They’re mine…..all mine! I don’t need to take them back to the library EVER!
Thanks to a couple of my peeps, I received a generous Amazon gift certificate for Christmas and I went CRAZY, man. Somehow (oh my!) I ended up ordering DOUBLE what the original gift card was and look at my order……wowser. Can’t wait to dig into them all. I don’t know which one to look at first.
First off……I ordered a book of Gustav Klimt’s work by di Stefano. As you know….he’s my new favorite artist. (Thanks to Elizabeth, Sandi, Annette & Robyn for raiding their stash and contributing to my yellow/maze fabrics in anticipation of tackling an interpretation of his work!)
Masters Art Quilts – Volume 2. I checked out the first volume of this compendium from the library and was so inspired – I’m sure this will be no less inspirational.
Fresh Quilting – Dubrawsky
Create your own free-form quilts – Rayna Gillman. This one is sorta like my fractured reality series…..I guess what they say is true – nothing is new. It is certainly new to me though and I can’t wait to try some curved strip piecing. This gal has a similar philosophy to me….piecing is therapeutic. Who needs a psychologist or prozac if you’ve a sewing machine and a bag of scraps?
The best of Quilting Arts – Bolton
Intuitive color & design – Jean Wells
Health & Wellness Books:
Relax & Renew – Judith Hanson Lasater. My favorite yoga writer/speaker/teacher. I could listen to her all day. I could read her all day. I would love to go to her workshop in Sydney later this year on this subject.
Beautiful You – Rosie Rolinary I’ve been following this gal’s blog for awhile and am looking forward to reading her book. This is what her ‘about’ page says [she] “empowers women to embrace their authentic selves so they can live their passion and purpose and give their gifts to the world.”
The Relaxation Response – Herbert Benson.
The things we do for love – Kristin Hannah. She writes such sweet books – usually with relationship conflict happening. Somewhat fluff no doubt but sometimes that’s just exactly what you need. I think it was Mystic Lake that I loved so much that I wrote her a fan letter. My first fan letter! And, she responded. How cool is that?
Once Upon a time, there was you – Elizabeth Berg. I have loved her writing for years. My absolute favorite of hers is Talk Before Sleep. I remember when I first read it I think I bought 6 copies to share with people. It is a story of friendship between women and how they all rallied together to support one who was dying. I’ve always thought having a group of women like that in your life would be amazing and it probably would be. Lately and more importantly though, I think if you have even just one tribeswoman in your life – you are indeed fortunate.
