I've been up to our local library and got out some books to help in designing my sketchbook. I've reserved 'Creating Sketchbooks for Embroiderers and Textile Artists' by Kay Greenlees which I had a flick through at college last year. It's got some really inspirational ideas for general sketchbook making, as well as more specific stuff for textiles.

I got out a great book on Punchneedle work. I bought the tool years ago and this is a great excuse to have another go! The great thing about a sketchbook is being able to make lots of wee samples of ideas you have floating around, without having to commit to a bigger piece of work. The book is 'Punchneedle - The complete guide' by Marinda Stewart.

I'm thinking about using some of my leather scraps to do some type of reverse appliqué for the cover. I'm got lots of shades of brown, tan, cream and sand, so I can manage a really 70's kitschy design I think. I've got quite a lot of old Golden Hands magazines from the late 1960 to 1970's that I'm going to cut up for collage and text.

It's a great excuse to practice my drawing skills. I've got lots of lovely ornaments to draw, like my funky Bambi bookends with my Fruits Books in between. I'm hoping my son gives me enough time to go and play (it's the school holidays here in Scotland).

Does anyone else do textile work? I'm planning on making crochet samples and knitted samples to add in, as well as some of the canvas work and embroidery pieces I wanted to experiment with. I'm glad I paid the extra to have it digitized!

Yay! Other people to rave at without looking at me strangely! My theme is [your_name_here]. I'm rebinding my copy, mixed with many other papers. I was thinking about wallpaper samples, handmade papers I've made, different types of squared and graph papers, dressmaking paper, newspaper, sugar paper and some fabrics to stitch into.

I'm using my theme to refine my style of design. I'm setting up a small (tiny!) business online before Christmas making textiles. I'm focusing on cushion covers atm, but will branch out into blankets, patchwork quilts, art work and whatever else takes my fancy over time. So excited!!

It looks lovely on you! It's such a good pattern for so many different shapes. I should get on and make myself one. I sat in knitting group with Ysolda trying to figure out the short rows needed to fit my bosom years ago.

OMG! Soooooooo cute! My Yorkie is called Gizmo. He's a little bigger than Mollie and never manages to look for sweet and innocent. Love the model Smiley
