new books

I recently purchased a couple of books - Carrie Nelson of  Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. Schnibbles x 2 and Camille Roskelley's Simplify.  They are both gorgeous.  Carrie quilts use charm packs and layer cakes while Camille's quilts are made up of a mixture of honey buns, charm packs etc.

The first one I'm making is square one from Simplify from L'amour by Sandy Gervais.  I love this fabric and have a honey bun so finally tracked down a charm square (the range has been out for a while now) and just need to purchase some yardage to finish the quilt.

I love the idea of using the one collection to make these quilts but I guess it doesn't help my stash get any smaller though !

welcome autumn

It's always so gorgeous this time of year with the mist and fog

even Pippi looked like she was checking out the mist...but I think she was just keeping an eye on her sister who was around the corner !
