    Just have to tell everyone about one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure to read. If you are in need of inspiration, this will do it. Each and every story is from the heart and brings goosebumps to your skin smiles to your face and the occassional tear to your eye. Nice little quilting tips and such in between these true quilting stories as well. If you haven't read this one...go to your local library and ask for it. I haven't found it at a bookstore yet...but believe me...I WILL. Just to have on hand for those sewing slumps we all experience from time to time. Not to mention, just how wonderful it is to read something POSITIVE in this day and age.

    It's on amazon.com - you can just type in the title, and pop, there it is!

    It REALLY is awesome!! Such positive, touching stories!! You're gonna just love it Diana!!! I'm so glad you're getting it. Isn't that inter-library system fantastic!!! I'm hoping to be able to get one of Eleanor Burns books through ours soon. They're looking for it for me anyway.

    Yes, it is really neat, that they have the inter-library loan! This is the first time I've ever really used it! It said the book would be sent 'when available', so I don't have any idea of when, so it'll be a nice surprise when it comes! :D

    Just make sure to get them in order. I couldn't get into them at first for she talks too much spanish and for a country girl-deep rooted-I just had a hard time understanding them and the fact I didn't start at first w/book 1. So I started over after many, many months of not reading them...once I made it to 'Kansas Troubles' she had me hooked:)Go to: http://www.earlenefowler.com/books.htm check them out in order:)Skeat
