A dear friend of mine sent me a fabulous package (talk about “antiparcelation”, Lauri!) Inside were some fabulous pieces of her work (she is nimble with the ink and iron). How long, Lauri, does it take you to setup and print a single-color page? Honestly, I really am surrounded by some seriously talented friends!
She also included some fabulous quilt books. But one made me cry…. The new Gail Pan book. She is my FAVORITE embroidery designer (check out her free Christmas patten here), but she’s from Australia (where the cost of the books and shipping is very prohibitive). I’ve wanted this book since I first read about it on her blog… and now I have it!
I need to stitch! I need to go home and pull out my Christmas embroidery and hang it up! Why is it not the weekend so I can pour myself into my quilt room and start pulling fabric?!? I’m going to vibrate with anticipation for the rest of this very long work day!
I am blessed.
