During the Holiday break, while everybody around here was busy playing Wii, I got myself a little something on line. These two books are to die for..."Alabama Stitch" beautiful projects, stories of the happiness in sewing tradition, and astonishing pictures. I can't wait to make this skirt. Isn't it marvelous? The more I look through the book the more I want to make the projects. The fact is, that sometimes buying clothing is kind of frustrating for me. I think I have more of a personal style, or a comfort zone, or maybe it's that I have to fix everything I buy. I'm kind of short (5'2",) but this skirt will for sure do...
"Printing by hand" by Lena Corwin will be the cure for my decaying printing skills. I've been missing the etching press for a long time and I really don't see it coming back any time soon. This book is all about printing, stamping, silk screening...on fabric. What can be better than that. Looking through its pages I feel like grasping air after a big cry, like there is hope for me...so dramatic.
On a different note, I want to thank you all for your hugs and get well wishes for Fairy #2. She is much better now, talking, and smiling much more. Thank you lovely ladies!!
That's all for today, my girls are done with their tv show, so back to reality.
