So today's post is totally self serving, but luckily I have a little something to sweeten the deal.
Recently the lovely Kirsten Johnstone of Assemblage who is one of our teachers, just released a collection of patterns for Shibui. I LOVE these. Everytime she releases something new I think something along the lines of "how does she come up with this stuff". She does clever, simple and gorgeous so very well. She has given me a full set of her hardcopy patterns to give away to you today. I have split them in two so two lucky people will win three patterns each. And all you have to do is help me out in the comments.
Which brings me to the purpose of the post. We have been away, and as such I have had no time to find new music. I have been listening to the one album for the last six months - The Head and the Heart self titled album from 2010 - over and over again. Which is fine because it is totally perfect*. But the time has come to find other options before I totally ruin it by over listening.
So the question today is - what is your perfect album for crafting? I don't mind what genre it is or how old it is and it definitely doesn't need to be any kind of cool. I really just need some new ideas. Even just perfect albums in general would make me happy….
I'll close the comments on Sunday night and draw the winners at random from the comments. You are welcome to enter from anywhere in the world.
So looking forward to your responses. I might do a little post to summarise your ideas.
* With the exception of song 9 but that is quibbling over detail ;).
