Using just a tool or two (a pocketknife and a gouge), readers will learn how to whittle 12 small objects, from a coffee spoon to a pair of dice, that take just a few hours to finish—and in the process carve out a little peace and quiet for themselves. A super stylish, irresistible gift for DIY enthusiasts!

Parson Gray Trade Quilts 20 Rough-Hewn Projects by David Butler

Amy isn’t the only one in the Butler family with quilting chops! You’ll love these projects, made from large swathes of fabric big enough for a little instant gratification (as much as a quilt can lend itself to instant gratification) but interesting enough to keep you thinking. Just playing with color and fabric choices will multiply your quilting possibilities. Try Project 14 (Bullseye Quilt) in neutrals or monochrome for a modern feel, or go with rainbow for a fun color wheel! This is sure to be a new favorite on your bookshelf.  —Megan

But hang in there, you’ll get it! And if the illustrations throw you off, a short online video might do just the trick to unweaving you from any confusion, helping you keep your *stitch* together.  –Ash
