I have been inspired to put down the yarn...
and pick up the needle!
I am reading The Aloha Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini.
I absolutely luuuuvvvv her Elm Creek Quilts series!
The setting for the book is Hawaii which has a wonderful quilting history.
After reading the acknowledgment section, it seems she did quite a bit of
research on the history and quilting technique
Years ago, when I was in my quilting phase...
I had bought lots of fabric and
cut out patterns for Hawaiian
blocks. I had only gotten one completed and a second one
basted before that phase was over!
This is the 1st one...
This is the current one...
So...I put away the yarn for awhile and will try my hand
at my quilting again!
Not having my air conditioner, it is pretty warm when
working on my afghan.
So... we will see how long it last!
Other than quilting & reading...
not much else planned for the weekend.
School starts next week so back to school shopping
I suppose! Nothing like taking teenage boy
shopping for clothes!
Almost as fun as taking a husband!!!
Have a great weekend!
