Great Book

   I was browsing through Borders (book store) a week ago and noticed this book. It is written by Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State. It is bascially a book about her collection of pins. The pictures are gorgeous, and she intersperses it with tidbits of information about her personal and polictical life. A very interesting read and the pins give a lot of artistic inspiration. I was put off at first by the price ($40), but as fate would have it, I got a 40% off coupon  with email, AND then got a $15 gift certificate unexpectedy, so I got it for less than $10..


  1. I saw Ms. Albright on one of the news shows and thought this might be a interesting book. I bet some of the pins could be inspiration for quilt work (embellishment, beading, embroidery)? Hmmmmmmm

  2. Wow, this looks like a cool book! I would love to see it up close and personal.
