curly

Some twisty curly leaves I found in the front yard. Such beautiful shapes.





Here are a few books I'm eyeing, and think you guys might be interested too. I'm especially excited about the Japanese-y one and the Lotta one.





Linen Wool Cotton
Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing for Baby
Weekend Sewing
Quilts, Baby!

You are in "sewing mood" these days ? Your books seems to be a very good source of inspiration.

What treasures! I’m almost addicted to sewing and crafting books. I keep a pile on my bedside table…
