Hey, did you know the new Quilt Sampler magazine is out? Woo-hooooo! I haven't had a chance to read it in any great depth yet, but a browse through the magazine makes me want to do a little quilt shop traveling!
And hey, did you know that Gran has taken the plunge into blogging? Chances are that if you have a blog, Gran has probably stopped by and commented at one time or another, so you may already know her. Click HERE to go over and visit Ms. Knot-y Embroidery Lady herself and welcome her to the Land of Blog! (And if you're good at putting two and two together, you're right--Gran writes very long class supply lists!)
Speaking of embroidery, I ran across this book in a fabric and craft store the other night and felt it needed to come home with me. Since I love Mary Engelbreit, I think her designs would be fabulous to embroider!
Remember a week or so ago, I decided the Back Home Again fabric in that cute little suitcase wasn't exciting me as much as it had in the beginning of the class, and I decided to start over with the Ellery line of fabric I had in my stash? I thought I'd share a photo with you of the blocks I've made so far. There are two more main blocks and half-sized versions of each, so only four more blocks to make before I can start thinking about setting these beauties! I'm VERY happy with these colors and prints, and making each block is awfully fun!
It's a funny thing--I really love the finished Back Home Again quilt in the original fabrics, but working with the smaller pieces for each block--well, I just didn't like it. How weird is that? I don't think I've had that happen to me before--have you?
Time now for bath and bed. I haven't been feeling great today, and I think it's probably a combination of allergies and not enough sleep, so I'm going to try harder on the sleep part tonight.
Before I go, though, just a couple follow up things--YES, I DO have a new refrigerator arriving Friday! All is well in that regard, as I received email confirmation from Sears this morning.
Also, if you're signed up for the Hat Party class on Saturday, there's a post following this one that you might want to read. And if you're in or around the Sacramento area, are interested in the class, and haven't signed up yet--there are still a couple spots left.
I'm glad you could stop by for a visit!
