Buy this DVD!


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.

    I have been debating on whether or not to buy the DVD. Thanks for the review. You are so lucky to be taking a class from Rosalie. I loved her work that was in QA.

  2. Dearest Gerrie, thanks for the great testamonial. I am so glad you enjoyed the newest of my babies. I had so much fun doing this one…just like you said everything was done on the fly to show you that you can do it if you want. Of course, I had to dedicate that segment to my partner in deconstruction….if it isn’t working just cut it up…maybe we should Photoshop a banner as our official motto. Thanks again; reading your review made my day.

    What a fun three days you are having! I am green with envy…loved the QA interview with Rosalie Dace.
    Would you like me to get you a copy of Barbara Taylor’s book? Our church office has a couple left over, last I checked, as we are doing a book review of it on Wednesday evenings. Just say the word.
