There’s nothing like a good book in the miserable weather.

I’m a huge fan of craft books. Don’t get me wrong I use the internet often to find inspiration and there’s a big part of me that likes browsing through books picking my projects and then doing it at my own pace.

So this week I’ve decided to top the books up with some really fab books and I’ve picked a few to show you.
