Crafting with Nature in a Weekend Summary

Crafting with Nature in a Weekend: Over Twenty-five Inspirational Projects by Dorothy Wood

This book takes crafting to a new level with the innovative use of natural materials such as seeds, sea shells, small stones, dried and pressed flowers, egg shells, wood and pine cones. The 16 projects, plus numerous illustrated variation ideas, are divided into 5 chapters, exploring the use of materials gathered from various sources. The materials can be collected and prepared by the crafter, with step-by-step advice provided showing how to dry, press and store materials. Or they can just as easily be bought commercially, and a full suppliers listing is provided. Many of the projects have the advantage of being beautifully fragranced.
