Yesterday I read Kyra Hicks' new booklet, a true gem! It is packed, I mean packed with information for such a small book. It goes a long way, I mean really long way, in filling the gap in quilting resources and information. I intentionally left it at the studio for fear that I'd start searching out the online resources and sites, close to 300, and would never ever get up from the computer all in the name of fun and expanding my brain. There are six original applique blocks by Francine Haskins included and I thought how fun it would be to make them and send images to both Kyra and Francine. Even though I can't handle making them now because my plate is full and I work so slow as it is, I do intend to make them within the coming year. Also, for someone whose head is as thick as mine when it comes to statistics, Kyra writes with such transparency on the topic and takes a layperson's tone toward presenting the info that I found myself really interested in something that would normally make my eyes go wide trying to understand. I had to pinch myself to make sure it was me! Thank you Kyra for being so kind for the thick-headed among us when it comes to numerical data.
