What's New Review
By using fabrics, stabilizer, and threads, Linda guides you through the process of making fabric bowls. They are so much fun to make that you'll find yourself wanting to make another and another and another. Great fun and highly recommended!
Judith details how to stitch over fifty elegant floral designs in this lavishly illustrated, warm and welcoming book. She includes a collection of botanical shapes, alphabets and monograms, and crazy-quilt combinations. Judith discusses color, mixed mediums (such as adding paint to your fabric background), and framing ideas. The fitting finale is a collection of exceptional stitcheries, sketches, and stories in Free-Form Embroidery, a chapter that is sure to inspire. This is a lovely book on its own and a wonderful companion to Judith's Elegant Stitches.
Although this book is directed at quilters, any person doing any type of repetitive activity can benefit from the wealth of sensible advice offered in this little gem of a book. The tone is friendly, not preachy. The advice sound, not off-the-wall or a struggle to implement. The book's information is wide in scope--covering everything from back, neck, and eye health to time management, healthy eating, and simple exercise--and its presentation is in an easy-to-follow format. My favorite piece of advice from Dr. Susan Delaney Mech is taking a 10 minute break every hour--it's good for your body and can make you 25% more productive. My advice is to get this book for yourself and for those you care about.
