Recently, I received this dreamy book from Jennifer. She lives close to Nundle (which I have heard so much about from Aussie girls)and she bought this book for me from Kerry Swain's quilt shop. A year ago this month, Jennifer and her DH visited their son in Toronto and we met up and the rest is history. We had a few lovely outings around Toronto. Thank you, my friend, for this lovely book.
Snow has already showed up in places just north of the city. Autumn is definitely here and winter is soon to follow. The temps. are getting colder (mind you we are to have a few nice days this week). So, the question remains: 'will we have a white Christmas?'
On Friday, I visited the Creative Festival here in Toronto. Besides picking up backing fabrics and some FQ's and a scallop ruler and books, this new ruler was on my list to buy.
So, to check out this ruler to see if it lives up to the hype, I had to start cutting fabrics and started on this new pattern. These fabrics were already laying out in my studio and since pumpkins are my favourite autumn items .... well I just had to start this pattern that I also bought at the Festival. More to follow on the ruler and this pattern.
