My life has been pretty crazy lately. Preschool ended the last week of May, then my 1st grader finished school on June 8th. Now that I'm back to parenting three children all day every day I'm positively worn out! Who has time for blogging? Here are some of my sewing room I shot on a whim the other day to tide you over until I start blogging again in earnest.
Tools of the trade needed for a pattern grading class I took recently.
Just some of my Japanese fabrics. My shelves could use a little organizing...
Books, books, books. I love sewing and crafting books! And let me tell you, there were lots of enticements at Quilt Market. I missed book signing on Friday because I was home with my kids. I missed out on Joel Dewberry's new book called Sewn Spaces and Kay Whitt's book Sew Serendipity, but I was utterly delighted to get a signed copy of Anna Maria Horner's book, Handmade Beginnings. The projects in this book are so lovely and varied. Even if you don't have a new baby you are sure to find something you'd like to make in this book.
Case in point, here are some close up shots of baby booties and dresses and jackets.
For the moment I would like to return to Kay Whitt's book before I delve into the other sewing books featured at Quilt Market. If you like to make jackets, skirts or dresses, this is the book for you. Here are some photos of Miss Whitt herself sporting her fabulous creations. I can't wait to get this book because sewing clothes is so much fun.
