My friend, Ruth Krening, came over for a slumber party. She comes to the cottage to decompress, listen to the pond and enjoy a little bit of quiet. We always look forward to seeing her. Ruth is a fabric collage artist who has been featured in Cloth, Paper scissors, Sew Somerset, Apronology and other craft publications. She loves vintage photos, too. Whenever Ruth visits, we take the  opportunity to catch up, review new and old books and  other publications. This time we reviewed Tracie Huskamp’s new book, “Nature Inspired: Mixed Media Techniques for Gathering, Sketching, Painting, Journaling and Assemblage.”
