Don't chuckle at me! Those of you who know me - or who have read my blogs for some time will immediately realize that this is not my usual art form!

When the publisher sent this book to me for review my  immediate reaction was - oh no pompoms! I do not like pompoms; never have and I thought I never would! Then, as I turned the pages of this charming little treat of a book, I realized that although these little cuties are made from wool pompoms, they aren't pompoms as we normally think of them. These are haute pompoms!

The author, Myko (think mike-o") Diann Bocek, is a Beatrix Potter fan and her pompom creatures are born from Beatrix's delightful whimsical creatures. Beatrix Potter also filled my childhood with delight and I remain a huge fan of her work to this day.

If you can, for a moment, consider what Beatrix Potter's creatures might look like as pompoms you will get an idea about what's in this charming little book.

I am going to give making these a whirl - they are too cute not too. These haute pompoms are all made from luscious wool yarn and roving and they become shaped like whimsical creatures. Not my typical type of art making - by these are just too adorable not to give them a try.

Don't be put off by the word pompom - if you are like me - this book really deserves your attention! If you are already a pompom lover then you have to have this book.!

I'm not sure how Lark manages to produce such high quality, visually beautiful books - but this one is a bargain!
