I can't believe its been so many days since I posted last! The week just got away from me. Frankie had some oral surgery with unexpected complications, so I went and stayed a couple of days with her. It was nice, as she recovered immediately and we just hung out relaxing. No chores at her house so I did some reading. I normally just read before bed, reading during the day just seems so decadent.. I know, weird. But I read a bunch of my book Death Under the Dryer. Murder mystery of course, a series. I normally don't get hardbacks but that was my only option for this book. It came with a paper jacket but it also has the cover art on the hard cover and OHMYGOSH could I love that more? It reminds me of a kid book. Very fun.
I also have the new McCalls. It's crammed with people we know. In order of appearance there's Penny and her new bag, The Big Bag Theory. Cute name, cute bag. Next up is Megan and her charming Little Blooms quilt. She shares some nice techniques with us. Holly has another really sweet quilt.. she's the Magazine Maven lately isn't she? There's a nice tutorial on wide binding by Cheryl, who made the quilt. Next up is ModaLissa and Enduring Elegance. She's featuring a couple of wonderful Moda lines in her quilt. And lastly and definitely not least is my darling friend Tammy! She's got the cutest table runner, Woolen Posies, in her signature colors, pink and green. She's sharing some wool techniques and they're yummy! Be sure and check out the McCalls website for the cute little candle mat pattern.
Pictures aren't easy here at the dungeon, but I fused the last bird before quilt assembly on my quilt. This morning I need to embroider those little legs and then I can work on getting it together. There is just one cherry and one bird left, and that bird doesn't have any embroidery! I'm ALMOST DONE people. I could cry a little at the thought of it.
Ok, that's the news here. What's your news?
