A great new sewing stitch handbook!

This book is fabulous for beginning to experience sewers. I'm a beginner myself, and found it to be most helpful for figuring out what all those fancy and unique stitches on my machine are best for when actually sewing. Along with very detailed information for each machine stitch type, there is a section at the back with easy to follow directions and guides for each type of hand stitch. Very well put together and easy to read; this book is a must have for anyone wanting to venture out a bit more and use some different stitches on their machine or by hand. I would highly recommend the book!

Until You're Mine by Samantha Hayes


Until You're Mine is a thrill ride from start to finish. Even after reading it, I still have chills thinking about some of the scenes. It reads like a movie. At first, the reader may have trouble figuring out which character is narrating the opening prologue, whether it is Zoe the nanny or Claudia the mother. The way I thought the plot would turn was in no way how it actually turned out at the end. The author weaves a complex tale and keeps the reader guessing until the very last sentence. I would most definitely recommend this to loves of mystery/suspense and even horror.
