day 5 :: 2009 craft books

2009 craft books :: Applique Your Way by Kayte Terry

i'm pretty sure you've seen this book around... this is a collection of 35 stitching projects with full size patterns & templates. Kayte Terry's blog is This is Love Forever.

look at these photos in the book.... what eye candy for all of us to enjoy ! vintage buttons ! liberty fabrics? vintage fabrics? whatever they are - they are oh so lovely !!

from this book i made the Quilt Square cards, but from the above photo you can see that they could also be made out of circles...

it's a great way to use up those fabric scraps... i'm still trying to use up these purple, pink & yellow fabric scraps i have, remember i already made some quilted cards?
sewing on paper is fun ! i want to do more - i like it when i can combine some of my favorite crafts (sewing & paper crafting) together, don't you?

have a great weekend ! see you on Monday for day 6 !
