I'm a Fan....

I wish I could say that the quilts below are mine, but they are not. They are the creations of my friend Brenda at Acorn Quilt & Gift Company. The top one is called Betsy's Closet, and the one below is Benji's Pockets. I happen to know that Betsy has already sold out once and pre orders are being taken for Benji, so if you love them like I do, get yourself over to the Acorns website and place your order! All of Brenda's work is gorgeous- you are guaranteed to LOVE IT!!!! (I am a big fan, gush, gush.....)

And since I am gushing, I wanted to share this book with you that I got a couple of months ago- it is simply gorgeous. I love the projects and the photography- such a feast for the eyes. It is called With These Hands and it is by Maggie Bonanomi. I highly recommend this one, especially if you like primitives. Even if prims aren't your thing, you could certainly work up these lovely projects with pastels for spring.We will be going to Dave and Buster's tomorrow with our daughter and a couple of her friends to celebrate her 14th birthday (which was actually way back in February, but we are little behind around here....). We'll have lunch and then set the kids loose in the game arcade. I don't consider myself to be a violent person, don't even like violent movies, but.... I do enjoy shooting zombies at the arcade. There, I've said it. Please don't hold it against me. I'm really a very nice person....

Have a wonderful weekend...


  1. I love those quilts! Makes me think of the paper dolls I loved to play with as a child. The book looks good, too. I haven't seen that one. Hope your daughter had a great birthday celebration!

  2. Thanks for showing off 'the kids'! :o)
    As of yesterday - we have them both in stock (yea!) . . & I agree with you 100% about Maggie's book - it's lovely!
    . . . & I would just like to personally thank you for the job you'll be doing tonight. . . ridding the world of a few more zombies. . . a superwoman. . . that's what you are!
    xo, Bren
