    Just opened mail, gift from friend

    Front cover:

    1. pretty fabric is not acceptable. go right back and exchange it for something you feel sorry for.
    2. realize that patterns and templates are only someone's opinion and should be loosely translated. personally, i've never thought much of a person who could only make a triangle with three sides.

    back:

    6. throw away your seam ripper and repeat after me: "Oops. Oh well, no one will notice."

    I have this book and have intended to reread it (it's been over two years). Thanks for the reminder.

    It's a good "laugh-out-loud" book.

    I love this book. I read it every now and again, especially when I'm getting all tensed up over a quilting project. this book helps me to laugh my stress away and accept what I sew is still good.
    Enjoy!!:)

    Someone gave me this as a gift a couple of years ago. I have read a couple of times. Very good advice, and very, very funny! And, she's also written 'Stash Envy', another good one. She is very talented, both in quilting and writing, and is one smart cookie (and no, she's not a relative!!).

    I purchased it from a forum member and laughed all the way through it. And ... identified a little too much.

    We certainly can take ourselves too seriously, can't we. My mom keeps reminding me that quilting should be fun. I agree.

    I have that book, it's very funny. The author is Lisa Boyer and she has another book called "Stash Envy," that is also very funny. She is definitely not the quilt police, but a real person. :)

    I have another book aimed towards husbands called" Help! I married a quilter" by Mark Hyland. This one is also funny.
