With all the 'sick' going around it is nice to sit with a cup of hot tea and surf all the fun quilting sites. I found this one and thought I would share. Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works is having a give away of some fun things she found at Quilt Market. The deadline for her giveaway is November 2nd. So there is still time to go on over to Jackie's blog and enter in the fun. I am coveting the book on black & whites....

Made up a few leather and bead bracelets last night. I like them but they need to be worn so the leather softens up a bit. They are a little stiff right now.

Last winter was dragging on and seemed like it would never end. Each trip to the fabric store I was drawn to the warm yellows that reminded me of the sun and summer. I just had to do something with them. I found this pattern called Romantic Patches in the Leisure Arts book 'Quaint Quilts to Love'. It just makes me feel warm and comforted to look at it. It is my instant sunshine for the long winter months ahead.

I started a sweater about 10 years ago and never finished it. So this week I ripped out all the stitches and I am going to start again with a new pattern. I hope I finish this one, I like the yarn. I am using a pattern from a book called Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard. You can get the pattern free here. I haven't done any knitting (except for some felted slippers) for awhile so this should be interesting.
