Good morning All,
Did you get some fun, quilty things for Christmas? I did!
Not only did I get a bit of fabric to add to my stash :) But I also got a few quilt related books.
The first one I've been wanting for a little while now. My regular readers know I am trying to improve my free motion quilting, so any free motion quilting books I want to read and absorb.
My Sweetie got this one for me:
Molly seems to be a down to earth Gal. She says in her book " I would rather be fishing than shopping." My kind of gal :) Her book is rather like two books in one. You get some great tips and tricks, plus a few free motion quilting designs. And then you get projects.
She practices on small pieces, 12 x 15, 16 x 18 and such, and then turns those pieces into bags, runners, mats, etc.
A great book to add to your collection.
I enjoy reading stories about homesteading, opening up the West, prairie living, mountain living, etc. (As well as other genre's.)
This is the second book my sweetie got me:
A book about her life on the prairie in the late 1800's.... she becomes a very proficient quilter :)
Here's part of what it says on Amazon:
No Time on My Hands is a remarkable chronicle of the sod house era and of Grace Snyder’s married life on a ranch in Nebraska’s sandhills. From there she finally flies above the clouds to exhibits where her quilts contribute to a worldwide revival of quiltmaking. Mrs. Snyder lived twenty years after the publication of these memoirs in 1963, to the age of one hundred. Her daughter, Nellie Snyder Yost, who helped to write No Time on My Hands, has added an epilogue to this Bison edition.
So far, it's a nice read.
Hope you got some nice things too.
Have a great day!
