I am hopeful that this week you are able to find me over here without any problems! I hope you will bear with me as I continue to work out any kinks ;).
This past week our youngest started Cyber school and, seeing as I am his "learning coach" and am supposed to supervise his class time, I thought I'd be getting all kinds of time in my quilt room ( where we very cleverly found him a learning space!)....Turns out that that was not the case exactly, but then I have to give myself some time to get back into this new routine.
My husband was cleaning up our basement on the weekend and brought me 2 bins. Inside were loads of quilts, patterns, kits, and fabric! Yahoo....felt a little bit like Christmas to me! The things is that I hadn't seen these items for years ( and how that is possible when we just moved 2 years ago I don't understand!), but I'm happily reunited with my treasures! Here are some of the items I found inside:
Speaking of Christmas projects, I have loaded another stitchery in my hoop from the Love & Hugs from Australia group. This one is by Anni Downs and I do love her designs so very much!
This past week I was able to pick up a few new (used) goodies too and came home with these patterns and these bias tape makers. Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet uses these a lot in her creations so I thought it would be handy to have a big set of different sizes. Besides, for $2 I wasn't going to leave them behind!
I also picked up this pattern, which is not quite collage, but sorta, kinda ;).
Here you see my fabric choices under the pattern and I am excited to play a bit with this! I follow a collage quilting group on Facebook and bought this book from the founder to hopefully learn more about collage quilting:
And finally I have to share two of my most favorite magazines! One arrived in the mail ( finally!!), and the other I found at the checkout in the grocery store this past week. I adore both these magazines and can't wait to sit and grab a cup of tea and dive into reading them!
Phew, this turned into a long post so thanks for sticking with me!
Until next time~happy creating!
