Everyday Handmade:the book

This book has been in my new stack for a few weeks.
I am a book hoarder.
I love to look at the pictures and dream that I will have time to make each project.
I only hope to make one or two.

This book is so sweet.
There are so many different project ideas, tote bags, kitchen goodies, quilts and other fun gifties.
It was really really hard to limit myself to a couple of 'favorite' projects.
There is even a bunting quilt and I have seen atleast 4 or 5 patterns done in this style.
There is one particular quilt in this book is my favorite.
They use a light blue background as if it were the sky.
The buntings are a rainbow...
it's lovely.

And of the kitchen-y stuff....
This tea towel is my favorite.
if you get the chance, check out this book.
If I ever
When I make something from this, I will share it for sure.

Don't you just love books like this, so much fun to daydream about what you want to make. I hope you do get around to some of the fun projects. Please post some pics if you do.
