Lately I have found myself becoming reacquainted with my craft books? Why? Because they live on the bottom shelf and because I have an intrepid explorer of a child who takes great pleasure in taking books off the shelves and playing with them!
I’m all for encouraging a love of books, but currently his love comprises:
This is entirely reasonable as he is eleven months old and doesn’t understand. However, the side effect has been that for the first time since he was born, I am really looking at them and thinking about them. Which is pretty exciting! I have decided to start a bit of a project of looking through to explore and read. Honestly, there are some I bought or had as a present but never had more than a cursory flip through!
A second project has sprouted from this new turn of events. In order to protect my lovely books, I plan to use my fairly amateurish sewing skills to make a book protection curtain!
Watch this space!
