|A favorite must read every time.|
Monday Mornings tend to be a day of accounting for me. What miscellany did I accomplish over the weekend and what is on the agenda for the week. I almost feel like I am cheating if I don't accomplish some great project. Sewing related that is. A hold over from professional days, I am sure, I broke all the rules this weekend. I finished half the Holiday deconstruct on Saturday but being a little under the weather was a good excuse to kick back, read my new books and relax.
|While watching Downton Abbey I crocheted another Spindle Doily for one of the machines, not sure which one yet. Probably Miss Lolly after she has had "work" done!|
|So here is the big kahuna. I ordered this from Amazon.com over a week ago. I usually get what I order in 3 days. I was getting worried I have to tell you. I searched the local Joann's etc. and they did not have this book. Why you ask? Well, there is a charming on-line Yahoo group called Small Quilt Talk. I discovered the group via The Sentimental Quilter Blog. |
These ladies make the most fantastic small quilts and many use this book as a reference. There is a 2014 Monthly challenge on-going. The block for January is Bear Claw.
|Ta-Da, I am going to take my book to a binder and have a spiral-lay flat binding applied. I don't like wrestling with books while I work.|

- Blogger is getting really twitchy again. Not happy about that. Am considering a move......
- One more room to deconstruct and de-decorate, next year, I am going to re-evaluate the whole process. Lots of "re's" in that sentence.
- Since I am already two weeks behind in the Jan small quilt block I need to get on that.
