So today, I bought myself a little gift.
I have been looking at this book online for what seems like years. Today, I had a bit of time between meetings and I went into my local quilt shop. I was expecting a full sized book so I almost missed it. This little lovely is just 6" x 8" and with the spiral binding, it will be a wonderful resource for some creating stitching. I have been listening to Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry, a wonderful story of a young girl who does beautiful stitching - as if the thread became magic in her hands. I have a small piece of stitchery that I want to finish this summer and I think this book will be a great help.
I was visiting Julie's blog today and see that she has begun the 10th Anniversary Stitch Along with Lisa Bongean. I think I might have the right wool to do this but it will need to wait a few weeks. For now, I will keep working on the center blocks for my pineapple quilt and try to finish the second sleeve on my sweater and count the days quietly.
