When I received a Barnes and Noble gift card as a wedding gift, I knew I wanted to choose books that would improve my somewhat pathetic attempts at cobbling together a home.
This book is positively intoxicating. It's a veritable lifestyle guide, filled with sewing techniques, printmaking how-to's, recipes, methods for refurbishing ramshackle chairs, and, well, sheer gorgeousness. I have poured over it for weeks now. Though I intend to give all of the homemaking a try, the garment patterns are most exciting to me. My current project is a dark blue tank dress for Juliana to take with her to Africa. I'll post pictures as soon as I finish it.
