I got the new sewing book, "The Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques" by Lynda Maynard in today's mail. A few of you already have it and have reviewed it. I've just flipped through it briefly. It's laid out well and has great photography. I'm anxious to sit down with it and a cup of something hot, and read, read, read, every page. It's a good go-to-bed book.
Here's the cover:
Look at these pretty pictures. It seems very well illustrated.
I won't get to my sewing room until the weekend, I don't think. The doctors don't want my husband driving for a few weeks, as the risk for another stroke is still great right now. So, I drive him to doctors (which I would anyway), and to his band practices and wherever he wants/needs to go. I don't mind. He would do it for me. And heaven knows, the situation could have turned out much, much worse. Meanwhile, I'll read about sewing, and figure out what my next JAM will be.
MI is having a thaw! Even though we have some rough winter weather to come, this little break with peaks of sunshine makes us feel spring is imminent!
