Made with Moxie: Quilting Isn't Funny by The Bitchy Stitcher

Quilting Isn't Funny by The Bitchy Stitcher

Here's something you may not know about me: I love to read. Books, magazines, blogs, you name it. Other than the board book I just fished out of my washing machine, I love books. (Thank you, children. It was really no longer a book but millions of effing pieces of wet cardboard all over flannel, fuzzy knits and tulle. Yeah, tulle.)

What you do already know is that I have a love of the bitchy. The boat shakers. The people who don't really care what "people" think. You should know that I love Megan Dougherty, aka The Bitchy Stitcher. Megan writes a funny ass blog about quilting. Because quilting is funny. And frustrating. And Megan writes some funny stories. So many so, that she wrote a book.

The funniest quilting book I've ever read. Thank God someone has a sense of humor around here. Enter to win a free copy of Quilting Isn't Funny by Megan Dougherty The Bitchy Stitcher.

Quilting Isn't Funny is a self-published book of awesomeness. If you quilt or someone you know does, you need to get a copy of this book. Once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. I was laying in bed reading it on my Nexus, snorting and giggling. Sadly, my husband doesn't get quilting humor so I was left to keep it all to myself. I wish I could have read it with like minded quilty folk, like yourselves. (Megan, I'm thinking you need to do a book reading tour. All beatniky with a black turtle neck and a beret though please.)

Consider getting yourself this book as a stocking stuffer. They even come autographed! Buy one for your mom and mother in law. (That is, if your mother in law didn't already buy herself a copy, like mine did!) You can grab your own right here. If you are a husband or boyfriend looking for another great gift idea, I highly recommend the Quilter's Shirtless Man and A Spicy Burrito Calendar, or QSMASMC 2014. Yes, I'm not joking, it is a real thing. I have my own copy, thank you very much. It is a beautiful calendar chock full of lovely, mostly naked men with gorgeous quilts and scrumptious burritos. What more could you want?

I can't wait to get my own signed copy. It's going right in my bathroom. Hey, it's where all my favorite books go.

I was given a digital copy of this book for free so that I might review it. All opinions expressed here are my own. I have also ordered my own physical copies before Megan asked me to be on the tour. She's that funny and you know I love to support small, local and handmade.
