I really love my newest book . It is British textile designer Karen Nicol's very unique collection of objects, swatches, trimmings that - directly or indirectly - inspire her beautiful textile designs. They are personal, and unusual and show various techniques such as 'tufts' 'fagotting' 'pleats' and more. And though this book isn't a 'how to' book, it does explain how these methods are achieved and applied. All in a very unconventional, incredibly inspiring way. I can't wait to look at my own collection of stuff and see where it will take me. Here are some of my favorite pages.
