I'm looking forward to challenging myself this month. I took on this Craft Book Challenge as an after thought and now I have decided to take it a bit more seriously.
I have only a few craft books. Maybe six or seven. But I love each one of them not only for the wonderful projects that they feature but in fact, more for the endless inspiration that they provide.
For May I am really going to try to get (another) project done from Embroidery Companion. I absolutely love this book! I think that Alicia Paulsen has great style.
For this month I would like to make the Strawberry Tablecloth. I love embroidering on fabrics and I picked up a cotton tablecloth on clearance at Wal-Mart that I'm going to embroider on. I have it all traced onto the fabric. Now all I have to do is go pick up the right DMC colors. Humph. I should have made sure I had them before I started, I guess.
Have a great week!
