Heather Ross's Weekend Sewing looks like it has some good projects that I've seen all over flickr and blogland.
One Yard Wonders looks amazing! It has 100 projects, from home dec to kid stuff to clothes to softies. I've already found a handful of projects that are now on the must-sew list. Great gift ideas too!
These are going to be good for finally making some of my own clothes. Although the cover is seriously outdated, Palmer's Fit for Real People is a great resource about how to alter patterns to get them to actually fit. I have all kinds of problems buying off-the-rack, so I would love to learn to make clothes that actually work for me.
Sew What! Skirts looks like a fun basic book that basic instructions for pieces that mix and match for different skirt types, like different cuts, closures and waistbands. There isn't much new information for me there, but it's nice to have it all in one place as a resource.
