Do you like gossip? I like the good kind. The kind where someone does something good, or someone succeeds at something. I've got some of that to share today.

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:

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?

  1. I like the way you gossip! Your friend is a very talented quilter. Her quilt is very unique and very stunning and I hope it raises a lot of money for the Fibre Festival.
