Help! Control me :-)

I need your help! Please! ….. Pretty Please! …… Pretty Please with cherries on top?!?!?

Today the UPS man came (I think I may love him) and brought me a box that had Amy Butler’s In Stitches and Midwest Modern Books. I bought these to sell them, but after looking through them I think I need these books for myself. Her Sew-It-Kit should be arriving soon. I’ll need your help then too!

This book has 25 awesome sewing projects and even a cute little flap on the front cover that holds all the pattern pieces. There are projects for the living room, the kitchen, bedroom and even bathroom. Plus there are office projects that I’m just POSITIVE would help me keep my sewing area more neatly organized. (you see my logic kicking in….I HAVE to have this book!) Plus some bags and even a cute little sash. Oh my!

Someone PLEASE make me put this up onto my website or Etsy or eBay. I am supposed to be paying bills with this business or saving for the kids college. 🙂

This book has over 200 pages that not only give you information about Amy Butler’s life (and her cute kitty too) but also provide a great deal of inspiration for finding your own style and creating active and passive spaces in your life. Please! Take it from me 🙂

Now, there is a pattern that I was always planning to use personally. It is the Oliver and S pattern for the Tea Dress. SO CUTE! Haley’s dress is nearly finished. (I have to attach the bodice and hem it.) I’ll post pictures of her finished dress….and hopefully she will model it for you!

I’ll try to “review” it for you…but right now I don’t have any to sell you. Sorry! I’m using a really cute Robert Kaufman fabric for her new tea dress. How cute is this Fresh as a Daisy fabric?

Enough for today! Enjoy the rest of your week.
