Off…for VACATION!

NEST-FROM SUMMER GATHERINGS NEW BOOK
SPARKLERS QUILT-SUMMER GATHERINGS

Well… It’s time for a vacation….Nick and I are leaving for Mexico today.  We have not had a vacation in 10 years, or since we started the wholesale business.  So it’s time to re-connect and have some fun.  I plan on PLAYING REAL HARD. I’m going to do all the activities the resort has to offer. (at least one day)

The big question was–Are you going to bring any sewing?  Well after a lot of pondering ….I am bringing along a penny rug project, a just for me project-nothing for the shop or a pattern.  This will be for airport sewing only. You all know I will go nuts if I just sit there.

I’ve downloaded 3 books into my e-reader, Dear John, Shutter Island and I can’t remember the 3rd one.  Hopefully this will help me relax and veg a day or two.

I am giving you all a peek at two of the 28 projects in our newest book “Summer Gatherings” (real original- I know…)coming out in April.  Carole and I have worked real hard on this book and can’t wait to see it in print.    It is now all in the hands of the graphic designer and the printer.  So hopefully by the time we get home, Carole will already have the first proof in her hands, but I am not even going to think about it once during the next 10 days!

My “Nest” is framed with an 8×10 roughed up frame made by Nick and Carole made “Sparklers” using all vintage fabrics and i think these are about 5″ blocks.  The little dolly quilt is how Carole tests her batting, threads and quilting…She’s so smart….

All for now…LB
