Fast forward to 1:07 for the chorus--that way it will stick in your head all day. :)
Remember this quilt? Colorbox.
It's really hard to see her amazing quilting. I'm pretty sure when the box arrives, I'll do the same thing I've done the other four times a quilt has returned after spending quality time with Ione: I open the box. Stare in stunned silence. Shed a few tears at the absolute beauty of her artistry. And then feel like taking it and showing it off to anyone I can grab. Friends. Family. Strangers on the street.
A Leap Day Superior Threads giveaway is happening on February 29! My friend, Elizabeth, and I got the ball rolling on this, because this day only happens once
The nice people at Penguin Books/Dutton contacted me to see if I would be interested in reading and reviewing a new book by Jennifer Chiaverini, Sonoma Rose. Having read several of Jennifer's books before, I was particularly interested in a book that takes place in Sonoma, California, during the Prohibition era. When I'm done, I'll be happy to pass it on to someone else.
Look at the blocks printed on the inside front and back of the cover. I might want to try making "Sonoma Rose," and also "Road to Triumph Ranch."
While we're talking about books, my awesome friend, Riel Nason, author of The Town That Drowned, one of my favorite books of 2011, has agreed to give away an autographed copy of her book as well. That happens on March 1.
So, go ahead. Start singing along with Carly Simon and do some anticipating of your own.
