A new book!!

Last December 8th, my friend Colleen Babcock,  posted information about a Christmas craft book she just knew we all needed a copy of. (shame on her) 

Click here to see another book to add to your "must have" list.  What a great book it is and of course had to have it and it is worth every page to have it my library. It's full of great easy to do projects. From simple but well dressed and perfect Santa's to Snowmen and much much more... The author has designed things so that you can make IE: a row of angels or Santa's and use the same  fabrics on each doll and have them look different simply by alternating where the fabrics are used in the costuming.  I keep picking it up and leafing through page by page and repeat. It would take to long to describe everything in this book.

This year I thought I would beat Colleen to the new book promo. !!!  I got this book today by the same author as the one above. This designer is so talented. Her designs are so simple but it's the way she's used her fabrics, the obvious quality of her work and the choices of fabrics. The projects are all done in a simple way but they are so effective. Again her choice of fabrics, colours and the displays, make the projects in both of these books a joy to see and think about making. I can see you making gifts for everyone on your Christmas list just using these two books. I'm off to go through them again and think of who might like this or that.. !!!  Click here for more information.

  1. Romona you are so teasing me! I've managed not to buy this book yet, but I'm so tempted. I think I should give in. You are right that her designs are so simple yet so great. I do the same thing - look through her books over and over again. Really they are inspriring.
