But first, see what came in the mail for me yesterday?
I may be a rotten photographer but I'm lucky to have good friends. My friend Karen Neary sent me this little pin ....See it? On my knitting project bag? The pin is a reproduction of the cover of her NEW BOOK!! It's about to be published. So very close to being published that I think it's OK to share the news here. A book of New York Beauty quilts!!
But that's not all.......... Karen's designed a New York Beauty block that you can find in the current Quilter's Connection magazine. It's on the cover, too. Go have a look. It's fabulous.
The quilt is on display at Mrs. Pugsley's right now. It's being raffled off in support of the Nova Scotia Fibre Festival. Beth (of Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium) wrote an excellent piece about the quilt and Karen. You'll find that here: http://mrspsamherst.blogspot.ca/2014/09/it-here.html
It makes Grandma Coco happy when good things happen to good people. That's the way the world OUGHT to work, don't you think?
