I love when UPS arrives at my house. They leave their packages tucked in the corner of my front porch, away from the elements. The packages stay there, waiting for me to arrive home. It's such a delight to be able to just pick it up and take it inside. No looking for my mailbox keys, no walking across the street in the cold and dark to check my mail. Probably just bills in there anyways!
I told myself "no more books" and then these arrived. I'll never live long enough to make all the beautiful projects designers and authors publish for us, but I so enjoy flipping through the pages just before nodding off for the night.
Kim Diehl's books and will certainly purchase her new one next year. I love applique and although I don't use her method, I love her designs and color choices.
Stitch a bit if you can.
