Perfect Xmas Gift eBooks That Last A Lifetime

Perfect Xmas Gift eBooks will fill that stocking, making a great gift that lasts much longer than the holiday season. The ebooks are yours for a lifetime and can be used by you whenever you like, just like a normal printed book.

Whilst there are many who love to flick through a printed book, there is no doubt that an ebook can help the environment as it does not use trees, nor the enormous amount of water to make paper. Other advantages are that ebooks are searchable and portable.

Four Month Retrospective 2020 Work So Far

A four month retrospective of work produced so far this year. There has been so much work, that I thought I would recap. The start of this year went well, then Covid 19 hit, (so far I am grateful not to have contracted it as I am self isolating) but I did get shingles and sciatica. Therefore precious little has been achieved this month. This four month retrospective looks at everything I have made from January to April with regard to art quilts and ebooks.

The scrappy quilt is almost finished and that will see the launch of a new Scrap Quilt ebook.

All ecourses are now on craftcourses.com as well as my own website. Did I do well? I certainly produced a lot of work, which is available on the website under quilts or ebooks and there are always the ecourses too.

I’ll see you in May. Words, work and images copyright Karen Platt 2020
