Things have been quiet here because I’m still working through my move, but I have some fun projects and book reviews coming up as soon as I clear away the boxes! Be sure to check out the Improv action over on Sandi at CraftyPlanner’s blog in the meantime.

Sandi has posted a review of Malka’s book and some improv projects on her blog, as well as podcasts with Malka Dubrawsky and Jacquie Gering.

Do you listen to podcasts? I feel like a dinosaur admitting this, but even though podcasts have been around for quite a while, I just started listening to them this summer. And. I’m. Hooked.

I’m especially hooked on Sandi’s podcasts. Her interview skills and sound quality are both out of this world, and I love hearing her chat with her guests while I sew and drive.  You don’t need an iTunes account or any fancy device to listen to Sandi’s podcasts; she’s set them up so they can play right off her blog posts (as well as on iTunes and your fancy phones.)

Oh, and before I get back to breaking down boxes and finding my toaster, I want to be sure to mention that we’re rounding up some great prizes for the #improvquiltchallenge this month.  Just take a picture of your improv project and post to instagram with the #improvquiltchallenge tag.  You could win one of several prizes including Sherri Lynn Wood’s new Improv Handbook, spools of Aurifil Thread, and I’m throwing in $25 to Fat Quarter Shop!  More prizes will be announced throughout the month!

    I have been thinking of you a lot and hoping the move is going smoothly. I think it is really exciting that you and Sandi have teamed up for an improv month, and I totally agree that her podcasts are a wonderful listen. 🙂

    Curious to see what you think of the Improve Handbook – I love it and desperately hope to find a few quilty friends/new guild in KS to try a round robin idea with. We’re halfway through our drive… but it sounds like you’re well underway with unpacking! Happy getting settled : )

      So far, Sarah, I think it’s fantastic.  I’m a big fan of those books that can inspire and guide without just giving instructions for a dozen projects. This is one of those.  I’ll have more to say next week though!
