Three new books to read/review

Just arrived three new books for me to read and review.  First to arrive was Artistic Photo Quilts by Charlotte Ziebarth, followed by Piecing with Pixels by Sandra Hart and Gudny Campbell and finally Digital Textile Design by Melanie Bowles and Ceri Isaac.  Perhaps it is a good thing the sewing machine is seriously ill.  I recently received a copy of Print & Pattern by Bowie Style, this is an excellent reference book for those interested in surface design; for more on print and pattern visit  These should keep me going for a while, well until the sewing machine is fixed, what was that I was saying about a duster and a vacuum cleaner?
