Country fabric style : creative projects for the home by Julia Bird( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fabulous collection of sewing ideas, with its empasis on simplicity and style, will appeal to even the most reticent of needleworkers while offering inspiration to more experienced sewers. Colors, textures, patterns, and innovative finishing touches are imaginatively combined by Julia Bird to beautifully enhance the home. Among the more than 20 step-by-step projects are luxurious taselled bolsters, a pin-tucked Roman blind, a delicate organza tablecloth, summer canopies, and a bright and breezy beach tent. Each project has suggestions for adapting the main design to provide countless variations; thus, with only a minimum of change, the beach tent becomes a roomy wardrobe, the bordered bed linen becomes a cheerful tablecloth, the tasselled bolster becomes a chic drawstring bag. Further ideas for different finishes, such as embroidery stitches, applique, and the addition of trimmings and bows, show how one basic design can provide many different looks. The lavish selection of color photographs capture not only Julia Bird's rich blending of tecture, color, and pattern but also her own unique flair for stylish living

Toward great Dhaka : a new urban development paradigm eastward by Julia Bird( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A unique strategic opportunity beckons Bangladesh. Dhaka, the economic powerhouse of the country, stands on the cusp of a dramatic transformation that could make it much more prosperous and livable. Today, Dhaka is prone to flooding, congestion, and messiness, to a point that is clogging its growth. But toward its east, where two major highway corridors will one day intersect, is a vast expanse of largely rural land. And much of it is within 6 kilometers of the most valuable parts of the city. The time to make the most of this eastward opportunity is now. Many parts of East Dhaka are already being developed in a haphazard way at an alarmingly rapid pace. Private developers are buying land and filling it with sand so they can build and sell new houses and apartments. Canals and ponds are disappearing, and the few narrow roads crossing the area are being encroached by construction. This spontaneous development could soon make East Dhaka look like the messy western part of the city, and retrofitting it later will be more difficult and costlier than properly planning and developing it now. Toward Great Dhaka: A New Urban Development Paradigm Eastward seeks to analyze how the opportunity of East Dhaka could be realized. Using state-of-the-art modeling techniques, the study simulates population, housing, economic activity, and commuting times across the 266 unions that constitute Greater Dhaka. It does so under various scenarios for the development of East Dhaka, but always assessing the implications for the entire city. The simulations suggest that pursuing a strategic approach to the development of East Dhaka would make Greater Dhaka a much more productive and livable city than continuing with business as usual. Based on current trends, Greater Dhaka would have a population of 25 million in 2035 and an income per capita of US$8,000 at 2015 prices. However, embracing a strategic approach would add 5 million people to the city. And, it would be a more productive city, with nearly 1.8 million more jobs and an income per capita of more than US$9,200 at 2015 prices, enough to put Dhaka on the map of global cities."--
