The weather is killing me folks. It's so wonderful and spring like outside, I can't make myself stay inside and sew. Thank goodness Phil says there's 6 more weeks of winter. Out here in California, we need it. In the meantime, we filled up the green waste can with plenty of leaves and weeds. I picked up some magazines this weekend. After Amy posted about a great bird quilt, I had to get the new American Patchwork and Quilting magazine to see it. Super cute. I can't wait to see the magic she works on it.
Had to pick up the latest Quilter's Home for a variety of reasons. First, of course, there are pictures of Alex's home in it. I know, I go there all the time, but I love seeing it through the eyes of someone else. It's every bit as wonderful as the photos show. And it looks like that all the time. Of course the other reason to buy it is in support of the controversial patchwork article. I guess being a California girl I'm not shocked by the quilts but I can imagine that some people are. Mark has a post on his blog talking about this issue, and I urge you to check it out. Also worth checking out is the good article on applique glues and the article on snark. I love the witty conversational nature of the magazine, and of course just want to say things like "All righty, poodles" and "by the way tadpoles". Because I'm like that.
Lastly, my Agatha Raisin book. Man I love village mysteries and Aggie is one of the best. Ok, time to fire up the sewing machine. See ya poodles!
