You meet the most wonderful people in Blogland! Kathy Cardiff is one such person! She is VERY sweet and very talented!!
As you all know, this is a quilting blog..I (mostly) write about quilting…quilt designers, quilt books, quilt patterns, quilt shops, quilt shows…well you get the idea…anything to do with quilting! If something catches my interest I like to write about it! If a designer WOWS me then I shout their praise from the roof tops!
Lately Kathy Cardiff has come under my radar…man I am SEW impressed with her designs!! Her ‘Barn Quilt’ blew me away (read about it HERE) and she has designed so many gorgeous wool projects that she will keep me in wool until I am a VERY old lady! SEW of course I have been tooting her horn for some time now! (you can hear me tooting HERE:)
Would you believe that as a thank you, Kathy sent me a copy of her latest book… ‘Cottage Keepsakes’!
HOW SWEET IS THIS?!!
Let me take the book outside for some non-glare shots..ahhh much better!
A YEAR of pincushions..and dang cute ones at that!! And look to the top right…a message from Kathy Cardiff! Told you she was nice!
The sunflower has my heart! I HAVE to make this one!
OH…and the mother hen sitting on her nest of eggs…ahhhdorable!
If you want to see the REAL deals then you need to go to The Country Loft in La Mesa California! So sweet and wouldn’t they make a wonderful gift?!
If you would like to make a pincushion for every month of the year then you need to hurry to Kathy’s online shop to get your own calendar of pincushions… ‘Cottage Keepsakes’ can find HERE!!
Looks like March is the Irish Spring Roll…I better get stitching! LOVE IT!!
Thanks SEW much, Kathy!! I will treasure this book!
I can’t wait to see what Kathy designs next…One things for sure, I will be the first in line for her ‘Barn Quilt’ book…hopefully coming out soon!! I’ll keep you posted…
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P
