new book for christmas

i hope you all had a great christmas-this is a book that i received from my son:D i gave him the name of it and told him it was at jo anne fabrics so he called me when he got to the store and i had to guide him into and thru the fabrics to the rack where it was displayed and tell him to look for it on the bottom right hand corner :D
i have been wanting to try a CQ square and this book seems a good place to start now i have to get myself to jo annes and do some damage to the gift card i received from dad for christmas :D

Hi Tammy -- you looked at my books now I'm looking at yours and I have this one -- it's great -- and not just for adding beads to quilts!

Tammy, what a wonderful and original idea your son had for your gift!! I'm sure you were so "surprised" when you opened it!!! LOL!!! I usually just "buy" what I want, hand it to whomever is gifting it to me and it makes it so much easier! But I love the story and how you guided him by phone to the "exact" location!!! The main thing is..YOU HAVE THE BOOK!!!

Hi Tammy,,,
The book looks good, I didn't realize you were interested in CQ.
I have been saving silks ans satins etc, for ages and finally had a workshop last fall.. We started with a cushion and do you think I can find my stuff I started@!!!!! Honestly!! Oh well I plan to give the studio a good cleaning in the new year and hopefully I will find it amonf other lost items then..VBG
I spent the day playing with my new embellisher machine and did a lovely journal cover. I was soooo pleased with it.and to think I have had the machine since October but no time to play;-}Anyway I think I will post a picture and use it as my give a way along with a few ither things...for playing the reindeer game . I really didn't know what I was going to give but I tyhink this would be nice,,,,
Anyway... You read up on your CQ and I want to see what you do..
Happy CQ...ing;-}
((((hugs))))

I love this book because it also addresses silk embroidery and stamping on fabric as well as beding the images you have stamped which I use on all kinds of creations like journal covers, mini quilets, wall quilts, etc. FUN FUN FUN. What did you get at Joanne's?
