Crazy Mom Quilts. She made a new and different pincushion for each day in July. Now she has written a pattern, and Volume 1 includes five of the pincushions (available on Craftsy). I tested "Pineapple."
one-hour baskets for my friends. So I really wasn't planning on buying any this year. But then I saw this: Fresno! Now I need a plan.
Since I have come back from my fabulous quilting retreat in Minnesota, my sewing room has pretty much looked like this.
Both rooms went from green (think Granny Smith apples...) to my favorite warm gray, which we have used in nearly 85 percent of the rest of the house--Valspar Oatlands Subtle Taupe. I found the paint color when I saw it on one of my favorite decorating blogs, Freckles Chick, but I was really thrown by the word "taupe" when I went to Lowe's to get the first gallon mixed. But when it dries, the color is, in my opinion, sheer perfection.
Nicole posted it on her blog.
And it looks so pretty when the light is on.
Stay cool, my friends.
