Miriam at Yellow Roses had a giveaway and I won. Not only did I win these great fabrics but I had to share the lovely pocketsize notebook. I use these all the time. Its like a little journal with all sorts of things I have to keep and remember when I’m away from the house or need to keep a thought in a sure-to-find place. This prettiness is so wonderful.
A word about these fabrics. They’re Liberty Marylebone collection from Liberty Art Fabric for Rowan. I’ve never felt these fabrics only really Kaffe. Well let me tell you these particular fabrics are VERY NICE. They have a lovely hand and just feel perfect to work with. They have some weight and body to them. Again, VERY NICE. I’m making a mental note here for the future so I know! I much prefer these to Kaffe. Well, so far. I mean, I don’t actually know. I have to learn.
If you haven’t visited Miriam’s blog, please do. Her work is enchanting. Peruse, leave a note or a smile.
In other news, during my rest times (a new daily practice), I read this
which I found to be the perfect for the downtime. Light and not to much brain power required. I tried to go for another light read after that but I couldn’t do it. I much prefer something with some meat on the bones, a tome even. So I chose this
and so far I’m really enjoying it. It’s one of those books that starts of with action and definitely qualifies as a tome although with an e-reader you kinda miss that part, which is fine by me because holding a heavy book… well I don’t miss that. I just miss SEEING the big fat book on my table.
This transition from a real paper book to an e-reader is a sort of thing with me but I’m going with it.
And today I’m an Elf working on presents. This one in particular I’m hand quilting. I could machine it but I’m more confident in my hand quilting. It’s just that it needs to get out early next week so… well I’ll do the best I can!
Keeping the needle moving, right?
Enjoying you! In friendship, *karendianne.
