Hello!!! Did you guys have a great first day of the new year?!!? lol
The Podcast will be back next week so look forward to that. I already have a bunch of written/audio ready to go so YAY!
These are the books that I look at ALL the time. Some of them may seem a bit redundant but they each offer something that the other one doesn't have. I touch these time and time again and would HIGHLY recommend them. But everyone has different tastes and needs AND , NO book is going to do you ANY good if you aren't going to read it, use it and apply it :-).
This is the year you will see me APPLY the things that I am learning from my books! :-) Since I haven't been sewing (machine still hasn't gotten back to me YET,but it is SUPPOSED to ship this week) I have been becoming VERY familiar with my sewing books. Marking new techniques I want to try and trying to learn where different things are in my books so when I get ready to try something new, I will know where it is.
I will not list my sock stuff (books lol) until I actually knit a sock lol...see books will do you NO good if you don't read them lol.
I just got CS3 Extended so I have been using my books to learn that program.
