My birthday was a couple weeks ago, and through the miracle of Amazon.com and their wishlists I got some of the most amazing books !!!
Specifically this book : I [heart] patchwork by Rashida Coleman-Hale
My mother taught me to sew long long long ago. And I’ve forgotten everything in the last 20 years.
My mother-in-law (who also gifted me with this book) has graciously offered to re-teach me to sew!
Luckily for her, this book includes several pages at the beginning of very basic instructions and diagrams that will *hopefully* help close the gap in my practical sewing knowledge.
Plus the 20+ patchwork projects included in the book …. I’m in heaven!
I love the look of patchwork, I love the juxtaposition of different fabrics, I love the homey, comforting, handmade quality of projects like this …
I can’t wait to dig in!
