Wheee, I have internet this morning. Not a great connection, but at least I can get a few things done. Got my iPod loaded with podcasts so I have something to listen to again, got mostly caught up on blogs, and was even able to upload a couple of photos for you.
My copy of Bonnie Hunter's Scraps & Shirttails arrived. Woohoo. Lily with the page turned to my favorite quilt in the book, Cactus Patch:
It's so exciting that a friend has published a book. whee. Not only that but she sent me a small box of her repurposed fabric - some of it is pictured in the book on pages 14 thru 17. I have famous fabric - I just wish I was as good as Bonnie at using it. She's amazing.
Here are some little blocks I made. Not thrilled with them, thinking maybe these would be better if I mixed some solids in.
Or maybe the scale of the fabric is too large for the size of the blocks... Ah well, the only way to find out if something works is to try it and PLAY.
I have to be quick with this post since my husband needs to get online too while the getting is good. Something boring about paying bills. Before I go though, want to give a shout-out to Be*Mused Jan who's working on what hints to be a wonderful little space-themed quilt and who posted a link to the best Halloween costumes I've seen in ages - for plants. I wish I had a craft store nearby (that didn't cost an arm and a leg) - very inspiring.
