Hello stitching friends!
We just got back from Market and Festival, and it was a wonderful time! Here are my sisters Judy, Gretchen, and myself! We were in our local small town airport delayed....but still having fun! My Husband brought us, and then our parents came and hung out with us while we waited for our flight! I can't find a photo of that, but it was wonderful seeing them watch out the window waving to us as we took off. I know it really worries Dad to have us flying together all the time. They are the best!
Here is our booth at Market this time...
It was so nice to have all that space, and such a great location!
Okay.....onto the title of the blog! There is a beautiful new book out by Sue Spargo's, with Martingale publishing! It's called "Stitches to Savor" and it really is something to savor!
If you have ever seen Sue's beautiful quilts, you know what I'm talking about! Gretchen and I had the privilege to host Sue at a couple workshops for our quilt shop, The Woolen Willow, several years ago. The workshops were wonderful, and Sue is an excellent teacher. Just to touch and see her quilts in person is a wonderful experience, and her new book captures the feeling perfectly! "Stitches to Savor" is a true coffee table book, and would make a fantastic gift also!
Here are a few photos from the book....
I hope you are all finding plenty of time for stitching, and that you get a chance to get this lovely book of photos! That's right....photos! You don't have to feel guilty if you don't make the quilts! You can just savor every stitch on every page! This can be purchased through www.shopmartingale.com, and at your local quilt shop!

We've been having beautiful fall weather here in WV. All the leaves are changing and falling, the sun has been shining, and temperatures in the 50s and 60s. This is my favorite time of year. Trick or Treat was on Saturday, so I spent the afternoon with my dad, brother, my 4 year old nephew, Julian. Here is a cute video of Julian playing around on my phone:
Sunday I was inspired and motivated and decided to deep clean my house with my windows open, good music playing and candles burning. I even gave my my dog, June, a bath!
I find that when my house is clean and organized, I am more likely to be creative and productive. My next task will be candle making! I love to make soy candles, especially this time of year. They make great gifts, and also make my house smell so good!
Kristen and I haven't had much time to work on our quilts since my last post. We plan on getting together this week to start back up, so hopefully I'll have more progress to show in my next blog post!
