Wednesday Night & I'm Back in Town!

(A peek at this month's AOTM quilt that I am working on)

I forgot to mention that I was going away for a few days with work, so sorry about that. I got back tonight and found that I had three new books (my first ever Amazon order) waiting on my doorstep as well as some wonderful ATCs from a trade with Margaret Roche. While I was away I used my evenings mostly to just read my book "The Trout Opera" by Matthew Condon (which I am struggling with, but determined to finish even if I skip over some of the more turgid passages!) but I did get a bit of the hand stitching done on the little art quilt I am making for Mandy as my "Art of the Month" commitment for July.

These are my ATCs that Margaret chose -
Napkin Collage on Stamped & Painted Canvas

Painted Vliesofix on Fabric with Painted Felt Flowers

Beeswaxed Stamped Tissue Collage

And these are the ones I chose! And look at the attention to detail in Margaret's packaging - so special - a beautiful card, envelope and some yummy ATC sized papers.

And these are my new books - don't they look gorgeous!

Goodness you must spend a small fortune on books.
I need a lot of people like you when my book hits the shelves!! Getting nervous now.
I have run out of space to store any more but I like the look of these three books. Will look them up.
I need a bigger house or stop buying!!
Cheers
Shirley
