This was going to be titled 'Oh no, you left her alone in a bookstore, with money?!' But that was too long.
A couple of hours ago, I felt it was a lovely day, and decided to venture downtown to the bookstore. I planned to just buy two semi-specific books; one on amigurumi, the other was to be a knitting stitch dictionary.
I returned home with one thing from my original plan, and two other books I bought on a whim.
-I bought The complete idiots guide to Amigurumi by June Gilbank (Planet June)
-The Handmade Marketplace by Kari Chapin
-And a graph paper sketchbook.
I am happy with my purchases so-far, I'm just upset the store pretty much didn't have any variety of stitch dictionaries(meaning, they did, but they were in huge 50+$ compilation books with embroidery stitches and crochet stitches). Ah well, there are more bookstores to explore in the future :3
And when returning home, I found a lovely letter from a friend in the mailbox.
Man, I love sending and receiving mail ; w; It made me happy.
How is every one? Get any new books? Got any crafty book recommendations?
Take care, and Happy crafting!
PS- <3 I'm glad you guys like the lower eye placement on the octopus! I'll keep it in mind for the next ones I make!
