Happy Holidays!

Best of luck all those traveling today- we are apparently getting snow here this evening, which has the kids VERY excited! I wouldn't mind a bit of the white stuff as well. :-)

I received some fantastic sewing books this year, so I'll be happily tucked away under a quilt reading through them the rest of the day.

From my best friend, who knows me FAR TOO WELL. I bought him some wood working books for his woodshop, and he bought me this.

All Dolled Up: Sewing Clothes and Accessories for Girls and Their 18-Inch Dolls

A great techniques reference book! At first glance, the diagrams don't seem quite as clear as other books, but it covers a lot of ground.

The Dressmaker's Handbook of Couture Sewing Techniques

This one is my favorite- it has some absolutely gorgeous dresses inside! I'm really dying to make the silk chiffon dress and the pintuck dress.
