home-bound reading

good afternoon!  working from home this afternoon…the windows are open, the soft wind chimes outside the window, the overcast sky.  we have a winter weather advisory that starts this afternoon…so mom is outside tidying up some of her flower beds before the rain comes.

we have some new books that have arrived…perfect reading material while we spend the month hanging in our sewing studios and ordering online goodies.

right now may favorites are…

Civil War Quilts…yes that is Dear Jane…no there is not a pattern for it.  however it is full of historical information along with gorgeous pictures of vintage quilts from the era…even some quilt block patterns to get you in the spirit of the times.

Country Style Quilting…i love this book…the projects, the colors, the photography…look at that cover quilt…a little bit of EPP and a little bit of appliqué…scrumptious!

Embroidered Country Gardens…delve into a world of embroidery…dig out those long forgotten DMC skeins, that let’s face it are probably in a big ball, and get stitching.  these designs are absolutely gorgeous and work well for adding a little embroidery to bags, pillows, fobs, scissor cases, and framed pieces.

Patchwork Gifts…sweet little projects to fill your days…make a bowl of mushrooms, a little bag, baby quilt, or coaster set.

the books are available online…

happy Thursday!  stay home…stay safe!
