About 2 weeks ago, I received a copy of Homespun Style by Selina Lake. Wow. I'll say it again, only louder. WOW! I don't usually like to buy "decorating" books, because it's like putting money out for an expensive magazine, but I urge you to check this out. After reading it, I wanted to run through my house and rearrange, redecorate, and Make More Things. When I calmed down, I grabbed my crochet hook and went to work.
vintage vertical stripe blanket pattern (which I tried last year and ripped out, because I made my starting chain too long and it was taking FOREVER!).
Cozy Things. Apparently we were both crocheting along on our towels at the same time, inspired by the same picture, without knowing it! I'm telling ya this book is magical!
Okay here comes another book recommendation.........
I've lost about 5 hours of sleep from reading this book. Do not start reading it at night before you go to bed, because you will not go to bed. The first night I was up until midnight, and last night it was 1:00 a.m. Thank goodness it's finished because I need a nap. It's a very quick read, and one of those books that leaves you thinking about it for days after. The way it starts and unfolds is gripping,(but sweet at the same time. You'll get it if you read it) and you don't want to stop until you see the characters are safe. This is the kind of book you pass on to your friends or pick for a book club. It's that good.
Have a great weekend everybody! Comments and new followers are welcome anytime : )
