To say that these are ‘good reads’ is simply not enough.  The above books all  amaze, delight and inspire — each in their own unique way. 

Alabama Stitch Book ::  was completely fascinated with the process and techniques  used in this book.  Something I definitely want to explore – and would love to take a class on this art of hand-stitching.  

Stitched in Time ::  I’m a long-time fan of Alicia and her blog Posie gets Cozy (http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/posie_gets_cozy/).  Her book is filled with many projects to capture all the sweet memories life brings.  My favorite is an apron with a beloved (and much used) recipe on the front.  There are lots of  ‘to do’s  for me in this book. 

The Gentle Art of  D0mesticity ::   I truly wondered how I would like this book . First of all, the title was not one I would normally be drawn to — but, for years,  Jane Brocket’s blog  http://www.yarnstorm.blogs.com/ has been a ‘must read’.    Who knew this book would be the one I kept coming back to over the past two weeks. From the first page, I was hooked.  It contains no patterns,  and just a few recipes.  But what it does have are pages and pages of what it means to be ‘domestic’ in this day and age.   I promise  you, this book will make you look at that word in an entirely new way.   

So there it is — three books that are highly recommended (for 3 different reasons) as ‘Good Reads’
