Twenty minutes a day. Those are the rules.
I love reading. I tend to get sucked into books. They grab hold of me and don’t let go until the story is over. I do nothing else. I mean nothing. (Like skip meals, don’t shower, forget about cooking…kids? I have kids? kind of nothing.) I think it’s one of my character flaws to let things become all encompassing but with books, it’s one of my favorite things.
So that I can tie this into sewing, I’m going to mention the plethora of modern fabric related books that have come to the market thanks to Stash Books. I’m actually really excited about the book Modern Mix from Jessica Levitt. It’s one that I’m going to buy for myself. I can’t wait because just based on the photographs (amazing!) there are at least 6 projects that I want to make! (and no one is paying me to say this or has even asked me to post this. I’ll have to buy a book just like everyone else. I admire Jessica, love her style and am honestly excited about her book.)
Now back to my little reading corner – Michael’s is where I purchased these letter. I painted them white, cut up a charm pack and just decoupaged the squares onto the letters. I have actually finished the quilt that goes in the reading nook since the last time I mentioned the area – but it’s at the quilters – so I’ll have to show it later.
I am wondering, when I have time to loose myself in a book, what book do you recommend I read? (I asked this on twitter the other day and received so many great suggestions! But I’m always looking, so let me know your favorites!) What have you read recently and loved? Do you belong to any book clubs? (either virtual or in the flesh ;-) ) Also, I’m wondering if you usually “real” books or electronic versions?
