Useful book: Sew Up a Home Makeover

I just got ahold of a copy of the new Lexie Barnes book, Sew Up a Home Makeover: 50 Simple Sewing Projects to Transform Your Space. It was fun to see my fabrics featured on a few items, including this cute butterfly chair and pillow. The book is full of instructions for customizing everything with fabric: a roller shade, sofa slipcover, upholstered headboard, duvet cover, reversible placemats, marshmallow floor pouf, switch plate cover, window curtains... and a mere 42 other things. It's really too bad Lexie was running low on ideas.

Love those books. The problem is that I can read so much about doing things but end up doing nothing instead. But suddenly, one day, I remember something I've seen in a book or a blog and turn into a doer for a while.

Love your blog! The perfect mix for me.

Ah! Love this. There's certain individuals who haven't handed over a birthday present yet. I'm thinking I might drop a few heavy hints ;)
