A New Book for Me.

Hello, here I am again, I have been busy going up and down the motorway to see my lovely grandson Jude but, I have still found time to do a little crazy patchwork, this is my February block, it is not finished yet I have to think a bit more about it but I am pleased with it so far. I bought myself a new book by Marsha Michler, it is a brilliant book and if you are a beginner like me at crazy patchwork then this is the book for you, she explains everything so beautifully I had a lovely afternoon reading it from cover to cover, I think I am hooked on this crazy patchwork lark I love collecting all the bits and pieces that go to make up the embroideries, I can spend an afternoon just going through all my boxes of treasures. The weather here is just awful so today I will sit in my sewing room and play.

What a gorgeous little boy he is! You must be so thrilled.
Is that hand sewing that you are showingwith the beading? It is so lovely.

Jilly, it's coming along beautifully. I think you are hooked! ;-)

Isn't it funny how we get wrapped up in a new craft. My current one is a renewal of crochet, which I used to do years ago. Now, hoping my carpal tunnel behaves with my new wrist support because I would have trouble giving it up! I've purchased new crochet books like you're purchasing new CQ ones!

We needle workers are a crazy bunch, aren't we! lol

Hugs, Diane
