Wishlist Wednesday

Wishlist Wednesday is a bi-weekly feature where I talk about things that I’ve come across and really like. Some I might get, some are out of my range for one reason or another and some are just a brief flash of want that I don’t end up acting on. Wishlist Wednesday features books, games, fabrics, patterns, clothing, makeup and anything else that I’ve found and decided I really want.

I did consider making Want to Watch a weekly feature, however I decided that doing it on a bi-weekly basis would ensure that I wouldn’t get bored doing it as well as allow me to do other features without having to use even more time. Since it’s been awhile since I’ve done blogging, I didn’t want to bog myself down with too many commitments so keeping Wednesday as my feature day seemed like the best way of going about it.

This week’s Wishlist Wednesday features a little bit of everything, so I hope you’ll bear with no-patterns-neededme. To start us of, I have No Patterns Needed: DIY Couture from Simple Shapes by Rosie Martin.

I’ve looked at this before, however after watching The Fold Line’s review of it I pretty much decided that I needed it. For one thing the book feature models of various sizes, which is always helpful in seeing whether something might work for you or not. In addition it doesn’t require any patterns which is really neat and it has some really cute projects in it as well. It works with three basic shapes, as illustrated on the cover; the square, the circle and the triangle.

I’m probably going to get this, it’s just a question of when.

Next up we have something completely different, a video game, namely Rimworld, which I’verimworld been looking at on and off for a pretty long while already. It’s described on its steam page as such;

A sci-fi colony sim driven by an intelligent AI storyteller. Inspired by Dwarf Fortress and Firefly. Generates stories by simulating psychology, ecology, gunplay, melee combat, climate, biomes, diplomacy, interpersonal relationships, art, medicine, trade, and more.

I’ll probably get it, eventually, I’m not so much hindred by the fact that it’s in Early Access as much as I am by the fact that I have way too much to play already and the list isn’t exactly getting shorter.

theartofdressMoving into the realm of books, I’ve been eyeing The Art of Dress by Jane Ashelford for a little while now. I already have quite a few books on fashion, but I can’t quite resist getting more. Especially not when it deals with older fashion. This one I’m going to try and save for Christmas so it can be on my wishlist then. However, I suspect I might end up purchasing this for myself sooner rather than later. I want to look through i!

Another book I really want to get my hands on (though in this case I’m probably going to get it digitally), is A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas.
I’ve actually been wanting this for awhile, but it wasn’t available digitally for awhile and I’ve been trying to ween myself off buying physical fiction books in order to save some shelf space.

It looks and sounds really interesting and I’ve added the blurb below in case you’re interested;

Rhiannon Thomas’s dazzling debut novel is a spellbinding reimagining of what happens after happily ever after. Vividly imagined scenes of action, romance, and political intrigue are seamlessly woven together to reveal a richly created world . . . and Sleeping Beauty as awickedhtingshe’s never been seen before.

One hundred years after falling asleep, Princess Aurora wakes up to the kiss of a handsome prince and a broken kingdom that has been dreaming of her return. All the books say that she should be living happily ever after. But as Aurora understands all too well, the truth is nothing like the fairy tale.

Her family is long dead. Her “true love” is a kind stranger. And her whole life has been planned out by political foes while she slept.

As Aurora struggles to make sense of her new world, she begins to fear that the curse has left its mark on her, a fiery and dangerous thing that might be as wicked as the witch who once ensnared her. With her wedding day drawing near, Aurora must make the ultimate decision on how to save her kingdom: marry the prince or run.

That’s it for me for this week. What sort of stuff have you been looking at? Are you drooling over a pair of shoes? Desperate for a new book release?
