'I got mail'... Yes, yesterday I got a parcel from US, so was quite excited as I have been anxiously waiting for my autographed book to arrive ... OK ... OK ... keep your hats on I'm getting to the book name...
It's the new book by Jane Da'vila & Elin Waterston called .... 'Art Quilts at Play... Ignite Your Inner Artist-Experiment With Surface Design Techniques' ... annnnnd guess what ... it's all I was expecting + more... I'm not a great reader so if a book has lots of 'how-to' photos I am as happy as...& this one does ... Girls you have done a wonderful job, as I knew you would, as I love your other book Art Quilt Workbook - I even got the DvD ... hint hint is this new book coming out in a DvD too?
Now I've checked it over page by page, twice now so, now it's time to 'devour' it page by page [ like read all the print - not just the heaps & heaps of hints].
The girls have a wonderful formula to their books ... they are not over cluttered, they are easy to read, they are easy to understand - yes there is a big difference to reading & understanding what you are reading], they are set-out exceptionally well & like I said before they have heaps of how-to photos ... not a page without... oops found one & it's in the credits but with all the other photos what's one page ... so if you were thinking about buying it - I'd say go for it it is well worth it ... & no I not affiliated, 'as they say', just a happy customer...
Thankful... to people who will put, what they have learned, out there, to share with others ...
