I just started a new job, which is both exhausting and putting a major cramp in my blogging style—but I wanted to slip in a quick post today to tell you about my latest book buys. Today, thanks to some B&N gift cards I'd been hoarding, I picked up a copy of The Colette Sewing Handbook and one of Oliver + S: Little Things to Sew. Colette is one I've been aching to get because it teaches you the basics beautifully. There's something so classic about the style, and I can't wait to make each of the 5 patterns! Oliver + S is one I've had my eye on in order to start making baby gifts for my friends. The projects in here are absolutely gorgeous and a little more special than the run of the mill baby stuff you'll find all over these days. I can't wait to dive into both.
So that's what I'm up to—reading, but never really getting time to sit down and sew. Alas! What about you? Have you found any good crafty books lately?
Ps. Oliver + S has some fantastic free patterns online!
