It Hit Home!

You must read the current issue of "Quilter's Home" - you really must. A dear local friend pointed out this particular issue to me on Friday night. She lurks on my blog and knew it would 'hit home'. (Hi Gwyn!)

The following articles hit home with me:

1. Mean Girls - How to put Quiltzilla in her place (remember I blogged about Quiltzilla on 11/19. Lots of great tips on how to deal with 'her'. :-)

2. Tips to Rev Up Your Quilting - great tips to get your Mojo back. (mine is returning slowing)

3. Managing Your Mess (the piles of magazines and such that are difficult to give up)

I hope that your days of full of happiness and joy - if you're experiencing extremely cold temps, please stay home - keep warm and stitch to your heart's content.

Thanks for popping by to visit with me! I'll be back later with many, many pictures and updates.

In Friendship!

Sounds like some really good articles. :) Can't wait to see what you have been up to. We got at least two feet of snow this week and now it's raining....

Hanne said...

It is great to see your mojo is returning!

Hi Darlene, I just love that magazine. When I read that article I thought of you. I hope that you are ready for her next time! It is snowing quite hard here now. The wind is blowing about 30 miles per hr. The temp is 12 degrees. I don't even want to think of the wind chill factor. It is toasty warm inside with some eggnog..., working on Christmas.

Sorry, I am not sure what happened here.

Hey Dazee!! Long time no see, girlfriend! What ya been doin'? :D Dang, I didn't buy that magazine, and I bet they're all gone. :( What are the tips for managing this mountain of books and magazines that I get buried under? :) I need quick and SIMPLE! ROFL

That looks like a great magazine. I don't think I have ever seen that one at the newstand, but I think I'll have to go out and look for it.

Carol said...

Looks like a wonderful issue of the magazine...need to go get that one and figure out how to control the mess...LOL! Thanks for the review.

Pam said...

Looks like there might be a couple of articles in there I need to read!! I think I need to think about how to manage my mess and that might get my mojo happening. Because I just know there are a bunch of patterns I want to work on in my mess!!

Maybe that can be my New Years resolution - LOL!!

Mar said...

Oh I love that magazine. So different from others out there and some great articles for helping with those 2008 resolutions.

Quiltzilla - I think we all know one, unfortunately.

Ginger Patches said...

O.k. now I can't wait to read it, it's in my room in the Barnes and Noble bag just waiting, I will definitely have to start with the Mess one :)

Erin said...

sounds great Darlene! will have to purchase the magazine!

Wendy said...

This magazine sounds like it would be a good read. I need "help" with my mess...lol.

Libby said...

I'll have to get out and see if I can find it *s*

Owens Family Adventures said...

I just bought that magazine for the first time last week. Quiltzillas are the worst, aren't they! They take some of the joy out of quilting and make people not want to share their wonderful creations. The article was a good one!
Merry Christmas!

I remember that post about QUiltzilla and I went back to have a look at it. You had 80 comments! Obviously a topic that we quilters feel strongly about. I will have a look at that magazine when I go to the shops. They are very expensive to buy here as they are imported, sometimes up to $20. I often buy the Better Homes one, and I did have a subscription to Fons and Porter for quite a while. I love the US mags.

I will have to find that magazine - the articles sound very interesting! You'll be armed and dangerous next time "Quiltzilla" comes around!! Woe be unto her!! tee hee!!
