some good reading

It's been very cold and snowy the last few days~perfect weather to hibernate by the fire with a good book. When I was at Joann Fabrics for my machine class I saw this book by Anna Corba and had to have it. Luckily I had my 40% off coupon with me...

I love the projects! and have started on a couple over the weekend. My Dover Pub. clipart book is coming in handy, and I have been coffee-dying page after page, as well as cutting up seed catalog illustrations and old books I have collected.

Another bargain I was excited to find recently was this book by Katrin Cargill at Barnes & Noble for under $6.00. I love her simple style, and found a Swedish roll-up blind I can't wait to make for my workroom...

I also just received the February Country Home issue, and it's a good one. Some really cute ideas for Valentine's Day decorations and gifts to make, with instructions that can be downloaded from their website. Just in time to get some ideas for those Valentines I need to get done!

Of course, if I don't get out to the laundry room and fold that 'mountain' of clothes, there won't be any crafting or reading going on tonight.

Have a good day!


  1. Oh, I can't wait to get my hands on that Country Home. My mom shares her copies with me. Definetly good weather for books and magazines!

  3. A cold day and a good book....craft projects....and a cup of hot tea sounds like a wonderful day.........

  4. I have a couple of Katrin Carghill books. I really love her style. That Country Home issue looks fab. I'll have to see if I can get it over here.

  5. Great bargains on your books. I love Country Home magazine!

  6. What wonderful reading material! I borrowed the Anna Corba book from the library and loved it! I am reading the Feb issue of Country Home at the moment as well (we have a different cover here in Canada - I read inside that they were publishing the mag with 2 different covers)-did you see the gorgeous vintage bird cage?
    Have a wonderful Wednesday Deb!

  7. I love Country Home magazine along with Country Sampler. There's nothing better than snuggling down in my chair with a warm blanket, a cup of tea or cocoa and my magazines!
