Yep, the book that I have been drooling over for the last 3 months is finally mine! I am so enamored with all the pictures and projects, I've looked through the whole things several times. It is even more amazing than I imagined! I've already got my first project picked out, but it is a present, so you won't see any pictures until the recipient has it in her hands! The best kind of presents are the ones that enable you to give presents. :-)
In other news (drum roll please!), I finished the quilt! I tend to be so scatter brained when working on a quilt, so I rarely crank them out, but I think this is definitely up there in being the second or third longest-amount-of-time I've spent on one. The longest lasted a couple of years. **Cringe.** It really wasn't entirely my fault though. It is a quilt I inherited from my Grandmother who inherited it from a friend. Yes, three different people worked on this poor little quilt! By the time it got to me there were a few mistakes so I had to do some ripping out, but I was so happy not to be cutting out the pieces that I didn't mind much at all. I was also in college at the time so I could only work on it during winter or summer breaks. The double-wedding ring quilt is now daily used while snuggling on the couch. The second longest was a quilt I worked on in highschool. It was a block-a-month quilt, so again, not really my fault for the length of time. This one has been in process (off-and-on) since June and is now finally finished. I'll be sure to post pictures as soon as I can!
