Creative Odyssey My Love for Sewing Books

I have this crazy thing of buying and browsing sewing books.
And I must admit that I am ashamed to say that I have not made used of them. I have bought and sold an Amy Butler book... wahhhh... and I have in my hot little hands this one which I think is a gem. I just took a picture live from my bed, with blogger screen behind the book. This is because I sleep next to the book. It is a constant reminder that I have done NOTHING with it.

I have no valid excuses either, I have not one but TWO sewing machines. I think my friend has used my Janome more than I have. :( And I have owned my brand new Janome for about 19 months now.

This book is brilliant because it uses One Yard of fabric in all the projects. Of course it only has clothes for little girls and luck would have it that I would have two boys and there is nothing in there for them. In my cupboard is a box of fabric just mocking me as well. So on this creative odyssey, I have decided to make it a mission to do at least one project from this book.

Something small that does not require much in terms of haberdashery. Otherwise it would result in yet another reason to procrastinate. Also the excuse of I have two babies under the age of 2 might be a more valid excuse. Watch this space and I shall return!!

On another note, it is possible to go on holiday with 2 under 2. It was both wonderful and horrific at the same time. Never again until they are at least 6!!


  1. Good Luck! I know all about buying books and mags and making sure I put them to good use!

    Happiest of New Year's to you!

  2. Yay for the sewing! You've got a sewing machine, so you're a step ahead of me already ;D

  3. Love it! Simple and to the point :-) I definitely have things like that lying around that I need to get to. Good luck with your project!

  4. Yes, sewing is amazing --I truly believe that it is therapy for me, especially when I'm having a hard day with my daughter. Good luck to you in 2011!

  5. One of new year's resolution will be to be more crafty like the mummy bloggers like you. I often feel inadequate when I see the wonderful creations that are handmade. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I believe you can do it! Sometimes, the hardest part is just starting, in my opinion. Here's hoping 2011 will allow for you to put those books to use!

  7. This is like me but to cookbooks. I have so many but yet to cook anything in any of them! So, looking forward to your new crafty posts when you finish your challenge.

    And I popped by to let you know that I've nominated you for a Stylish Blogger award :)
