Sucked In

Truly, the plan was to quickly run into the library to put in a request for a book, pick up the "Overlay" book recommended to me by Margaret, and be out in 10 minutes max, off to my primary destination. But I am a library junky, cannot cross the threshold and leave once more without perusing certain sections. I'm not sure, but I think I spent at least an hour looking around.

Admittedly, it's been awhile since I've been, and I've been feeling a bit of withdrawal as I've relegated my reading time to catching up on magazines. Ah well, the two extra books are more for looking at than reading. The one on the right is a slim book of photography from the mid 1970's, and yes, the photos remind me of the sorts of pictures I take myself for reference. The other is a 2006 surface design book with spiral binding so that it opens flat. I'm curious to see if it tells me anything that I can't already find in books on my own shelves.

Drawing with a bleach pen, then printing -- interesting. I've not found a bleach pen in UK but will be doing a "discharge" class with Bob Adams at the Festival of Quilts -- looking forward to that! You might try painting dishwasher gel onto the stamp (in fact I might try painting dishwasher gel onto a stamp -- and stamping some home-dyed fabric).
