Quilty Reading
Topic: reading

Way back in 2007 I listed a bunch of authors I like to read because they include crafts in their fiction. Since they write in series there is always something new coming from them.

Since I started this new hobby of quilting I have discovered another list of crafty authors that delve into the topic as they solve their mysteries or tell their story. YAY! So, I now share these authors with you.

FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE:

Thayer, Terri

Zane, Carolyn

Chiaverini, Jennifer

Bostwick, Marie

Sachitano, Arlene

O'Donohue, Clare

Fowler, Earlene

There are many others that have written a single book that combines quilting and fiction. I've just included the series writers.

Picture This
Now Playing: pretty as a picture
Topic: reading

Photographs of loved ones, whether family or friends, are the cornerstone of scrapbooking. Thus, growing in the art of photography will help you improve your scrapbooks and your ability to capture your memories and feelings for the future.

Toward this end Allison Tyler Jones has produced a tremendous work entitled Expressions: Taking Extraordinary Photos for Your Scrapbooks and Memory Art (North Light Books, 2007, ISBN 1581809093). This 128 page paperbound book focuses entirely on portraits, working through recording the cycle and special events of your life.

There is nothing about this book that you will not love. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Lind, Hailey - Art Lovers

Marberg, Peg - Interior decorating

Myers, Tim - Candlemaking

So, pick out a craft related mystery for your reading pleasure.
