New Books

I treated myself to a couple of new books this holiday weekend...
The Dressmaker's Technique Bible
by Lorna Knight
Weekend Sewing
by Heather Ross

Weekend Sewing is one of the few project books that completely captured my interest.

I want to make everything in this book!

It has 40+ inspirational patterns for lovely items such as summer dresses, shirts, pajamas, a small clutch, slippers, baby clothes, bags, kitchen linens and lots more...

The Dressmaker's Technique Bible is less for pleasure and more for avoiding headaches during projects ;)

Shopping was extra fun with a 40% off Borders coupon
a Gift Card that's been taking up a slot in my wallet since Christmas...

I made out like a bandit.
