My Favorite Books

I got this idea from Kate Harpers blog, I thought it was a good one. These are the books I go back to, when I moved 2 years ago I got rid of a bunch of books, not these. I go back to them some for information, some for inspiration. I especially love the Talking with Artists, I have all 3 books. Every once in a while I will sit down with a cup of coffee and read through those, it for me is a motivator. The Painted Crafts I get a kick out of because it has an artist Peg Miller, that was my Moms name, her actual name was Bringfriede, she was German,  but when Americanized it became Peg. Peg in the book did work that I think my Mom would  have done had she taken an interest in painting, she never did, but was creative with rug hooking and  gardening. She never had nothing to do, luckily I inherited that.
When I painted my gourds I did them Peg Miller style.
I got the color manual because Loreen Leedy suggested it, she was my first artist friend in Florida, I am always amazed at the both digital and quilting art that she creates.


  1. That is a fine pile of books, Susan! A ton of great ones for me to check out- thanks for posting! Hope you are doing well!

  2. Hey, Sue, thanks for the shout-out. : ) That color manual is a digital artist's best friend. And your art, bulbs, and gourds are pretty amazing, too!
