“On the Tenth Day of Wishing,
I’d love a good read.”
And what can be better if you are not quilting or sewing, than reading about it? Well, I thoroughly enjoyed Lisa Boyer’s books, which a friend sent to me. My favorite was Stash Envy, where Lisa provides a humorist’s view of our hobby world. It encompasses such topics as:
- The virtues of lumps in a quilt.
- How to share your bum fat quarter at a fabric exchange.
- How crocheting doilies will drive you back to quilting.
- How to cope when your quilts lack depth and dimension.
- Every chapter is short and sweet, and you could actually multi-task and read a chapter during commercial breaks of your favorite PBS quilting show.
- 140 pages
So while one book is good for a couple of days, you might want further quilting lessons from Lisa with That Dorky Homemade Look.

When the seam ripper can’t be found, humor will be.
