Let's Sew Together: A Book Review

Let's Sew together by Rubyellen Bratcher is a beautifully put together book. Her instructions are clear and the introduction is very helpful for beginning sewers. She really encourages everyone to sew no matter their skill level. The projects included are simply adorable. My favorite is the world map quilt. That one is definitely on my to-do list when we move and I am able to unpack my sewing machine.

There is so much more in this book than sewing projects and I love that. She includes no sew projects like clay bracelets and mister's favorite story box idea. There are also reading suggestions to go with many of the projects and other homeschool tidbits. As a homeschooling mom it is really nice to see that. Homeschooler or not, this book is simple and wonderful. If you are thinking you may like this book, you will!

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
