Well, I have been waiting and waiting and waiting (not so) patiently and today my prize arrived. Hooray!!! Doing my happy dance :-). Look at the beautiful, bright fat quarters that Wendy so generously sent me, all wrapped up with this very pretty ribbon. Thank you soooo much Wendy, I can't wait to use them.
Friday Night Sew In (FNSI) is on again at Wendy's this Friday night. If you'd like to join in you can sign up at Wendy's blog. Who knows, maybe you could be the lucky winner of this month's prize!
Now, for all those readers out there, I thought I'd share what I'm currently reading. Some of you may already have discovered this series but I only came across it through an article in one of my magazines (Down Under Quilts, I think) earlier this year.
The series is 'Elm Creek Quilts' written by Jennifer Chiaverini. The first book I was able to get hold of, 'The Runaway Quilt' is actually number 4 or 5 in the series. I borrowed it from the library and took it to Marble Bar.
Jennifer is a wonderful author who has created a range of captivating characters. Her novels are a mix of historical based fiction and a contemporary quilting community. She shares the stories from the different perspectives of her characters which is a style I am really enjoying. I am currently reading 'The Quilter's Homecoming' and also have 'The New Year's Quilt' on my bedside table ready to go when I get a spare 5 minutes (ha ha, not very often).If you get a chance I would definitely recommend them.
Anyway, I must head off to bed as tomorrow will be a long, busy day. Hopefully I'll see you at FNSI on Friday.
Have a great week,
