In an effort to make me feel better as my brain esplodes with all the crazy* going in my life right now, famed philanthropist ElleC sent me a care-package.
Two books on nifty sewing techniques.
Because something else to read is exactly what I need right now.
Not to mention inspiration about time-consuming hand-decorating techniques I HAVE NO TIME FOR.
Yes, like all ElleC’s gifts, this one is edged with malice aforethought. However, I am quite sure I will thoroughly enjoy reading through both Sewing with Knits (practical!) and Fine Embellishment Techniques (exciting!)
Thank you, ElleC.
No, I mean it, really.
Also, Canada Post managed to deliver these in like, two days? Which is insanely impressive for them. I mean, ElleC and I aren’t located too far apart, as the crow flies, but there’s still like mountains in the way and stuff. Thank you, Canada Post.
