Meanwhile, I am getting ready for my trip to Houston, to help my daughter there when she gives birth. This mostly involves making plane reservations, writing a detailed list of quilting supplies I will need to pick up at Quilter's Emporium, my favorite Houston quilt shop, and ordering quilting-related items to be delivered to my DD's house in advance of my arrival. As I am trying to minimize my spending, so far I have only ordered two items. And they are:
One cute little honey bun of Sandy Gervais's Objects of Desire. This was the Quilter's Daily Deal one day last week at Missouri Star Quilts. Every day at midnight, they post a different wild deal. This one was for a Honey Bun for a ridiculously low price, but they didn't say which Honey Bun you would get. So I took my chances, and this was the one they sent! How fun!
And yes, the second thing I ordered was a book...
Yes, I know I had said that after buying Gwen Marston's new Liberated Quiltmaking and also the new Freddy and Gwen book that I would never, ever, ever need to buy another quilt book. But the quilts in this one are so wonderful, so inspirational, and so timeless. I just had to have this book. This is the last one. Really.
