Dropping in to say Hi!

1 
Summer is in full swing here and I am having such a wonderful time with my family.  I had a little setback last week with being sick, - but I am finally getting to a project that I am really excited about.  Unfortunately this project is one that I can not share at the moment, but (hopefully) you'll be happy to know that I am working on the first quilt for my second book proposal.  Fingers crossed the editor likes my new idea for a book.

I am also having fun trying out some Wool/Cotton Batting by Hobbs.  Wow, I love it so far!  Seriously, I think it is my new favorite batting. Also, it is working great with the Kimono Silk thread.  Anyway, I hope you all are having a great time with your families this summer, and hopefully making some time for sewing. 

Speaking of thread, have you seen all the new Aurifil thread we just added? It's all on sale!!

Talk soon!

I totally LOVE the idea of you writing second book!! :)

Wool is my go to batting and a cotton/wool combo is very intriguing...

Woah! Kimono Silk thread? On longarm?? or domestic?

I have a Gammill Charm (the 18" longarm on a sit down table), and have a difficult time finding the right tension for most threads. Aurifil, for one. Not sure I've even tried the Kimono Silk.

Your quilting is truly beautiful.
