Nothing can truly match the experience of seeing quilts of this caliber in person, but this gorgeously designed book comes close. Featured within are hundreds of works of art including appliqued and pieced quilts, wholecloth quilts, woven coverlets, and embroidered coverlets. The level of artistry and craftsmanship displayed in these quilts is stunning and certainly inspiring to contemporary handcrafters.

These patterns are inspired by vintage styles and focus on wearability and ease of use; these garments are intended to become heirlooms. From hats to sweaters to adorable bunny rabbit stuffies, the designs included have a timeless quality that will certainly last many years and through generations. Also included is a detailed guide to selecting yarn to use when knitting for babies.
I'm an amateur gardener and roses are the plant that I find most intimidating. Gardening for me is a go-with-the-flow activity in which I try things and hope for the best. Roses have always seemed to me to be too high maintenance for my style, but after reading this book I think I may give them a try. There are certainly some lower maintenance climbing roses featured here that seem quite doable.

Noah's compass : a novel by Anne Tyler features protagonist Liam Pennywell who wakes up in the hopital with no memory of being attacked in his apartment. This is a compassionate, humorous account of his quest to retrieve his memory. A former teacher, divorced twice, Liam searches to recover those lost hours and is led into an unlikely new relationship. An exploration of Liam's life and how he is transformed. Quintessential Tyler treatment of one rather eccentric man's search for wholeness. I have been a longstanding fan of Ann Tyler and Noah's Compass did not disappoint.
The nearly twenty patterns in this book all have two things in common: they are fitted to a woman's curvy shape and they have subtle feminine details that make them special. Also included are detailed instructions for tailoring and achieving the kind of fitted looks seen in this book. These garments are beautiful and fit a variety of body types; despite the cover, the models inside vary in size and shape and all the garments accentuate one's positive aspects.
No registration required.
