found a little side project to work on.  Don’t know what this will end up as…It was inpired by this-

020.jpg a wool utility quilt found in the book below. I checked this book out from the library so often and have late fees to prove it…just so that I could look at this quilt. I REALLY like it. I was reading another quilting blog that mentioned a tutorial on ibbybee’s quilt blog and realized I might be able to try my hand at this…I need more practice but it is a start…I don’t know if I have enough patience to make an entire quilt this way…but I REALLY like that one! I finally got the book used on Amazon for like $3.99 plus shipping….oy vey the late fees I have paid on this book…...

    Jude,
    Thank you! Growing up in California, I had a hard time finding thrifted wool. Now that I am in the midwest, there is an abundant supply. I too want to see what I can do…one of these days I want to braid a wool rug…and this quilt idea is intrigueing me………

    Hi Acey, your welcome! Your blog is a very thoughtful one, with much eyecandy for the artists who visit you. You help me get my fix!

    Hi Tracy..Thank you…you are a good friend, and a much better blogger than me! I need to go to thespiritual B and B of yours and see if I can get a little more centered!

    Hi Clara,
    you struck a cord…I hope I’m not feeling imprisoned!! I do have to say winter is not my favorite season, still have a love/hate relationship with the snow…like to look at it, and that is about it! Hope you are well! and thank you for visiting.

    I will be visiting ya’ll soon!
