Creative Books I'm Enjoying

In an effort to completely warp Emma, I bought her these two books for her birthday. We both love them. Great projects for kids of any age!

The Stitch-it Kit embroidery book is awesome. It's been on my Amazon wish list for quite awhile but I found it recently at Joann's and after using my 50% off coupon, it was quite a bargain. I haven't bought the Sublime Stitching one yet but I have looked through it and it is next on the list.


  1. My mother purchased a kids cookie baking cookbook for me when I was about 7 & I've been a baker ever since. You are putting her on a fun path!

  2. Such cute and creative books. How fun!

  3. Wonderful books, Jen!! Great choices!

  4. My girls ages 15, 13, and almost 8 have recently started doing stitchery, and are loving it.

    The Klutz Books have a great stitchery book with iron on patterns.

    I love to watch them learn new things.

  5. Thanks! I've been looking for a good beginners embroidery/stitchery book.
    I love to sew, but have never embroidered. But, I've been inspired to try it by Janet over at Primrose Design. On her blog, she shows different stitches step by step. A book for children would be just my speed. LOL :)

  6. I think that is wonderful Jen you are inspiring her to become crafty! Nothing wrong with good ole craftiness in a girl! Neat you can share together. cherry

  7. Kudos on passing your talent down to your daughter :D Mine is 5, and she wants to knit, and I don't know how :( Imagine in 20 years, you and your daughter crafting and sewing together...good stuff!


Thank you for taking the time to say hello today! I always love to hear what you have to say.
