The good...



I recently ran across this mag at my dentist's office. It is called Real Simple and I think it is a great publication. It is full of recipes, beauty and household tips and practical advice like "To sharpen household scissors, cut a piece of sandpaper with them". Probably wouldn't use that tip on my best applique scissors but it works great for those cheap ones that we all have a million pairs of. you can check it out here.

They talk about this...

Hi, I have been reading Real Simple since it came out, good that you found it, and the BODY AND SOUL is really cool, we grannies love it and my daughter-in-law loves it too...so it isn't age specific..there is NATURAL HOME, which is a fav here and also MOTHER EARTH NEWS, and old common sense stand by..all these publications enable people to think they CAN DO THINGS BY THEMSELVES, with a bit of help from Pattern Designers like you, and they do not need to get all that garbage from the walmarts from china, they can do handmade and create special spaces and places, so thanks for that, Barb!

Amazon.com recently had an offer for Real Simple for $5 a year. I took advantage and I love it.

Hey I’ve been following your blog for a while now!!! I think that this might be something you would be interested in. Maybe you’d like to participate or just do a little post about it! I’d love to see it be a great book ☺ (P.S. I’m not getting anything for passing the message along!)

They posted on their blog:
I'm very pleased to organize the first-ever Quilter's Cookbook with recipes from quilters around the world. Everyone is welcome to submit a recipe, a photo of their favourite quilt and a story for inclusion in the Cookbook. The submission deadline is November 28, 2009.
The Quilter's Cookbook will be available for sale as a downloadable PDF file in early December 2009. The price will be determined based on the number of recipes submitted and the number of advertising sponsors.
The Cookbook is being created as a fundraising effort to help off-set some of the costs associated with running the Quilting Gallery site and to fund new community-based features planned for 2010. Please help support the community!
The theme for this Cookbook is "Quick and easy recipes, so we can get back to quilting!".
