Team Framily has not been having a particularly easy time this year. We have a lot to be grateful for. We have a lot to worry about. What else is new?! In between all of that I would like to sew and I would like to make quilts-- big, lovely, lots-of-white quilts. I have piles and plans. I have a lot of nerve, too, considering I don't have a whole lot of time or energy at the end of these days.
Today was the day to start small, and what better way, then with the word HOPE. Holla'! It's a free download (a tote pattern actually, but this is going to be a pillow, I think) from the DS site and is a part of the larger Proverbial Quilt pattern. I freaking love that quilt. There were phone calls and frantic emails exchanged in my circle upon the discovery of that quilt. In fact, the entire Hope Valley line is right up my alley even though I am just now getting around to buying some.
Amy lent me the Material Obsession book as a part of our long term live-at-my-house arrangement we have (don't worry Grammie Karol, if you want it back at your house just say the word). I wrote about it a little over at Bolt, but I it's so good I don't mind mentioning it twice. I just found out there is a TWO out there-- here on Amazon, but I think mine is coming from Powell's. Does anybody have it? Is it as good as I want it to be? I hope so.
There's that word again.
