Couldn't get much better
Really. I had the opportunity to look through an early copy of Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts on Saturday before teaching my class.
I knew it would be a great book, but it's even better than I expected! Absolutely beautiful design and photography, with fantastic projects as well. I'm going crazy waiting for it to arrive so I can spend more time reading it and studying all those tantalizing instructions!
And, ah, Hillary and Kathy, how did you manage to keep this a secret for so long? Love the elephant and the pencil roll you contributed to the book! Wow, there are so many talented people in blogland!
So as if that wasn't enough excitement for one early Saturday morning, then I had a few minutes to look around the shop. I haven't been in for more than two months because we were away, and I was blown away by all the new fabrics that have arrived. The entire bottom shelf of the shop is filled with unusual Japanese fabrics. Unbelievable selection! I gave my credit card a good workout before leaving.
Next I'll give the washing machine a little business, and then we'll be sewing away. It's about time for some craft posting around here, isn't it?
