Sew What Skirts: 16 Simple Styles You Can Make With Fabulous Fabrics by Francesca DenHartog
The Sultan's Kitchen: A Turkish Cookbook by Ozcan Ozan
The Book of New Family Traditions by Meg Cox
A Taste of Haiti by Mirta Yurnet-Thomas
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
The Measure of a Man by Sidney Poitier
I am excited to try my hand at some Turkish and Haitian cooking, as well as some skirt making. The Road and The Measure of a Man are books that my husband is interested in reading... but I think I may get my hands on them first. And the Family Traditions book will serve us well in figuring out what sorts of traditions & rituals we would like to hand down to our son (we have only come up with one tradition on our own thus far).
Also ... I received some fabric from a swap that I participated in on Swap-Bot. We exchanged vintage fat quarters (18" x 22") of fabric. I sent my partners some sweet 70's fabrics from my collection. And I just received a package from my swap partner in Sweden. She sent me some very unique pieces. I LOVE them! They are barkcloth materials from the 60's...
I also received some lovely photo ATCs from another swap I am participating in ... but don't feel that I have a "right" to display them here as I still haven't sent mine out yet! (Sorry to my partners ... I WILL get right on this). I will post them here as soon as I quit slacking and send mine :)
