Just completed my last fused block of my Simply Delicious series - next I will sash the 9 blocks together and layer them to quilt and applique in one step.Have been enjoying my latest novel: She is a NZ author and the book contains similar supernatural/ ghostly elements to those which I enjoyed in Audrey Niffenegger's "Her Fearful Symmetry". Both good reads.
Also inspired by many of the quilts in this Kaffe Fassett book.
These log cabins for a start - I've never been partial to log cabin quilts, but the colours of these are great. This is Spring.And this is Autumn. Also this is a Kim McLean design from that book - blogged about here.
And there are many other beauties in there. Might have to own this one.
Have also seen a couple of great DVDs this week - both 'family' enjoyment. The first, an oldie but a goodie : And the second a recent release that is so good we have decided to have it in our own collection.
This is getting to be a very long post, but I also have some great blog love to share this week.
Have I mentioned that the Papaya blog have a cool selection of free printable envelopes - I reckon they would be lovely printed and used for art journalling.
This link is for a very cool tutorial that I will definitely try - making your own faux japanese masking tape.
Gorgeous painted pumpkins from Alisa Burke - not at all halloweeny!
Natural dying and gorgeous hearts this week at Love Stitching Red
And Ali Edwards is sharing her preparations for her 2010 Xmas Album - you need to start preparing now if you want to do it.
It's a long weekend for us in NZ - hope it's a good one.
