i got a big fat amazon gift card from my family for my birthday
had it all spent in about five minutes,
and just got themmmm!
great food fast by martha stewart
sew u home stretch by wendy mullin of built by wendy fame
and printing by hand by lena corwin
(i also got a subscription to lucky mag, but i have to wait for that one... boo.)
martha stewart food is sometimes too fancy, but i think this book is a little more manageable than most. and dangit all, i know i married a chef and all but i want to learn to cook! hahah
this book is all about sewing knits, like jersy dresses and sweatshirts and things, and i am sooo excited. i've never really sewn knits before and my aunt gave me a serger over thanksgiving, so now i can learn how to use it!
i've always wanted to learn how to print and this book has all kinds of different techniques. and when i saw it at my friend cami's house and went through it page by page, i was sold. printing my own designs on my sheets and pillows and everything in between? yes please.
who needs a job after i graduate when i have all this to keep me busy!?
hahah, right? ;]
