Here are a couple books to check out from your local library. I say check them out so you can decide if you like them before purchasing your very own copy.
My local library has a great website with search and reserve options and handy e-mail notification for pick up availability PLUS they offer interlibrary loans. That means little ol' me receives borrowed books, free of charge, from every state in the union! Yay, no more stoopid bad book buys!
Simple Sewing with a French Twist by Celine Dupuy. Pretty fabrics, cute ideas, good project directions.
