Craft books and magazines are usually at the top of my Christmas wish list! There is something so inspiring about sitting down with a nice cup of tea and reading the latest craft titles. Over the years I have learnt so many new techniques from reading craft books. I have a list a mile long of projects that I plan to make one day.
Here are few new craft titles that arrived on our desk recently.
