Just sharing a bit of this and a bit of that today. Here's a sneak peek at a new project I'm working on. Making one for me and one for a friend.
At quilting last week we sat and stitched these cute little owls while we visited and ate some yummy strawberry trifle.
I love how Janet had these surplus sewing machine bobbins displayed in a wire basket in her entry way - you can definitely tell that a quilter lives at her home because of little touches like this scattered throughout the house.
I've recently discovered two relatively new rug hooking blogs who also have rug hooking businesses. Heavens-to-Betsy has some fun designs - I sent away for their wool swatches and they arrived in my mailbox yesterday - oh my goodness - they are absolutely beautiful! It's so interesting to read on their blog about the behind the scenes details of how the wool is designed and milled. I think it's so cool that this is a small family owned business and I think that must be why they can offer their wool at the low price of $19/yd!
Another new place is called Wicked Wool. They have wool, patterns and other supplies available on their website. Plus a free pattern for a darling spring design.
And one last picture of the footstool I hooked for my mother-in-law - here it is in it's new home.
