Did you have a good weekend? Relaxing? Busy? Productive? I spent part of mine happily reading. Here's a peek of what's on my nightstand.
There is Zakka Style for the sew along. Did you see Terri's tote bag this morning? So cute! I think I have enough essex in my stash to make a fun solid one.
I bought Transparency Quilts and A Field Guide to Fabric Design for my birthday...
See the top two? 37 Sketches and Liberated Quiltmaking II? Gwen Marston sent me copies to review and giveaway to one of my readers. Lucky ducks!! I have and love Liberated Quiltmaking II. Do you remember my Habitat quilt? I learned that technique from Gwen's book! I don't have her new one yet but it's high on my wishlist. Keep your eyes out for the giveaway later in the week.
I'm revisiting Material Obsession and Freddy & Gwen Collaborate Again, looking for some scrappy inspiration.
There is an Everyday Food magazine tucked in there too. It's actually last years April issue, but April is April, right? Ugh. I'm in a major cooking rut. I just want good food that my family will eat and I don't have to think about too much.
This one was almost liberated... I wish I pushed myself to take it a little farther. I'm definitely going to revisit the idea of liberated asterisks. Maybe with smaller blocks and a limited color palette? Hmmm...
Any good books on your nightstand? : )
