More Books

I find I can't read for too long so these books are perfect, lots of pictures.

I have bought the Japanese version of Yumiko Higuchi's books so when I saw an English edition I thought it might explain some of the Japanese text I couldn't work out.

I bought my copy from Amazon but I think it would have been cheaper at the Book depository.  The difference in price seems to be caused by the exchange rate.    The format of the book is a lot bigger in the English version which is great for seeing the stitching and using the patterns but the Japanese books contain a lot more designs.  I found that I had translated most of the requirements but am still a bit in the dark about the type of linen fabric that she uses.  The images in this book are of a very high quality and this is a great big plus for me.  All in all I can recommend this book.

The next book is by Sharon Boggon, "The visual guide to Crazy quilting design".

Now, there are a lot of books on Crazy Quilting but not that many that focus on how you design your pieces.  This book is really dense with information on all that stuff you need to think about before you stitch and it also has lots of stitches.  So much so I might even consider doing some Crazy Quilting.

And the third book is a how to book on Marketing by Teena Hughes.  50 Marketing Secrets of Successful Women.

There are lots of tips on how to market your products from women who are doing it successfully.  The women who have contributed come from a number of different countries and it is a great resource to help you get your product or service out there.  If you have a small business this is a most helpful book. (And I am one of the 50 women quoted in the book.)

It is thank you. I am back in next week for the last operation and will be glad when that is over.
