I guess I hadn't realized that I have let so many days slip by.
Family 'issues' sometimes just drain the energy out of a body....
But I have been stitching....
an explosion of color!
I also have been doing a little reading and dreaming....Sarah Fielke's Quilting From Little Things....
I must say, it is a gorgeous book....it feels good in my hands....the pictures are wonderful....and the content - SUPERB!
I love quilting books that are truly instructional....not leaving the reader wanting for more information to finish the project at hand.
This is a keeper!
it really is an explosion of color. hope things are ok with your family. fabric is always a good outlet. ;) xoxoReplyDelete
Love the lime green and the fussy-cut boomerangs.ReplyDelete
I hope everything is okay? You've been quiet! Your Rose Stars are great! And the sox match today! I wonder which quilt from your new book is one your list?ReplyDelete
Hope that the issues aren't major and are more of the everyday variety.ReplyDelete
I think time goes the same place that socks go - somewhere between washer and dryer they disappear...
Your pieces are beautiful. I hope you are able to find some peace while stitching during your time of family issues.ReplyDelete
Looks really good...lots of fun colour! Time does whip past...hope all is okay there!ReplyDelete
Each one has a story of its own. They are very beautiful.ReplyDelete
the blocks are brilliant! I haven't heard about this book, have to look this up on Amazon!ReplyDelete
stunning piecing Mary - such wonderful wonderful mixes of colour and pattern.ReplyDelete
(You're rocking the socks again aren't ya!?!)

I always love to see the gorgeous vibrant colours which you choose. I know the feeling with Life and Family and Work getting in the way of stitching and being creative. You hang in there.ReplyDelete
