Quilts and More......

I don't know about you, but I just never have understood why the magazine companies always have us a season ahead.  But that's not important....anyway, the Summer "Quilts and More" magazine has just arrived at the shop.  (Would be nice if there were some more summer-like weather to go with it!)  It always has some super projects and you won't be disappointed this time either!  Jan and I found two projects we really liked and whipped
them out last week.  This little pincushion is made using the wool/rayon felt we carry, but you can use felted wool also.  We filled it with our ground glass and it will sit beside your work area and stay put!  The other project is this bag made from Moda's Color Me Happy line of ombre stripes.  Can you see the other colors in the picture?  (There's another project I still have in mind for these stripes, so stay tuned ~ okay?)  There are a lot of other fun ideas in this issue of the magazine, so you might take a quick *look see* when you are in the neighborhood!

I have a chance to write this at the shop....Jan is teaching her Beginning Hand Embroidery to a fun group of gals this morning, so I am sitting at my desk for a few minutes while Diane holds down the fort.  Do you enjoy hand work?  I like to have something going for the evening especially, when I can just sit and relax in my chair with the retired guy.  And I like to have a project to take camping with me in the summer too!  I'm guessing after today's class there will be a few more folks who also will enjoy that!  Okay....break's over....customers coming in.  Have a lovely Monday all!
