I See The Finish Line

I see the end this crazy phase of my summer. Yippee! I am almost finished my book. Although I've loved designing these projects, I am glad that it's over. My coughing fits are practically gone and there's been some stresses in everyday living. I am ready to relax a bit. I was thinking about having a "The Kids Are Back To School Party" right after school starts.  

I hope that your summers are going well. Have you been to any new quilt shops during your summer travels?

We also have Miss August for the Aurifil Designer of the Month Event. Her name is Jinny Beyer! Exciting right? All of the designers have been great and Jinny has a lovely project for you.

Check out Pat's interview with Jinny and don't forget to enter the contest by posting a project on the Flickr site! Good luck!

Where Did July Go?

I was out buying school supplies the other day. School supplies! Can you believe it? How's your summer? Mine's a blur! I can't believe that it's August already. I am working on my book and it is killing me. Don't get me wrong, I love it. It's just that I've had a lot of trouble focusing. I am still coughing albeit less so now. The allergy season this year is killing me. I did manage to go into NYC to visit Henry Glass and I stopped by Kinokuniya. I love their books.

From stitcheries to felted wool, I love it all. The layouts are what make the books, don't you think?

I had to pop by Pennington Quilt Works too. These pincushions/sachets caught my eye.

And so did these pillows!
