Introducing Day 5:
|What do you collect? Work with a collection of objects you have in your home (or borrow a friend's if you like).|
What do I collect? Nothing on purpose, lots of things in the course of just living my life. The first thing that came to my mind; however, was books. I love books. I'd love an unlimited budget (and space) to buy all the books I could imagine. Books are an obvious fit for the word theme I'm following, but what about the fabric theme? Today is one of those days I thought would happen, where I combine both themes. To create this challenge, I have used books from my craft stash. I have only two shelves of crafting, mainly sewing, books, which is quite restrained on my part, I feel.
The green book on the far right is very special.
It was given to me when I was in primary school by a family friend. It's called "The Australian girls' book of crafts, pets, sports and hobbies" by Prudence and Anthony Harvey. It's all black and white; no colour pages. It has over 80 topics and covers just about anything a girl could have been interested in in the 70s.
I credit it with being one of my earliest inspirations to be creative. Sadly, it never really inspired me to be athletic, although it covers nearly 20 sporting activities.
But, back to today's creative challenge. This is View 2:
