Sensual Serendipity

I know. I know. It's just a book. Saturday I got the Jo-Ann Fabric's weekly sale email and it had a 50% off in store coupon. I printed out with plans on going and buying a book. Well, I did come home with a book but so not the one I was looking for. I wanted that color theory book...I can't remember the name. I've seen it there before. Well, it wasn't there today when I went to use my coupon. So, I picked out every book that even looked interesting. Picked out 5. But, this was still not one of them. I then put them all down on the table and took a peak. Nothing special. Put those back. Now, I have seen this book before and they had quit a few copies that kept peeking out from behind the others. I picked up and started looking through wow. Now I have a few criteria for a pattern book. Wide range of pattern styles. Check. Several patterns that will be appropriate for hot weather liven'. Check. Most if not all sweaters with sizes that range above 46' bust. Check. I just hate picking up a book and all the sizes end at 42'. I want to make the Vixen Caamisole, Silken Cowl Tank, McQueen Sweater, Sayuri Sweater, Ramona Sweater, Multiplicity Sweater, Snezi Oversized Shrug, Silky Negligee, and Adelle Stockings. That's um 9. Not bad from one book. Oh I know the negligee is a bit of an oddity, but I think it would be a nice little treat.
