Mail Call!

Today I got two books I had pre-ordered from Amazon. "Blogging For Bliss" and Tilda's new book "Sew Sunny Homestyle". "Blogging for Bliss" is just fabulous. If you haven't got it already, run out and get it!

I'm a big fan of Tilda, and I had seen some photos of her new book on Flickr. It was released in Norway last winter, I think. There was a cute little mouse in it, and I had no idea what projects were in this book, but I went ahead and ordered it. You can see all the pages I have marked already! And that was within 10 minutes of opening the box!

Here's what's first up on my "must make" list:
How cute are those "cake" pincushions??
I know a couple of friends who would like one of these:
A jewlery keeper:
Ta-da!! The adorable mouse! He needs to be in my sewing room!
And look at these cute little houses!
So you all know what I'll be up to. My quilt buddy Stef has been showing me up with all of her completed projects. She got me inspired to get back to work on my UFO's. Back to the sewing room!

I agree both books are wonderful! I was given the 'Blogging Bliss' book & my Tilda book is on it's way! I'm a Tilda fan too. . . (I'm collecting all her books!) I would love to have a 'Tilda' retreat & make nothing but her wonderful projects!
xo, Bren

I am in love with Tilda! My DH gave me her "Sew Pretty Christmas" book for Christmas and I love everything in it. I know that I will love this one also!
