for me, some new quilt arrivals:
playful little paper-pieced projects by tacha bruecher
color essentials: crisp and vibrant quilts by amanda murphy
quilting with a modern slant by rachel may
when i get to dive into them, i'll let you know. i already have plans for st. patrick's day aprons from the paper piecing book. so cute!
for the kids, i recently added to our fairytale collection in preparation for doing a big, huge homeschool unit with the younger kids where we study various fairytales. i did this years ago with the oldest children and it was so fun. i like to go over each major (and some minor) fairytale and folklore story by reading as many versions of the same tale as possible. there are all kinds of related activities we do along the way.
rachel isadora has several new versions of classics set in Africa and illustrated in her wonderful, colorful collage style. this will help add more multicultural flair to our bookshelf.
sarah gibb. her delicate, lacey, silhouette-and-color style of illustrating is at the top of my list of favorite artists.
|back of book jacket and book - they'd make great fabrics!|
rapunzel a few years and loved it to pieces - literally. i just had to buy a replacement. i think it's my all-time favorite fairytale book.
