Last weekend saw Lifeline's bi-annual Bookfest in Brisbane so of course I couldn't resist dropping in.
My best score was this gorgeous "Think Pink" book from fabric designer Tricia Guild. A friend had lent me her copy a couple of years ago but at $8 it was time to have my own.
Who wouldn't be inspired by images and colours such as this?
I'm always looking for vintage craft books and was overjoyed to find this beautiful binder complete with lift-out pages and embroidery patterns.
Although I won't have time to take up embroidery, I am getting ideas for new screen-printing designs.
I also bought a couple of vintage home decor books. I didn't make it to Bookfest until Monday so the best books had been picked over but I'm happy with the quality of my finds.
