::In My Dreams::

Sew & Tell Friday














All my finishes, that is. No time for actual sewing this week. Aside from dreaming of whipping my WIPS into shape (so close yet so far), I got my copy of Liberated Quiltmaking II by Gwen Marston. It is every bit as good as the first book--full of interesting discussion/instruction on design, construction and color. Now for a day of liberation. . . .

Maybe next Friday. For some great FINISHES, got to Sew & Tell at amylouwho's--you'll love reading about what everyone else is doing!

Gratitudes
  • New coffee maker--programmable!
  • Views of the (muddy) ground--very little dirty snow left!
  • Teenage boys who know how to step up when DH is out of town--turns out they can walk the dog, cook, take out the trash . . . .

I bought the book recently too! and I don't buy many quilting books. I've got it sitting near the table where I can pick it up and DREAM away! Love looking at all those quilts!

Check out Lazy Gal Quilting. She has some great praises for the book and has similar tastes in quilting. I want to make something like this one day. Hope you can finish for next week.:)
