A new obsession

I stumbled across the gorgeous work of Sylvia Pippen the other day, and I just can't stay away! If you haven't seen her work or if you admire Sashiko OR applique in general --- check it out!

Left - Her newest book is on my wishlist

Quilter's Poem

The house is dusty
The floors are a mess
Kids getting fussy
I couldn’t care less

The garden needs tending
And laundry too
Some clothes need mending
What’s a quilter to do?

What’s for dinner mom?
What can we eat?
I can’t answer that now
There’s a quilt to complete!

The needle is threaded
And fabric cut out
Go play with your sister
And try not to shout!

My coffee is poured
And the music’s on low
It’s ‘me’ time right now
There’s a quilt to grow

It looks like blog-land is hit hard by summertime -- and that it is not just me :)

Between visiting family, swimming, boating, swimming, BBQing, swimming, buying fabric, and swimming ---  it has been pretty busy! I'm looking forward to hiding in my air-conditioned basement a.k.a sewing room and getting some quilting done this week.
