I really wanted to read the book, "Bend The Rules Sewing". I have seen a few blogs that featured projects from this book that were really cute! As usual, I wanted to read it before buying it, so I checked my county's library system on line and they had the book and it was in! You can see a picture of the book on the Amazon Widget on my sidebar.
I love the library. Monday, I went on line and requested the book from a different branch of the library than the one I frequent and Tuesday before lunch they called me at work to say it was waiting at my usual branch for me. I live in a county large in area with several small towns. Four of the small towns have libraries, but three of them are not near me.
I was so excited about this book that even a midday rain storm didn't stop me from going on my lunch hour to get it. I had to request a plastic bag to protect it from the downpour! I sneaked a few glimpses of the book during the afternoon and even while sitting at stoplights on the way home. FINALLY, I was able to really enjoy it last night. I really like the book and would like to make some of the projects. This book is the perfect book for beginner seamstresses. Its also great for someone like me who needs to learn easier ways to sew. I'm not a beginner seamstress, but definitely could use all the tips I can get!
I have nearly finished the two daughter's and granddaughter's "heart" bags and took these pictures this morning. I need to sew on the buttons (they are pinned on in this picture) and make the insert that goes in the bottom and then they'll be finished.
