What I'm Reading: Lots of stuff!

Okay, so I don't want to give the impression that I somehow manage to read one book per week. It would be cool if I did, but it's just not true! I'm still working on 1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts & Tips, which I talked about last week. And seriously, I've got two pages worth of notes from that book, it's awesome! I'm pretty excited because I got an email this morning from the library that they have Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing ready for me to pick up today. I believe there is a general pattern for a pencil skirt included in the book, which would help me with my current pencil skirt mission.

At any one time, I'm typically reading a couple things at once. For Christmas, my husband gave me Fabrics A to Z, by Dana Willard, which I had checked out from the library at least two different times. I don't even store it in my sewing room because I consult it so frequently when browsing fabrics online. It's been particularly helpful this week as I've been online shopping at Mood for a variety of fabrics.

I also keep the current issue of Threads magazine close at hand. I love everything about Threads--except that it's bi-monthly! At one point I subscribed to something like 5 different magazines, but recently I've dropped a couple. Now I anticipate the ones I do have a lot more.

And of course there are is all the wonderful online content to read pretty much daily. It's not a sewing blog, but I've been reading Young House Love every day for almost two years. When I had AB and couldn't read it for a few days in the hospital, it felt weird haha! Some of my favorite sewing blogs are Make It and Love ItLLadybirdColetterie, and the Oliver + S blog (speaking of which, they just posted a sneak peak at a new pattern from the spring line, I want it already!).

What is your favorite sewing-related reading material?
