yarn update and some sneak peeks


It's me again...briefly coming up for air. It's Market time so I'm currently drowning in fabric. I'm not having a booth this time, yet somehow I'm just as busy as usual. Go figure.

Anyway, I wanted to answer a couple of questions that came up last time...regarding the crocheted pillow, here's the book I used.


I'm not sure if it's available in the US; Pam ordered it directly from Rooster Yarns in England.

As for my little knit shrug, here's the link for the free pattern. It was super easy and quick.

I've again had the pleasure of playing with Lecien's upcoming fabrics...here are bits of a couple of the projects. I love the bright Spring colors!




As for that fabric in the top photo? That is currently my favorite piece of fabric in the entire world and I'd cover my entire home with it if I could. Walls, furniture, windows, beds...this particular piece will be on the back of a quilt...it's from the upcoming Flower Sugar line. Isn't it wonderful?

I can't wait to see what you've designed.

Just to let you know, I am making Butterfly Love and I am teaching it as a workshop for my Guild in June. So, if a quilt shop calls you and orders 25 or more patterns, it's me!

Thanks for the link to the shrug pattern, Elizabeth....already printed it out and plan on getting one made soon! It is a nice diversion from the madness of getting ready for market (with a booth) and writing the book!
