Janet Clare - her new book which has some lovely projects in it.
It was even better when she posted the book so quickly that it arrived the next day - I felt very lucky!
I can reveal to you that the style is 'classic' Janet Clare. Muted tones and colours that make you relax just reading through it. If you aren't already familiar with her work then I suggest you pop over to her blog or get hold of one of her other books. I particularly like the fact that although there are quilts to be made, there are other 'little projects' - sewn and non-sewn - which can all too easily cause one to drop what one is already doing in order to start (and perhaps finish!) another little item!
Can you tell that I'm excited?
Its not too late to donate if you'd like to help celebrate their achievements. My girls ran partly in memory of a friends mum and partly in support of their grandpa. They are part of the team on this JustGiving page.
And the third 'yay'? This one has been a little longer in the coming - I've been studying part time for nearly three years in order to complete my City and Guilds Level 3 Certificate in Patchwork and Quilting (through the School of Stitched Textiles - distance learning, working to my own timetable). Today I heard that I have passed it!
There will celebrating in the streets of Twickenham tonight (well, ok, maybe a glass of sparkling Elderflower cordial later, if I can persuade someone to go to the supermarket for me!).
Hope that you are having a good week too and finding reasons to celebrate.
