Can you believe I'm in the van and using my laptop? I feel like I'm on the Spaceship Enterprise with Captain Kirk. We have wireless internet through Verizon and it's mobile....but there has to be service near to use it. While at the cabin in Wyalusing there was little chance of any internet service much less phone service so I've really been out of touch.
I had planned a visit to MJ's house (my "Master" needle turn applique and hand quilting girlfriend) for some fun and some time to improve my needle turn applique skills. Naturally I had to bring several books for inspiration and thought this would be a great time to tell you about Inspired By Tradition by Kay Mackenzie.
Kay offers a "Gallery of Ideas"...this is where I found this wall hanging. Smaller projects really appeal to me...I stand a much better chance of finishing and not adding to my UFO pile.
After all the beautiful designs, Kay gives readers some hand applique tips, information on hand stitching, raw edge machine applique and even has a question and answer section.
I think Inspired By Tradition is an excellent book. Guess I'm not alone either. Back in March, SewCalGal reviewed Inspired By Tradition and there are links in her post to other bloggers reviews of this book....click here to check them out for more great information and ideas.
