Buy this DVD!

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006


I received this DVD in the mail this week. Gabrielle sent it to me because she dedicates one of the exercises to me! It is the something new from something old because I am the deconstruction queen, as you all know!

I had the best time watching this because I have never met Gabrielle in person, and I felt as if I was in the studio with her. She is such a natural in front of the camera. I liked how she just did the exercises as the camera rolled. She didn’t have things all cut up and stuff that was done ahead of time. She just simply talked and played in the studio. There are eight exercises in all.

If you go to Gabrielle’s blog, you can click on the store site in the sidebar. She has this and other DVD’s for sale.

Tomorrow I am attending the Columbia Stitchery Guild annual meeting and lunch. Rosalie Dace, an extraordinary quilter from South Africa, is the guest speaker. On Thursday and Friday, I am taking a class from her, titled “Up Close and Personal.” She was featured in the latest issue of Quilting Arts Magazine.

PS: Thank you to Debra Roby for her fix for my scanner. It is now working. I have to unplug it when not in use.
