Heather Ross Weekend Sewing Book
Heather Ross Weekend Sewing Book

More than just a pair of days, a weekend is also a state of mind, a feeling of relaxation and freedom to immerse ourselves fully in a favorite activity. In Weekend Sewing, designer Heather Ross presents creative projects for clothing, accessories, and home items that can be made in a weekend or less. Some, like the Quick Garden Gloves and Ruby's Bloomers, take a few hours; others, like the Weekend-Away Travel Bag and Trapeze Sundress, require a day or two, but all of them capture that weekend feeling. And because weekends are often the most fun when they're social, Ross features ideas that encourage us to share our stitching and our time, such as a recipe for soup to simmer while sewing, then serve to guests later in the day, and tips for transporting a sewing machine to a friend's house for an afternoon of social stitching. The sewing instructions are beautifully illustrated, and patterns for the projects are included on pullout sheets.

I think Heather is just delightful and very talented.  However, I think Martha is rude to all of her guest!  How rude to say on the air that you are going to give a gift away!  I would have been thrilled with the dress and she should have too!  Boo to you Martha!

Love the video, I just can't believe Marthia would give up a gift made for her to her sister, Makes me think she didn't care for the color of the dress or the dress itself. maybe I'm making a big deal out of nothing. A simple dress. nice
