Quilting Those Flirty 30's

I am so excited to share with you the cover of my new book Quilting Those Flirty 30's.  This book is very close to my heart and is a real family affair.  It's filled with a delightful array of quilts, cookie recipes, and fun stories that will make it a "keeper" both in your sewing studio and kitchen.  Look for it's release in May.  It was such a fun book to create and I hope you enjoy using it as much as I did writing it!

Happy New Year From Stanley Too

From my studio, Stanley also wanted to wish you a very Happy New Year as well.  He likes to be in included in all activities!  He doesn't miss much.

He has just recently had a hair cut and I have been saving his fur for the last few months to use in a felted piece.  I have in mind a silk shawl with his hair felted in with the wool along the edge.  It is so many lovely colors and so shiny.  Watch this space!  We will be sure to show you the results. We have a few more hair cuts to go, before I think we will have enough.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  I wish you all a wonderful 2011 filled with good health, laughter, and love.  And may you find lots of time to create!
One of my goals this year, besides eating healthy and finding time to get more sleep, is to do more felting.  I have been collecting the most wonderful threads in anticipation. Storage in my studio is always a challenge, as I am sure it is in yours too.  I found this wonderful large jar so now I can keep my threads on display. They look good enough to eat.  Great eye candy, as well as inspiration!  I can't wait to work with them.
