What I've been up to ??? It's been quite a while again since my last post!!!
The reason for my silence is that my dear friend from Portland passed away. We met 19 years ago in Portland and we had become very close friends. He was a model, a mentor and I admired him. We have seen each other almost every year since when we first met and I am happy to have seen him three times last year. I will miss him...
I went to Portland to say a last good bye and I just came back on Monday evening. Though it was a sad journey, the ceremonies have been uplifting, the time spend with his family and friends comforting.
We will meet again when my time will come... I feel blessed to have known so great a man and to have counted him as a dear friend. It will continue to help me throughout my life. And my thoughts and prayers are first and foremost for his wife, children and grandchildren.
On Twitter, a friend of mine wished me my needlework pleasure to keep me in comfort... yes, it will, as when I work with my needle, it is a time of prayers and thoughts wandering...
Let's go back to quilting stuff, as it is why you read my blog, I guess!!!
I have to share with you the two new books I received a few weeks ago!! I love them!!! The first one is from Jo Ann Mullaly. After Wool Crazy, which was a great success, she is back with fifteen wool projects in Crazy At Home! A great book with great projects!
The second book is from Kim Dielh! It's the fifth book in her "Simple" series. Like the other books, it is filled with country quilts, charm and this time she has used wool in several projects. Moreover there are additional projects that go with the main quilts and I think it is just a very good idea. So if you want my opinion, just order your copy as it is a must- have and you will want to make all the projects in the book! I want to!!!! I just need time ;-)
There is just one problem!!! Wool is not widely available in France and it is very expensive! So I guess I should open an online European store for hand-dyed wools as a second job!!! That would be fun!!!!
But no! I am definitely too busy already!!!
Until later my dear friends,
