Nicky Epstein's "Knitted Flowers" and "Crochet Flowers" books are now available in paperback. I haven't spent much time embellishing projects or items, but these books sure make me want to. Both books have infinite possibilities for embellishing garments and home accessories. I would love to make a pillow for Libby's room (sew) and embellish it with some sweet cord blooms or lazy daisy flowers. (I am pretty certain she would love that, too.)
And, if I ever take the time to learn how to crochet, I'd make a bunch of the daisy may flowers and sew them onto a crocheted blanket. I can just see it... so cute!
Guess what? The nice peeps over at soho publishing have offered two of my readers a book.
Oh! One more thing. Have you seen or heard of knitcircus magazine? They are currently a free online magazine with an option to purchase the patterns all together as a collection rather than as individual patterns. Knitcircus is three rings of knitting, sewing and fibercraft with recipes thrown in for fun. Jaala, the Editor-in-Chief has offered two of my readers the pdf download of the spring pattern collection.
So, if you are interested in any or all of these, leave me a comment (with your first choice) by Monday, the 15th at 12pm EST. I will choose 4 names.
Have a wonderful weekend!
