Look What I Found...

A new book, called It's Quilting Cats & Dogs by Lynette Anderson. I paid full price for it when I found it in a shop in Wisconsin, but if you click on the title, the link will take you to the discounted Books-a-Million price. Don't feel bad for me, though. I'm so tickled to have found it that I'm not grumping about paying what I did.
Remember this fabric that I'm using in my Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt? I chose it mainly because I couldn't resist the animal images on it.
I just love the sweet dog, cat, bluebird, owl and butterfly images. They're just adorable, don't you think?

Then I found the book and look what was inside! The same animals that appear on my fabric, along with other project patterns and transfers for sewing and/or stitching!

You know I won't be able to resist stitching this piece. It even has a little Airstream on this block!

But mostly I think I might have to add those appliqued' animals on the purse onto a block to add to my Farmer's Wife quilt. They're just too cute to resist! I'll be working on my other blocks this week as I prepare for the new batch for March, but believe me, those little animal applique's are going to be calling to me the whole time!

Oh, before I close, I've started a Brynwood Needleworks group on Facebook. If you already hang out on FB, you're invited to join my new group.

Wishing you a week filled only with good things and time for something creative, too!

Thanks so much for the reminder, Sherry. My last week of "whirlwind travel" threw me off. I'm going to write it right now - and I'll pull this post to go up on Wednesday instead. Thank you for reminding me. whew!

Thanks to everyone for your prayers and understanding last week. I really appreciate it!

That book was put together and printed especially for you. Of course you couldn't resist it. I can see some lovely projects in your future.
