Oooh...I love the library! I am always falling for one or two or twenty books in there. Librarians are some of the most intriguing people around, and so helpful. They usually inquire as to whether I need help carrying my 17 lb stack back to my car. Dear souls.
Yes, so anyway, last time I paid a visit, I found this fantastic gem. It has a nebulous "Scando-Japanese" look, with cool and cozy colors paired in a most pleasing way. And the projects are darling! In most cases, I will check out a book, salivate over the designs, and return it before I can actually realize any of my inspirations. This time; however, I am working on the party bag. Sewn from plummy shantung, lined with a flowery print, and adorned with little ruffles, it is quite a treat. I'll post pictures when I have it done.
