My craft library is becoming quite extensive and I love adding new books. But it seems to come in waves; I can either find lots of books I like all at once or can go months without finding any at all. Lately it seems that it's a case of 'lots'!
My latest purchase is Zakka Handmades by Amy Morinaka. This is another book I saw before we went away and then waited until we returned to buy it. I first saw it as a sew-along on different blogs and loved the little projects. I say 'little' because I think they are all really achievable and don't require a lot of time or fabric.
Someone reminded me yesterday that Christmas is approaching (this thought was reinforced at the supermarket where they were putting out some Christmas 'things'). I always say that I will make little gifts for people but usually only manage one or two. This year I'm hoping to do better and this book has lots of good ideas for gifts. For example the key cover and the mug rug complete with 'stamps'. Lots of good ideas.
This time it's New Colonies by Nancy Gere.
There are some lovely red prints here and I also like the vibrant yellows.
Will definitely have to make something with all of these fabric club bits.
In the meantime I'm still quilting the Makeshift Garden quilt. I'm having one of those weeks when I don't seem to have time to sit and sew and it doesn't look like the next couple of days will be any better. It's very frustrating.
Until next time
