How's It Going...???

We are definitely into the second month of the year.  There will be at least 6 more weeks of quilting according to the Hedgehog!  And...alleluia...the landscape is covered in snow today!  Which makes everyone around here mighty happy.  I have been connecting to my 2014 word, "Quiet." And, the chanting of my mantra, "it is so not like me" has keep my tantrums tucked away in the recesses of my 2 year old brain.  How about you?  How we doing so far?

HH and I put together a couple of bookcases last weekend and the instructions were definitely written to keep the drama on the down low.  Having good instructions or a good instructor is a must for me! 

My needle case class with Tamra at the Stitchin' Post was very good.  I learned 4 new stitches!  Tamra is a great instructor...she draws pictures too! LOL  It also was the first time in my entire life I have been called "Teachers Pet"  by a fellow student!  hehehe...Sister Theodoshea must be rolling over in her grave!

look at this fun little stitch!!!

I couldn't resist the latest addition of Quiltmania!  Between Primitive Quilts and Projects and Quiltmania I am in quilt literature heaven.  Do you have a favorite magazine?

With all the negatives I have received on the new Pellon steam a seam I am reluctant to use it in prepping my second border.  I am going to wait and try it on a pincushion or something else that is small!  

Have a great hump day!
