I love to get lost in a great project, be it sewing, crafting or painting. So, I’m very excited to add my Piece Keeping and Dave’s Trade Quilts to my library of great project books! They join my wonderful Decoupage Book, Stencil Book, and "Stitches" series from my friends at Chronicle - featuring sewing and creative projects from beginning to advanced; my first two issues of Blossom Magazine bound in one book called Blossom (also from Chronicle); and my inspiration & lifestyle book Midwest Modern full of lush photography and ideas for decor (from Stewart Tabori & Chang).
