…and who knows that better than my Wool Crazy friend, Claire! Look at the sweet bundle of wool that Claire gave me for my birthday! The colours are wonderful and the texture is incredible… I wish you could stick your hand into the screen and give it a squeeze! It is so incredibly soft…
Let me turn the bundle so that you can see all the colours…
…lovely, don’t you think…?
This wool will be perfect for the Autumn Quilt from Heart to Hand!
Claire also bought me this gorgeous scarf which I wore yesterday when I ran some errands…very Spring-y! I should have taken a picture of it then…as it doesn’t go very well with my bathrobe!
Thanks so much, Claire!! So sweet of you!
On the QUILTING FRONT~
Renee Nanneman, designer and author for Andover Fabrics has been very busy…she has a new book coming out called ‘Pumpkin Patch Threads’. Many of the quilts in this book were made from Renee’s new line of 12 new wovens called— Pumpkin Patch Plaids! They are now out and you can get a better look at them at the Quilt Crow’s Online Shop. So lovely! But it gets better… she is also releasing a new line of 18 woolen plaids- that will go with these wovens.
And look at what Lynette Anderson has designed…fabric to go with her Scandinavian Christmas!! Very sweet!!
Lots of new fabric, books and patterns coming out…just in time for shows and market! We quilters had better get busy so that we can use up the old…before the new hits the Quilt Shops!!
Have a SEWING Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P
