashion. There will be quite a few you recognise! I LOVE this book!


AAAhhhh this is a book that will be in my book shelve in no time. It lacks enough pictures but the end products are worth the tinkering! I LOVE this book.

not your mama's CROCHET - Amy Swenson

This is a mixed bag, on one hand some of the designs are a bit dated... On the other hand it has a Eco bag made with carrier bags, a denim rug and a boyfriend jumper I have to make!! I like this book.. Alot!

This book is oh so inspiring yet another that will be winging it's way over to my book shelve... Very good for applique.. The cover is lush too. I LOVE this book!

the homemade home - Sania Pell

A quirky book to say the least! But I have to say the embroidery hoop pics, & tea cup plants are too cute. I like this book.

The LIBERTY Book of Home Sewing - Lucinda Ganderton

OOOOHHH this book is another on my wish list on Amazon... There are so many projects to do roman blinds, round cushion, tote bag, the rose cushion makes me squeak just a little... This book is a must.... I LOVE this book!

And last but not least.....

SUMMER AND THE CITY - Candice Brushnell

Who doesn't like a little trash!! I LOVE this book!!

So there we have it... My library card at work.... And what a good job it has done! I have these books at the side of my bed, I have to say never tire looking at them! Some of the links have a look inside section, I suggest you have a wee peek to see what all my rambling is about...!

Does anyone have any good books they are reading at the mo?!?!? Fancy sharing in the comments... I would like a few new books to faun over!!

Not such a creative space more or a reaserch space!!


  1. Our library only allows 28 days with one renewal if no one else is waiting for it. So yes, almost 2 months. But I often will check it in and request it again as soon as I can.

  2. Ooh - looks like there are a few there to look out for at our library. We aren't allowed to extend books at all, which means you have to photocopy if you find a patter which is going to take you more than 2 weeks. Mind you, I like to review books and if I really like them, they go on my Book Depository wishlist.

  3. I love looking at piles of creative books people get out. Our library is 28 days but no extensions.

  4. oooh lots of great reads there- that liberty book sounds divine xx

  5. Great stack!
    My first one open would be Handmade Home. I am yet to check out our local library (just moved house) but it is only one block away so theres no excuse.

  6. Great selection. Thanks for the brief review of each - I'm off to check some of them out on Amazon.

  7. We visited the library for the first time in ages the other week and I had a ball too! x

  8. What a great collection! I love the same thing about my library card. Sometimes I want the books for just a little inspiration and that's it, and in my tiny apartment I unfortunatly cannot be buying book after book or else I'd run out of room!
