Good friends, good books

Read any great books lately?....other than Twilight (not a twilight fan).... I would love to know, I'm always on the search for a good read. It makes times in airports and airplanes zoom by a lot quicker! I'm dabbling and having some more fun with fabric. I love that it is so easy to apply with the creatopia machine from xyron. They get fabric adhesive applied to the back and make my fabric a sticker! No sewing required! ....My sewing machine is occupied these days with Christmas projects....
I thought the fabric circles (cut out with my spellbinder dies) made the perfect kind of "gum drop" tree.
Reading Flopsey is from My Favorite Things...I just inked the bunny and not the books so that I could rest Flopsey under the gum drop tree. Colored with copics E40, E43, BG10, BG13, BG18, YG01, YG03. I did add a little white liquid applique for flopsey's tail...cute little puff of dimension.

Here is a little close up of the fabric. All Michael Miller fabrics. I got them to puff by adding a little cotton batting under them. I just cut the one size smaller of the circle nestie through my cotton batting. Easy!

Today was a "play" sort of day....I think I am avoiding my half done Christmas projects....

See you tomorrow for Taylor's sketch challenge! Yup! We are back at it this week!

Love the Reading Flopsie. I'm a librarian by trade so gotta love him right? Hmmmm - good books - dangerous question to ask a librarian. My favorite of the past year or so is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. It's historical fiction told in epistolary form (letters). I recommend it to everyone who's looking for a good book to read. Since I don't do vampires I'm not into the Twilight craze. Thanks for the great post.

I am also a "library lady" and I love this set, I have made book marks with "flopsie"
The Help by Katherine Stockton was very good and I am giving The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch as gifts this year, Inspiring!
