Next, I am participating in a blog hop for Christa Watson's new book, Machine Piecing With Style. It is truly a lovely book filled with great instruction in quilting on your regular sewing machine and also lovely projects.
The hop starts today and here is the schedule so you can check out the stops:
My quilt for the hop - my pattern is Lightning - is almost ready for photographs and its big reveal on the 24th. I finished the quilting this past weekend. It was so wonderful to be actually quilting again, I have missed it so much.
Last, I signed up to go to Sew Pro, which is a conference next September. It is not a sewing retreat, it is all about taking your blogging, writing, pattern designing and fabric designing to the next step. The instructors are fantastic too. I don't suppose any of you want to come to Chicago next fall too?
I've a lot of day job work this week and then I have a quick work trip at the weekend. But I have lots more to share to catch you up, so watch for more here on that.
