Things have been as crazy as always, but I'm beginning to see the light of day here. My new co-position of programs chair at the guild is slowing down as Annette and I have set the schedule for next year and have signed on for a monthly Sit & Sew for our members. Good thing, I'm slated to take over the prez. at the other guild that I belong too...I'm already having one way chats with many of the member about the guild. More on that later, I want to take this post and get some things out of the way.
I received this wonderful PIF from Clara at Cannellaemele. Clara lives in Italy, how cool is that? Her blog name translated to English means cinnamon and apples, and it makes perfect sense! Her wonderful blog is filled with examples of her hand work and often she shares pictures of her wonderful cooking. If you'd like to see a little of Italy head on over to Clara's blog and become a follower. She posts in Italian as well as English so it's a very easy read for those of us state side. Okay, here's what she sent, isn't it adorable???
Easier than trying to take picture of self while wearing apron...
Isn't her hand work beautiful???
My hubs is second generation Italian, I muddied the waters being of 'mut' decent. I am lovin' this new book that Clara sent!
I've picked these as the first things I'm going to try. Can't wait!!!
I've just about got all of the quilts that I've been working on in files and posted but not published in the Insanely Cheap Quilting blog. I've shameless fallen waaaayyyyy behind and not posted since October 4th, which was about the same time I unloaded the camera. I have no idea how many quilts I'm going to have to share, but I'm just going to post them all at once. I've got more that I'm working on/with.
Checked out Suzan at Reluctant Quilter this morning, looks like the fabric is flying! She's on a bag marathon and her room is a mess!! BLESS her for sharing, makes me feel good!! Also poor Linda at Fiber Fabrications is dealing with some pretty vicious spiders - ICK!!! I noticed that The Mennonite Girls are making some pumpkin cookies- YUM, but I'm thinking half the batter will get some mini chocolate chips. Terry is doing more hand work and it looks great as usual, check this out: Terry's Treasures. These are just a few of the blogs that I've quickly hit. I still need to catch up with Kelly, Barb, SewCalGal, Allie, just to name a few of my favorite gals!! Looking forward too some great blog reading!
Off to the quilting room, need to get things in order for a guild meeting tonight and another quilt on the frame. Thanks for checking on me,
love to hear what you've got to say.......
