To say that I am extremely busy these days is not true! It's even worse... which means I do not have much time for my needles. The only thing I have managed to do so far, is to handquilt for 30 minutes every schoolday and 2 hours at the weekend.
When I came back from work today, there was a surprise in my mailbox. Two books were waiting for me.
The first one is by Maggie Bonanomi and is entitled Buttonwood Farm. You know how much I love everything she creates!!!
The second one is by Renée Plains and is entitled Stitches From the Schoolhouse. I missed her previous book (A Bird in Hand) but didn't want to miss this one.
Both books have surpassed all my expectations... absolutely FANTASTIC books!!!
I love the blue color but have difficulty in using it in my country projects. I think that now, Maggie Bonanomi has managed to help me get over my fear of using it!!! Moreover, I now know how I will use the Japanese antique blues and indigos I bought last April ;-)
