I hurt my back this past weekend, so I’ve been doing a lot of sitting around and reading. Lucky for me I picked up a couple books at the library last week, so I turned out to be fairly prepared for this episode of pain and inactivity. One of the books (which I had already checked out years ago when I couldn’t appreciate all the good ideas), Sewing Tips and Trade Secrets, is essentially a compilation of tidbits from Threads magazine. I devoured this book over the past 2 days… it was so fascinating to read new ways and better ways to accomplish some basic sewing tasks. I’d highly recommend it!
