A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Announcing......

Today I am excited to announce two things!

First of all, Kathy Shaw (Shawkl) has just announced that her new book is now available for pre-orders!  "Crazy Quilting - Volume I - Beyond The Basics" is a wonderful book (I know - because I was honoured to be Kathy's proofreader!!).  It is the first of what will be a series of books, based on the free online crazy quilting classes she has been offering for the past couple of years.  There is lots of new content in this book, so if you have taken her classes already you will definitely find the book to be a good addition to your library.



Amazon will be carrying the book at a cost of $29.40, but Kathy is currently taking pre-orders through her Etsy Shop and you can reserve a copy there for the reduced cost of $20.60 (plus shipping and handling).  The books are slated to be shipped before the first week of December (Christmas present idea??).  For further information go HERE and to pre-order you can go HERE.

The second announcement concerns those wonderful stencils created by Sharon Boggon that I mentioned a few days ago.  They are now available!!  You can purchase yours by going HERE.   I use the first series of stencils quite often in my work and I was quick to order this set to add to my embroidery tools.

Today the quote is from Laurence Sterne...."Every time a man smiles, and much more when he laughs, it adds something to his fragment of life"

Thank you for the wonderful links Mary Anne! I have my copy of the book on pre-order and I am very tempted by the stencils too... I have the first set and I have already used them quite a bit! Christine x
