Reading material!

one yard wonders

Ordered two books and I’m so excited about them.  One Yard Wonders is amazing!  I can’t decide where to start!! Bend the Rules with Sewing, I suppose the book I should have gotten first, is really neat too. I’m such a sucker for bags and totes and between these 2 books there are so many to choose from.

I also managed to sneak out to the thrift store on the weekend and found that neat little pineapple napkin holder. I thought it might hold some of my newly acquired craft and sewing books nicely. Seems it’s a perfect fit for my Amy Karol collection.

Treating myself.

Since I won a $25 mall gift card for my Tooth Fairy costume, I decided to treat myself to some books.  I also had a ‘save $10 if you spend over $40’.  So I picked up Sewing Green by Betz White and Bend the Rules with Fabric by Amy Karol.  Both for about $15!  Being a Mom is a funny thing sometimes, I had a really hard time spending the money on myself.  Even while walking around with the 2 books in my hand I would see a touchy feely book, or something with Thomas the Tank Engine, and start to wonder if I really needed to buy myself something.  In the end I did, but not without feeling weird about it.  Now to make a tea and sit and enjoy them!
