I've been working so hard to finish some ufo's this year and done pretty good at keeping up with my monthly goals. I've finished several things!!! And now I may have lost it. It all started when my friend Mary called to tell me about some new patterns she had. She works at a local gift shop and they had ordered some patterns, whoo hoo! The closest fabric or quilt shop is 2 hours away so learning that they were branching out into patterns was a thrill. And of course I need to support a local shop. The patterns were from http://www.crabapplehillstudio.com/
Well, I had almost forgotten that I had signed up for a wool block of the month from my favorite quilt shop. It started this month! With work I wasn't able to go to the first class so they are mailing me the kit. It's the Folk Art Album quilt from http://www.primitivegatherings.us/shop/ I love this quilt!! The kit should be here tomorrow and I can't wait to start it. Isn't it beautiful?!
While I was showing Primitive Gathering's website to a friend I saw their new book "Primitive Christmas" and had to order it; I received it yesterday. It has some wonderful projects. I also saw several other quilt patterns that I would like to get while I was surfing around but so far I've been able to resist, but I do feel myself weakening.
I did finish 2 Sail Rigger bags for Jaime this week, she picked out some great fabrics. And I'm on the September snowman, only 3 left. Thanks to everyone's comments I've decided to quilt it with crosshatching. I'll be going to Lexington next week so I will be able to get fabric to set them up with. And I'll try to keep blinders on when I visit the quilt shops!
