crafty books

In a recent blog post on BookPros[e], I listed a few of the crafty books on my need-to-read list. Here are a few others I'd like to add to my bookshelf or check out from the library:
 
While honeymooning in Toronto, I picked up a copy of Meg Mateo Ilasco's Craft Inc. (I really enjoyed it and found it very informative), and I would love to own a copy of the accompanying Craft Inc. Business Planner.



I love the aesthetic of the projects found in I Love Patchwork: 25 Irresistible Zakka Projects to Sew, and I would love to learn more about how to sew with linen.


The author of Subversive Cross Stitch, Julie Jackson, is a Texan (yay local crafters!), and her cross-stitch designs are hilarious, inappropriate, and totally unexpected.


I flipped through a copy of A Rainbow of Stitches while at the bookstore during lunch a few weeks ago, and realized I'd found what I'd been looking for: a reference book of modern cross-stitch designs that I'd actually like to stitch.
