i have been seriously showered with gifts lately! all i can say is thank you !
i have made one quilt, thus far, in my lifetime. it took me 8 years. most of that time it was stashed in a bag. when i decided to finish it, it went so quickly. i could had kicked myself for putting it off for so long.
i have been tinkering with the idea of making another quilt. what first got me the bug was checking out all the pretty things that jan over at be*mused has been piecing.
and during one of my & corbett's virtual long distance conversations, we got to talking about denyse schmidt. her book has been on my amazon wish list for some time now. and wouldn't you know, that i got a box today with her book (and it's autographed !!!)(it says, "to denise from denyse" !) and a fat bag of scraps! WHOOO HOOOO !
OH! what to make first?! there are lots of smaller projects included in the book, such as coasters, an oven mitt, and some super cute slippers. i want to make something with the scraps first. i think i need to spend my weekend in my sewing room .....
