It's not out yet (May 1st or there abouts) but it's coming. . .and I am so excited. The second built by wendy bookis all about sewing garments from knit fabrics. Bomb. I can't express how brilliant I think this is. I need to work with knits more. I don't very often mostly because finding good quality knit yardage can be hard. . .but I am going to start stockpiling now. Knits are so forgiving so sew with, I need to get back on that horse. And you don't need a serger to sew with knits, I know many people assume you do. Having said that, my serger rocks (babylock) and handles knits like a dream. I loved wendy's first book a ton so I have high hopes for this one.
And Mix Tape Zine issue 2 is out and I think is almost completely gone already-take a peek and snatch one up if you can. I love reading this over lunch while the girls are playing. God, remember zines?? It's so nice to get this great content NOT on a computer. This issue makes me want to start making soap again. (Almost.) And thanks for the sweet review of Bend-the-Rules, Justine. I am very flattered.
This posting everyday thing is working out for me so far. I think limiting my posts to one item a day--that's my speed right now. I made a list though, because I have forgotten that one thing a few times already. . . (And today there were 2 things, I'm tricky!!)
