Daily Pattern: Books

There are some things that stick with you for life. The Redwall series by Brian Jacques is one of those things for me. So when our topic was "books", I went for it.
Here is a pattern inspired by the illustrations inside those books. Every book had a map, and every chapter had a funny black and white drawing of one of the themes from the book. The books I have now are from my grade school days and are all yellowed and fragile. I guess that's the sign of a good one. Books for the ages!

    I was so sad when I heard that Jacques passed away a month or so ago. Redwall was such a huge part of my childhood, and Jacques always managed to release the new ones right around my birthday so I've been getting the books every year for a long time.

  2. Hi Caitlyn - Best books ever, right!? :) I was sad, too, Brian Jaqcues was a great writer and a huge contributor to my childhood nostalgia!
