I've restarted the hat that I frogged a couple projects ago, purely based on principle and not because I need another hat :). In case you haven't seen the book this pattern comes from, oh you simply must!! There is a beautiful granny square purse in there that I will make one day. Wanna see?
|From the book, Gifted|
I don't need to tell fellow book lover's about the magic that stories bring into our lives. Today, droves of fans will pay their $10 ticket to see the final installment of Harry Potter, to see the story they vividly imagined breathe its way onto the screen.
Most of us who live in our books never want the story to end. We want to be a part of it somehow and we hungrily look for that next story that will draw us in and keep us there for awhile.
Movies, tv shows and series, even video games do their best to meet our high demands for giving life to the stories we hold dear. Some succeed, some fail. But what I want to share with you is a whole new magical dimension added to the life of a story, with the help of a gifted ex-animator from Pixar. Meet the The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Lessmore. Originally an award-winning children's animated short film, it has now been released as a storybook iPad application. It allows you to join in the story as it is read along to you. Please take the time to see this magic...
Its gorgeous visual perfection, our ability to participate and engage, and then the beautiful story itself... all of it is pure magic. Created by award-winning animator and illustrator William Joyce and Moonbot Studios, this application I believe will forever change how we use digital children's books and how we read stories to our children.
Happy Yarn Along today, can't wait to stop by yours :)!
