I have awesome friends

My best friend (the one who's getting married this fall) decided to go on a impromptu trip back to London. I was excited to join her but then hemmed and hawwed long enough for the airfare to go from $700 to $1500 (turns out it just takes a week). I REALLY couldn't find any way to justify that.


But she was terribly nice enough to send me some requested goodies from the fabulous V&A show: Quilts 1700-2010 and I am eternally grateful. These fat quarters are ENORMOUS. I'm talking fat quarter meters, giving a piece that measures 21"x26" or so. Those must be some wide fabrics!

The book is fantastic and Mr. Peabody borrowed it almost immediately (it's ok, I know where he lives). The fabric is in a special quarantine until I figure out what great amazing project is worthy. I'm thinking something traditional.

Thanks again Miss Pie!

Hey Allison. Yes, it's been too long. Unfortunately I can't make it out to Knit Nites as they're always on Wednesdays (girl's night).

Weaving is a double edge sword. The equipement is large and costly, but it seems to reduce the stash and quite quickly. I have to say that it's not something that interests me terribly. Too much analytical planning for my tastes.
