Martingales blog http://shopmartingale.com/images/marketing/email_templates/logos.gif today features a wonderful new book called FEED SACKS. It’s a smaller softcover book with soooooo many pictures included that I’m tempted to keep it but I have decided that I will give it away after I’ve enjoyed reading it. That’s fair, isn’t it? And in the interest of space on my bookshelves, I think it’s the right thing to do – haha!
I am not a fervent lover of feedsacks – in fact, I had a HUGE box of them that I sold during one of our big events years ago. There are so many other fabrics that I love instead of making myself sew with feedsacks and/or 30’s fabrics.
More Dirty Dozen finishes :
Without looking at past posts, I forgot where I left off – if I have posted these twice, I’m sorry. If I missed posting YOUR finish, please let me know. My mind has been occupied elsewhere as you probably know but I’m feeling better.
I am looking forward to Black Friday and Bonnie’s new mystery called Frolic. I have stopped myself from starting anything that will compete for my time because I know how many units she calls for each week – lots and lots of piecing! I want my island clear of all stuff by Friday morning when I can start cutting and sewing.
Did you see Martingale’s short video of the quilts in A Country’s Call? I put it on my Facebook page and Connie put it on our Country Threads page – for some reason I can’t get it on here for you. It was fun to see the corners of every quilt!
Tomorrow I’m going to show you those pincushions I received in the mail – I wanted this post to be special so Thanksgiving Day fills that bill. I am thankful I was the lucky recipient.
North Iowa and Southern Minnesota are pretty much closed down or slowed down today because of the rain, ice, sleet and snow combined with HIGH winds last night. Rick is in his glory moving snow with the tractor and loader. Me, you ask? I’m stuck inside but I have a good novel, a Netflix series and a Prime Video series to keep me busy as well as a couple small Christmas gifts to make. If they turn out OK, I’ll post the directions.
Are you preparing food today, cleaning house for company or sewing because you’re going to someone else’s house for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow?
