Pretty New Books

A while back I entered a "sewing green" contest at STC Craft. I had entered the set of jammies I had made from vintage embroidered pillow cases. And I was one of the lucky winners. I was so excited, 'cause I got to pick any of the crafting books they carry. Yeah!!!

So, I picked Printing by Hand by Lena Corwin.

Can't wait to try printing some designs on brown or natural linen. I am thinking zippy pouches and clutches.

Also, because I had to wait a couple of months for my prize to arrive they included a free copy of Zakka Sewing as well.

Oh, I am in heaven. This book has been on my Wishlist for quite a while now.

Okay, that's a LOT of concentrated inspiration to receive in one day. I will have to wait a few days with starting any of the projects in these books, though. Yesterday, I finally received confirmation from the girls' Preschool that they indeed would like to have Snowflake costumes for all the kids for the upcoming Winterprogram: 16 Outfits to be ready by mid next week! I know I can do it ;-)
