Silvia hoped her scissors were sharp enough.-- Nine Simple Patterns for Complicated Women by Mary Rechner (nine short stories).
This adorable book came from a Portland publisher called Propeller Books and it is irresistible. Not only is the cover so vintage sassy, it is also a beautifully-made book, with thick, rough-cut pages and French flaps. French flaps. That is a trend in book binding that I support wholeheartedly.
