Hey everyone! I hope you all had a safe and happy new year! Because of the weather being so dreary, I thought I'd share some of my favorite vacation photos with all of you. Nah, just kidding! I've only been on an actual vacation once and it didn't behold any beautiful wonders like these. I put them on my Christmas list, but I think Santa forgot me! Oh well, I'll have to try harder next year. Until then, I still enjoy looking at them and hope you do too.

I haven't had a poem in quite a while and when I came across this one, I actually laughed out loud, enjoy!
The Month After Christmas
Twas the month after Christmas, when all through the house. Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse! The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste, at the holiday parties had gone to my waist! I remember the marvelous meals all prepared, the gravies and sauces, the beef "nicely rared". The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese and the way I NEVER said,"No, thank you, please." As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt and prepared once again to do battle with dirt, I said to myself (as only I can)," You can't spend the winter disguised as a MAN"! So away with the last of the sour cream dip, get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip! Every last bit of food that I like must be banished, till all of the additional ounces have vanished! I won't have a cookie not even a lick, I'll want only to chew on a celery stick! I won't have hot biscuits or corn bread or pie, I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry. I'm hungry...I'm lonesome...and life is a bore! But isn't that what January is for? Unable to giggle no longer a riot! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD DIET! AUTHOR UNKNOWN
Now remember, we're back on schedule for the specials. One special every two weeks and the monthly special.
This week we have a very popular book by the queen of Stack-n-Whack, Bethany Reynolds! If you're not familiar with the Stack-n-Whack method, let me explain. As according to Bethany, the Stack-n-Whack method is an easy way to create blocks with unique kaleidoscope designs. This method engages your eyes and mind through each step, from cutting, to piecing, to finishing. New designs emerge and change like patterns in a kaleidoscope! Never boring, certainly challenging, but easy enough for even beginners to do! This book includes 12 new quilt patterns using three of Bethany's simple methods. From classic to contemporary, in no time you will be making butterflies, fans, flowers, optical illusions and much more using the Stack-n-Whackier method! Filled with color illustrations, measurement charts for each project and paper templates, this book has it all and more. This week when you buy Bethany's Stack-n-Whackier book for $21.95, your s/h will be only $1.99! That's a savings of $4 to you! Add Bethany's trademark Stack-n-Whack ruler and your s/h will remain the same. Order today and soon you too will be a true Stack-n-Whackier quilter! This special lasts for 2 weeks, so check it out!

Questions and Answers with Kaye.
Q: How do you select guests to come on your show?
K: We select teachers who have written patterns or books that we feel would interest our viewers. If you have a pattern or book, you can send it to us for review.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration for all the different quilts you do.
K: Sometimes I'll be inspired by a certain fabric that I think would look good a certain way. Sometimes different events, holidays, paintings or photos can spark an idea. You can find some kind of inspiration in everything you come in contact with and most of the time, you don't have to look very far.
Q: What did you use to get the landscape effect in Strip Quilting Projects 8 and how?
K: I just used a fabric metallic paint and painted over the fabric. Make sure if you want different texture and depth, you don't coat the fabric completely.
