Have I got your attention? Has the cutest puppy in the whole wide world made you smile? (adorable photo shamelessly purloined from www.cuteoverload.com) No, I don't know this little guy or anything about him - I have just been smiling at this photo for a couple of days and thought you would like it too.
Now that I have your undivided attention - Hey! Look what showed up Monday morning....These are a few pieces of "Clermont Farms," our new collection that I have been working with. My rotary cutter is smokin'. The featherweight is taking a rest and I am trimming blocks. It's my new favorite collection. Polly named this collection after a family farm owned by our cousin who bred race horses. For all of you attending quilt market, we will have 4 new quilts made with Clermont Farms - assuming the featherweight holds up. Look for a giveaway soon - a few choice pieces and the leftover scraps after the 4 tops go to the quilter. If all goes well, that will be next week.
As I have been cutting and piecing, I have kept the dvd player going with some favorite love stories. I watched these 2 today and soon I had a pile of finished blocks. First was North and South - another British costume drama. It is based on the book by Elizabeth Gaskell (who wrote Cranford) and was recommended to me by a friend. It's wonderful. Consider it recommended to you. Second was a odd, quirky movie that has become a favorite here - Stranger Than Fiction. It's hard to describe without making it sound too weird, but it's an original love story that might have the sweetest, most life affirming ending ever.
Well, it's back to work. Later
