I may be AWOL for a while….

My dear postman was accosted as he dropped off this parcel from Amazon this week and I am not sure he will ever be the same again! In fact I think he is actively requesting routes where vicious dogs live in preference to having to face me and another delivery of Quilt Porn.

I’ve been eagerly anticipating these books since I first read about them on other blogs. Rachel over at Stitched in Color is working her way through the projects (known as “scores”) in the Improv Handbook and I am seriously considering doing the same in the new year. I have high hopes that Old Quilts New Life will give me ideas for how to make a very busy old style scrappy quilt with my huge stash of Liberty fabrics. And the HST book should come as no surprise to everyone who knows me and my geometry/maths geek profile.

So if I am absent, don’t answer emails, leave the phone to go to voicemail, and am generally Missing In Action, you will find me curled up with one of these books either on a sun lounger in the garden or in front of the fire, depending on what the Spring weather is throwing at us! I suspect my family will quickly get to know the number of the local food delivery service.
