I'm a flipper. Bet you didn't know that about me! You know I have a passion for quilts, quilting, and fabrics, but you probably didn't know I also have a passion for quilting magazines! When I'm not working with fabric, I'm looking at it, either in blogland or by flipping through the glossies. Have a peek at my latest purchases...can't seem to go to a supermarket without buying a new one. And as we approach Christmas, there are even more to choose from. I guess I am a professed magazineaholic! Do you think there's a support group out there for someone like me? Just imagine if I made a quilt from each magazine! Am I flippin' crazy?
And the best thing about flipping, is that every once in awhile, you come across a quilt made by someone you've met in blogland! For example, McCall's Quilting Magazine (November/December 201) has a great quilt in it designed by Konda Luckau, the wonderful host of the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along which I joined. Every second Tuesday is like Christmas when a new block design is posted! Konda's Snow-Kissed Star quilt in the magazine is amazing and graces the cover of the magazine. Kudos to Konda!
It's been a busy week and most of my evenings were tied up. But I did manage to finish block 4 of the Christmas Sew Happy Sew Along hosted by Lesley Boost. Isn't he a cutie! Only 3 more blocks to go and a week to finish up, so definitely ready by Christmas.
I'm off on vacation for the next few days! A wonderful time planned with "Mom, Me, and Sisters Three! " We're a 4-girl family, spread across the country, so when we get together, it's wonderful! Hubby will man the fort and keep the home fires burning, while I will wander across into another province and enjoy food, family, and fond times! Life is good!
Cheers and Hugs 'till next time!
