So interesting!

Happy Memorial Day week-end :)

I have so enjoyed viewing Quilt Market re-caps on so many different blogs....I have been to market once and it was such a great experience....hope to go again!

In my re-caps I found something so informative and so exciting to see....I hope you will enjoy also....

A new fabric company is out there Cotton + Steel....they have their first line coming out in 4 days...They posted a video of the fabric printing process....take a look....

A little bit of wool...

It's been a while since I have done anything with wool and it sure was fun!

I am redoing my guest room.  I removed a queen size bed and replaced it with two metal beds.  They were the initial change and you know the story from there.  One thing leads to another and so on....

Between the beds I have a very old bench that I got from the Country Loft, the shop has some great finds :) trust me.....and this will fit perfectly on the bench!

So.....
All set to stitch into place....

This is a pattern from Maggie Bonanomi's book "Another Place and Time"...it is done with soft neutrals....

A fun side project from all the piecing I have been doing...

Hope you have a sunny day...and "give or get" a hug :)

Remember SMILE always.....
