Inspiration

Anyone else like The Farm Chicks? Excuse me for boasting, but I live in the same city as they do! We pick strawberries at the same farm! I wasn't able to attend their annual Antique Show this June, because we were on vacation in California. I would love to get my hands on a copy of their new cookbook.


I found this cookbook, Apples for Jam, in Anthropologie a few years ago, and it's a book I wish I would have purchased. I love the recipes and the photography!


I'm just going to have to break down and buy this book! I look at it every time I go into Barnes and Noble (without kids, that is). I just plop myself down on the floor and before I know it, I've let a half an hour go by.


The Apron Book is one that I've had my eye on for awhile now. I adore aprons! The author, EllynAnne Geisel, was this year's honored guest at the Farm Chicks Antique Show.

Here is another apron book that I discovered while browsing at a bookstore. The aprons in this book are adorable, and there are patterns for each apron; however, most of them have to be enlarged to 400%.

Sewing With a French Twist is a book that I almost bought as a gift for a friend. I probably would have been tempted to keep it for myself. The projects in this book, as well as the pictures, are very stylish.

They all look like great books. I'll be checking my library for these! I just returned Bend The Rules Sewing...I did a few projects out of that a few weeks ago:;-)

Ooh, I like the one on the front of The Apron Book. I have two aprons, and I love them. I'm so glad to see aprons being used and loved now. Whenever I've had mine on and company has come over for dinner, my guests always seem to get a big kick out of seeing me wear one because they haven't seen someone wear one for years!

I'd like one of each too! If you make an apron, it's a MUST post :)

I did make one last night--I'll have to post it later.

Oohhh, thanks for the heads up on the Farm chick cookbook! I'm going to make it to their antique show one of these years.

The A is for Apron book was the refueling of a passion for me. I made my first apron at about 12 years of age. Now I'm 43, and this book gave me a new dream.
