I am hooked...
On Monday there was a large package for me on top of our mailbox... And NO it wasn't fabric LOL (remember I wasn't buying fabric in February). I have seen a lot of you read the "Elm Creek quilt novels", and I've seen the author on Quilters News Network, so I hit Amazon and ordered a couple of her books. I didn't know where to start, so I got this sampler book with the three first books, and another one in paperback. I've been reading all week, and I have to say I'm hooked.... Sylvia Compson is a very interesting lady indeed, and I now have a sudden urge to start hand piecing (which I've claimed I was allergic to in the past...)
SOO I have no new work in progress to show you today, but I wanted to share our "key holder" that hangs in our hallway. We keep all our keys here, easy to find for all five of us. A few other items seem to be kept here as well, like our step counters and other odds and ends that just have nowhere else to go.
I made this a few years ago, and the kids weren't too happy about me using their favorite jeans (even though they had outgrown them by a couple of years at least)
But now they get to see their beloved jeans every day, and that's a lot better than boxing them up in the attic.
This weekend I will be going to Sweden with my husband. He is doing the Vasaloppet skirace on Sunday, a 90 km long race, so I will be the moral support and designated driver I guess. He's done it a few times before, but it's been 9 or 10 years since his last time. I'll let you know how he feels on Monday...
