New Book - You SEW, Girl!

I had a wonderful time babysitting my granddaughter this past week.  The 3 days went by so quickly and I miss her already.  But now it's back to reality and time to catch up on my project list...

But that might be hard to do because this arrived in the mail today!

I've wanted a copy of this book ever since it came out last year, but it was only available in Australia at first and I was hoping to save on shipping, so I've tried to be patient and wait until I could buy it here in the US.  (tough task though - I REALLY wanted this book!!!)  My patience paid off because ABE Books had it listed with free shipping!  (although I just checked their site and the book is no longer showing up on their list - don't know what's up with that...) And it only took about 10 days for it to arrive, so I'm one happy gal right now!  There are so many fantastic projects in this book, that I'm going to have a hard time holding back and finishing what I've already committed to first.  But hopefully soon, I'll get started.  If you've been thinking about buying this book, I highly recommend it.  Nicole has packed it full of all kinds of sewing tips, not just patterns.  If you'd like to learn more, you can preview the book here.


  1. I know you'll enjoy this book, Kathy! I've certainly got a lot of use out of it and everyone has loved the things I've made for them from it (the toiletry bag was especially popular).. I'm going to try the wrap around skirt next and then just maybe another bag (for me!)

  2. Woohoo! I can't wait to see what you make first!

  3. Enjoy, Kathy. I'm so glad you finally got a copy for yourself!
