Book Review:Fabrics and Florals

Fabrics and Florals by Jill Miller
I have always wanted to experiment with Fabric but don't have any sewing skills
by any stretch of the imagination much less a sewing machine.So it was a very happy moment
when I discovered this book
Chapter one: No Sew Fabrics
The other thing I find very helpful  is that by each project she will put Beginner, Intemediate, or Advanced
I think this is great because you can start wherever you are comfortable and as you skills improve
you'll have a project that will suitable for the new level
Chapter 5:Salvage Scrapbooking
I found very interesting because this a way to preserve your kids old onsies, or preschool years or
any person in your family whose memory you wanted to preserve.
Chapter 9:Silk Flowers and Foliage
This chapter is awe inspiring.Normally I hate too many florals on a layout but this is not the case.  It has
collage feel all over it .  There are some projects that incorparatae digital elements  that can be used but
definetely not mandatory
Chapter 12:Printing and painting on canvas
You can learn to print on canvas and cotton or use Fabric Paints with Paper just to mention a few of the
projects
I am only showing a part of the table  of contents there were alot of cool projects in the book that didn't
take up a lot of time or money which is why I strongly recommend checking this book out

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from.

I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
