New Book


Barb brought over her projects yesterday....and my mouth just dropped open. Many times we don't see what the other is working on until photography day. It's almost like we are working in the dark....just hope when the light of day hits, everything will go together. I had no idea how her projects were turning out....and needless to say they turned out great. I know you will love her things as much as I do!

The inspiration for our book is an antique sampler by Louisa Bell. Barb found it on e-bay. Let me tell you, this one sampler inspired quite a bit....lots of fun projects. Oh just you wait! Not much longer now.

Our book is in the final stages....above is a picture of the book cover.....a bit more writing and a couple more photographs and it will be done!!!

At market we will have Honeysuckle Manor, 5 patterns and a wooden pincushion base that's painted and made to look a bit vintage.

Until later! I have to get back to work.

  32. WHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEE - another exciting BBD book - can't wait !

    I missed your post about quilling - I just saw something about this on a rug hooking blog - I did not realize it was also done in rug hooking with wool - such as in a sheeps body for effect using a plaid or checked wool - very cool.
