I've been working on another doily quilt over the hols using a jelly roll from Cottage Quiltworks.
The fabrics are 30-ish and the doilies are beautiful. Better than having them sitting in the cupboard don't you think?
Now that we've mastered making pizzas in the Weber I've been making lots of dough for that and quick and easy olive and rosemary bread - YUM to both. I may have left the dough too long to rise or was the bowl not big enough!
I have never seen a metre of shortbread have you? We are slowly getting thru it - thanks kids.
This mag is out at the moment and features three of my quilts from past issues of AP and Q.
I ordered this book from Barbara Brackman's site and it's a real hoot. It's a book of saints for quilters. She's so clever with her photoshopping and has a wicked sense of humour. You can see it here http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1836309
Over at Alex Anderson's Quilt Show you can see for free a video of a Baltimore Album exhibition from Houston last year. The quilts are simply stunning and there's even one from Kim Maclean using Kaffe fabrics.
I have been talking with Linda from Stitchin Mission lately and here's part of what she had to say:
"Stitchin' Mission #24 just began this past week at my own Lutheran church in West Des Moines, Iowa. I have 35 newbies enrolled, and 13 helpers, so it's a good-sized group. This time our quilts are going to an orphanage in South Africa, about two hours north of Johannesburg. I anticipate we'll make about 55 quilts in this class. That number will make SMs top 1,000 in donated quilts. When I started teaching quiltmaking six years ago this month, I had no idea this would continue for so long, and be of such interest. Guess everyone loves the opportunity to learn quiltmaking for free! But it is truly a God-blessed activity that touches the lives of the quiltmakers and the quilt recipients. I'll be making a DVD of the lessons at the end of March, and then who knows where it will go from there!? Thanks for your interest!"

Di from Snippets and Scraps is her Australian counterpart and was one of my Cherry on Top bloggers from the last post. Mayne if Linda comes to visit again we can catch up.
