for little ones

I went on Amazon to order a meditation CD. It was, like, 14 bucks. You know what usually happens when you spend 14 bucks on Amazon. You look for a way to spend 11 more so you can get free shipping. (You wind up spending more than 11 more, but let's call that a minor detail.)

I put the CD in my cart. (By the way, it's Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness for Beginners. I increasingly believe meditation to be important and helpful, and I'm finding ways to do it and think about it that resonate personally. I'll tell you my opinion of this CD when I start using it.) There was nothing I felt inclined to buy from my wish-list, so I scrolled through Amazon's recommendations for me. Deep into the listings, I found this.

Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones. I hadn't heard or read a thing about it. Usually there's a lot of buzz surrounding anything to do with Amy Butler. Maybe I just missed it. At any rate, it was a pleasant surprise. It'll be a while before I get around to making anything from it, but it's fun to leaf through.

This little top and these booties are my favorites.

And, bonus, the book comes with paper patterns. No going to Kinko's for enlarging.

That's too funny because I was at the Chronicle Book store last week and saw this and thought.. hrmmm, howcome I haven't heard about this book yet? And I'm subscribed to the Amy Butler mailing list too. Weird, huh?
