Loose Threads: Some Knitting - Some Quilting

Some Knitting - Some Quilting

This past week I spent time having lunch with friends, shopping, going to quilt bee, shopping.... A friend told me that she picked up the new Mason-Dixon knitting book at Barnes and Noble so I hurried on over to pick up my copy. I didn't think the book was to hit the shelves until September 16. This book is just as wonderful as their first.

I have finished a few more of my Nearly Insane blocks, and I have also have finished one of the Elegant Garden applique blocks by Laundry Basket Quilts. I love these blocks and have discovered that it probably takes me as much time, if not more, to prep the blocks and choose fabrics than it does to do the applique. Either way I love their designs and love to applique.

Also, I am a Starbucks coffee fan. Well, really I will drink anything that even closely resembles coffee. But, Starbucks is my favorite and has come out with pumpkin spice lattes for the fall season. So what could be better than having a new knitting book and a pumpkin spice latte?

Sounds like you had a nice time last week. I did not realize that Mason-dixon's new book was on sale. Should check it out soon!
Love your floral block pattern. Beautiful applique!!

Thanks your comment on my blog. Glad to know you did not major damage by the hurricane.

I can't think of anything better than a new knitting book and a drink from Starbucks! I'm thoroughly enjoying my new Mason-Dixon book. In fact, I'm enjoying a pumpkin spice chai from Starbucks right now too :)
