what is on my bedside table?
or rather - what is on my garden table? (as I have been spending quite a lot of time outside this weekend).
"SIMPLY MODERNE" - this is a brand new magazine being published by Quiltmania, to mirror their "Simply Vintage".
I have also been told that this is to replace their "Special" issues.
Whichever is the case, I like this new issue very much, it is a place to show new ideas in quilts.
But of course, I am bias, Quiltmania magazines are my favourite; I like them all.
And yes, I have found something in there which has already gone on my "must do" list!
You can browse through a part of the magazine on their website .
This is not so new book, in fact first published some 15 years ago.The author is new to me and I have only just started reading it, so no recommendations, yet.
But I like the dedication by the author; I quote:
"For my beloved grandparents, Maria and Lev Handler, who have lived through
World War I, the Russian Revolution and the Russian Civil War,
who have lived through World War II,
the siege of Leningrad and evacuation,
through famine and purges, through Lenin and Stalin,
and in the golden twilight of their lives, through twenty non-air-conditioned summers of New York.
God bless you."
I will let you know....
