(On the subject of books, I finished the 'Grace' memoir mentioned the other day. Enjoyed the first half of the book more than the 2nd, but if you a dedicated follower of fashion you might get more out of the name dropping and insider info than me. :-) My other problem with the book was the excessive thinness of some models featured. So gaunt and bony. I know that's not the author's fault, but she's still part of a business that promotes extreme thinness .)
Onto to other things, have you ever tried to write instructions? Sooo difficult. Even the how-to for something as basic as a pin cushion is driving me nuts. It does gives me a new appreciation of needlepoint authors though. The reason I'm doing this is I'm trying to do a mock-up of a needlepoint kit. Seeing how much it would cost me to produce, estimating what I'd need to sell it for. Questions present themselves: should a needle be included in the kit? Backing fabric too? The purchaser won't expect a kit to include filling, would they? Has anyone else tried to make up a needlepoint kit ? Any tips or knowledge you learned along the way would be much appreciated.
