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.

I'm blessed

Just look at what came in the mail for me from Freda!!  I was completely and totally surprised and overwhelmed by her generosity and thrilled beyond words with the treasure she sent.  She included a lovely note that actually brought me to tears (which isn't something I do very often).  

Freda had done a review of her copy on her blog and I commented about having to add another book on my 'wish list'.  Well, she fulfilled my wish!  Thank you SO much Freda - I have drooled over each page already and will settle down to read it cover to cover.  
This book is a full colour extravaganza of eye candy and techniques, most of which I can't wait to try.  If you're interested in acquiring your own copy, here are the specs (and no, you're NOT getting mine!!)...
"Fabric Embellishing - The Basics and Beyond' by Ruth Chandler, Liz Kettle, Heather Thomas and Lauren Vlcek.  Published by Landauer Books;  ISBN 13:978-9818040-3-3,  c. 2009.

Lucky lucky me to have friends such as Freda!!

ps. Freda, I emailed you privately too.

Ooooooo, that DOES look like a tasty piece of eye-candy!
I think I would have plopped down and accomplished nothing but read!
Freda must be a very good person, or fairy godmother, in the wish granting dept!

You are very welcome and I know you will make fabulous things from it.

It is fun receiving surprises and you can't receive them and not send them also.

You are indeed lucky, MaryAnne! I also read Freda's review on her blog, and asked about the book at a recent Quilt show here in Melbourne. They said it isn't in Australia yet...duh. As much as I love my country, we get left behind in so many things!
