New Book

Wish I could say I've been sewing but this is as close as I've got. This is the new book by the mother/daughter team of Pam and Nicky Lintott. Their first book was just great so I bought this one from Amazon sight unseen, so far I do not think it is going to disappoint.

This one from the book is called Damask Rose, so pretty and feminine. Just one jelly roll, four fat quarters and fabric for binding.

This is another winner, Hidden Stars. I made this one year using Christmas fabrics and a starry-beige for the stars. All in all, there are eighteen projects in the books using jelly rolls, layer cakes and/or charm squares.

This is what has been occupying my free time, getting ready for a vacation. I keep second guessing what to bring for weather so different from here (Florida). And to compound the problem, we are flying a local airline (once we get to where we are going) that puts strict weight restrictions on all luggage. Don't you just hate that when you get somewhere and you ended up leaving something out you should have brought?
Well, decisions must be made as we leave tomorrow. Be sure to come back the end of July as I plan on having a giveaway, maybe with something from our vacation to Russia.

I'm going to have to keep my eyes open for that book...I love the quilts you showed...quite a teaser! Wow, Russia? Have a wonderful time. We have friends who just returned from a month long visit..they were doing some follow up from a short term missions trip they had done in the past....we can't wait to hear from them!

I have seen that new book and I think I will be purchasing it as well. Some of the projects look wonderful! You must be so excited to be going to Russia. A trip of a lifetime. I will be waiting to see some pictures when you return.
