In other news, my cousin loved, loved, loved her new apron/smock and I was thrilled that my sewing skills were put to good use for something that she wanted. I still want to tweak the neckline and offer her some other over the head alternatives. Isn't that the way it is, when we sew we always know that we can improve our design, our technique, our fabric choices, etc.
Now for the week 3 giveaway. How about some books for your sewing reading pleasure? Once again, simply make a comment about which one appeals to you...or email me with your choice. Postage on me anywhere in the world this month. I'm going to extend this giveaway until Boxing Day, December 26 at 9pm EST to give more people time to enter.
Two books, both winners in my opinion...
The first one, by Susan Khalje, (who I was fortunate enough to run into last week at the Association of Sewing Professionals local session) is not just about fabric but is filled with her fine sewing details. Don't know why I have two copies in my library but this one needs to find a deserving home.
In a similar vein is book selection number 2, another Taunton Press publication by someone who wrote frequently for Threads Magazine and does the most exquisite embellishments. Again, I have two copies so here's one to teach you how to take a simple garment to couture.
Now I'm off to the Christmas luncheon with another one of my sewing groups today. So grateful to have so many creative people in my real life as well as on my sewing blog list. Here's hoping you have people who inspire, challenge and encourage you and your sewing projects.
