Some of my recent discoveries: blog hops, linky parties, rug hooking, wool applique and Sue Spargo.
For those of you who are not familiar with Sue Spargo, she is a Folk Art Quilt designer. You can find her website at www.suespargo.com.
In November I bought her new book "Creative Stitching".
I was walking by a display and this book reached out and grabbed me.
The cover is amazing and the inside does not disappoint. This book demonstrates the embroidery stitches Sue uses in her work. It also shows actual examples of the stitches on portions of her quilts---wait for it----in color! And what colors there are, I love her color combinations. This book is delicious.
Today I made another Sue Spargo discovery, she has a new fabric collection for Rober Kaufman Fabrics, which includes two panels.
Here is a description of the fabric collection from Sue's website:
Here is a picture of one of the panels.
I can think of all sorts of things I can do with this panel.
If you go to Sue Spargo's facebook page you can enter for a chance to win the panel.
Can you tell she inspires me?
