But FAR MORE IMPORTANTLY it will be my birthday a week after hers!!!!
Now my birthday is a wonderful opportunity for me to stock up with even more crafty goodness in the form of books and supplies because basically I end up doing the choosing for Mr Locket, my parents and my in-laws (it's a tough job but someone's got to do it)
This is where you guys come in....................
what I'd like you to do is share you most favourite craft books with me - the ones I really NEED to get - I may well have some of them already but I'm sure there are loads more that I simply HAVE to have!
(these are some (!) of the lovely books I already have - I know, there are loads, but when can you ever have enough craft books?)
For instance, is Amy Butler's In Stitches worth buying?
Should I get Apples for Jam?
What about Doodle Stitching? Which is the best Japanese book or magazine? Is it worth getting that cute retro children's sewing book whose name I have forgotten?
Or should I save all my money and buy a Gocco printer? Or do I need to be confident at drawing first?
What do you reckon?
I should be buying some decent clothes but I'm too fat for that and craft books NEVER make you feel fat do they?!!!
