We're still here. We have never taken this long of a blog break before. It won't happen again. Things are just a bit busy here. There were family get-togethers and summer celebrations and even some work.
Thursday Bill, myself, and Rachel and Michael went to a Tiger's game. Rachel and Michael are my my great niece and nephew and Polly's grandkids.Don't ask about the game. I think we went to the only loss they had this week. What else..... A package arrived with some goodies from the Moda warehouse. If I were you, I would expect a giveaway very soon.
I have been writing - a lot. That will be for some future posts. I also started a little project for a gift. It's an Hawaiian style quilt. I have made several before and I love to make them as it is all hand applique and hand quilting - the perfect travel project. You do need a window of several days for the prep work. When my current writing project is done in the next 2 days, I hope to baste this thing. All I need is a very large flat surface, a bottle of Roxanne's applique glue, and maybe a good movie playing in the background.More on the Hawaiian quilt later.......
The good news is that our next book is getting very close to it's publication date. So close, that we have been given the go-ahead to let you have a few peeks. The book is called Victory Girls: Patriotic Quilts and Rugs of WWII. It will be published by Kansas City Star books. Here is one of Polly's wonderful rugs....
Polly's rug is her interpretation of the border of my quilt - which you can see a bit here.Thanks for stopping by. There will be more posts of Hawaiian quilt basting, more peeks at Victory Girls, and even some give-aways.
