(NOTE--BAD PHOTOS. I AM FOREVER TAKING LATE NIGHT PHOTOS IN THE DARK AND THEY NEVER TURN OUT...BUT YOU'LL GET THE IDEA.)
I did find several comforting things to make me feel a bit better.
I spent some time listening to this WONDERFUL Cd that Angie sent to me. Angie and I go way back and I feel blessed that while we knew each other in high school, we call each other friends today.
Next came this book from Sew Cal Gal. I won it during the Pets On Quilts show. Darlene picked this out for me; knowing I would love that it has EPP, FPP, applique--many fun projects I will enjoy doing. I am not a scrap quilter so I think I'll have fun taking projects that were meant for scraps and making them 'my own' by using larger pieces of fabric.
Next up was this book from Sue. For those of you that don't know, Sue herself wrote this and I am absolutely in love with it.(Plus it is signed to me...I know someone famous.!!) I used my sick time to read the book from cover to cover. I love every quilt. Sue also gives quilting suggestions with each quilt. You will be hearing more from me in the future about this book!
Finally, My Sister sent a pile of pre-cut denim squares for doggie blankies. Inspiration to get back into the sewing room again. My poor TRex (the denim machine) must be feeling very neglected lately.
Thanks ladies for giving me some sick time comfort!
