Although most of us are still in the thoes of summer, the advertising world has decided it is “Back to School” time. As a retired elementary school librarian with no school-age children, I am no longer thrown into panic mode by those 3 little words. Now it simply means stores will be slashing the prices on the Fall decorations and replacing them with Christmas decorations. It is a great time, though, to stock up on plastic containers, cool notebooks and the latest in pens, pencils and markers!!!!
In the quilting world, now is the time for our favorite magazines to present their Fall issues. Today I thought I would share issue #2 of the newest magazine to hit the quilt market: Primitive Quilts and Projects. Congratulations to Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles Quilters for being this issue’s cover quilt. Isn’t it beautiful!!!
Country Spools is our quilt in this issue and we have kits available. We also still have kits for Country Pinwheels (premier issue project).
And to add more confusion to this whole season thing – 2 weeks ago we sent off our project for the Winter issue!!!! Homespun Media, the publishers of Primitive Quilts and Projects was doing the photo shoot for the issue in July!!! I can’t wait to see that issue. Do you think they imported snow for that? Who had the pleasure of decorating their home for Christmas in the middle of July!!!!!! Hmmmm, so many questions.
I’ve spent a good part of the day at the computer (blogging, business email, Google Reader, etc) and now it is time to head to my sewing machine. Half square triangles (using Spinning Stars, of course) for a new Belle Meade is on today’s agenda. Tomorrow Caitlin and I will finish assembling patterns for the Cotton Club Block of the Month while we enjoy the remainder of season 1 of The Glades.
A quick librarian moment: I just finished The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I highly recommend this 1st book in the trilogy and suggest no one get in my way as I race to the library to get books 2 and 3. Watch for the movie debut in May 2012.
So until next time, happy quilting,
