Happy Sunday! Can you believe it is almost November already? I just don't know where the time goes. I sure haven't been good about posting lately, but I really don't have much to report. I have been busy with jewelry orders ever since the current issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine hit the shelves. If you haven't picked up a copy, make sure you get one! Here is the cover to look for (I love this quilt)-
A couple of the girls at F&P have been sending me their scraps and it's so much fun! You all know how much I love to receive fun mail - and to play with scraps from other people. Last week they sent some funky brights and more contemporary fabrics. These are so far out of my box - but they really were a lot of fun to play with. I made several new pieces with bright fabrics and will be posting them on my website later this week. I also have a brand new shape that I've been wanting to share forever. I've made several, then sold them to shops but I've not had a chance to get them on the website - so they will also be posted this week - hopefully tomorrow. I'm excited for you to see the new shape - it has been a bit of a challenge to cut the glass for them - but I love to have something new and different to offer.
Remember my Civil War Love Letter blocks? I haven't made any for quite awhile but I do still have a few in the archives that I haven't shared on my blog. I thought today would be a good day to show you some of them...
We had everyone here last night for a birthday party for my mom. Of course, I didn't take any pictures! Her birthday was actually a couple of weeks ago, but everyone has been busy and this is the first we could all get together. We made soup and sandwiches and pumpkin bars (yum!). It's always fun to get everyone together. My dad and brother have been working so hard in the fields that they were both tired. Dad took a nap in the chair - which he pretty much does every time they come over! But, he looked really tired - hopefully he will get rested up soon. Mom came over early and brought her latest knitting project. The yarn is really neat - but came in skeins - so we sat and rolled 13 skeins into balls. Of course with little Miss Callie around that was no easy feat!
I better go get to work so I can show you my new jewelry projects soon!!
Have a great day!
