Library Night

It’s Tuesday already! My latest acquisitions, on loan of course…


Mary Engelbreit has a new book out called Sew, So Cute! for those of you who miss her magazine. Sewing projects for baby, home and gifts in her signature style of blooms, polka dots and witty sayings.

BH&G Gifts To Make is an older book and I am specifically after a few of the project ideas listed in there. I check that one out at least twice a year. Great gift giving ideas!

The other two books I am looking forward to delving into. Haven’t seen either of these before and nothing like a hot cup of tea and a new book, or in my case, books!

I just finished reading Made From Scratch: Discovering the Pleasures of a Handmade Life by Jenna Woginrich. An excellent read! Her tales of being young and single with a desk job and a city apartment, she sets out to establish a more self sustaining way of life by learning homesteading skills. If you’ve ever dreamed about being a farmer, this is a MUST read. From raising chickens to bee keeping to gardening to teaching herself fiddle playing, she writes about her journey towards self-reliance.

Sorry, no pictures from my favorite thrift store this evening. I did score a set of Tarot Cards that I’ve been looking for, to collage with!  Yeah!

Hope you had a happy Tuesday!

  1. You have inspired me. I just placed 20 holds! BTW is Made from Scratch worth owning. I have picked it up several times at the bookstore but didn't buy it. Our library system doesn't have any copies. Have fun reading and creating. Big hugs, Pam
