Yummy Book

 Well I'm back and my computer is working much much better... Computer Man had to strip it back to it's original configuration so it came back with my data but no software programs so I am busy trying to reload what I really need... He said I needed to delete a lot of files and get more ram.. so that is on my list also..

When I was without my computer I was looking through my books for ribbon embroidery and ran across this book I bought some time ago...  Does anyone else buy books just because the book makes them feel good???  This book is just yummy!

I'll never do a project from this book but love everything in it.... the colors, the fabric, the lace, the flowers...just everything...  I will try to dye some ribbon the colors they used for their roses...
It is loaded with projects using antiqued lace like Cathy K. sells on her Etsy shop.

But I've also added other things to the list...  I found this 2000 issue of Inspirations on Ebay and it is FILLED with the most delightful birds... It seems like ages since I've done a bird... But Ritva's artist blocks are coming and I know I will do a bird on one of her blocks...

Finding time to stitch has been difficult and also finding it hard to get back to my suffrage quilt...  I'm thinking I will start a small block for Maureen.

Thanks for this post Gerry! The Inspirations magazine is just what I have been looking for. I went to ebay and there are several issues available, so I bought one! $14 with free shipping. I can't thank you enough.
