I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Mail Call!

City Quilts: 12 Dramatic Projects Inspired By Urban ViewsLook what I got in the mail yesterday!!!  What fun quilts they are!  And so easy to make, looks like.  I can't wait to get started!  There are 3-D quilts, too.  The very cool thing about this book:  not only does Cherri give patterns to the quilts, but she includes photos of what inspired her to make them.  She also has quotes from various artists.  Love it!

Dancing with Thread: Your Guide to Free-Motion Quilting
I got Dancing with Thread: Your Guide to Free-Motion Quilting a few days ago.  I've been pouring over it.  VERY GOOD book!  I highly recommend it, even if you don't want to do the type of sewing she does.  You'll learn LOTS!

PaintWorks  I also picked up the current copy of this magazine (this isn't the one I have) so I could refresh my skills in the painting department.  I can't draw, nor paint free hand.  Truly.  Yet, for some wierd reason, I can paint from a painting.  I think, though, that this magazine might be able to teach me how to paint from ideas in my head.  I hope so.

I'll let you know how it works out!
