A Book to Love

Today a new book arrived in the mail. I picked this up at Joggles, using her day light savings time sale. This book came up in one of my groups where a lady used her RR blocks and made a book out of them. What a cool idea right? So I started a search for this book which has been out for a few years. Picking up a used one was out of my budget, cost more than a new one, don't know why!! So I sprang for a new one and I am delighted with it. I have so many ideas to try when the new studio is open LOL. Should be a couple more weeks, we move in 2 weeks but you know how it is. The kitchen and bedrooms etc come before a sewing studio. DARN!! If I lived alone I would work on that sewing room first thing. I could live on snacks and sleep on the couch!! Crazy aren't I??? 
I wanted to share with you my work in progress on my needle roll for BCQC at StitchMap. It is coming along. I still have some stitches to do, a couple seams to cover. The a picture goes off to my mentor for her approval. Then I get to move on the Lesson 5, Lesson 7 was just completed as this is a new course so I am getting caught up. I just had to push myself to get this done and through the parts I wasn't happy with. A very interesting experience. I sure do look at my work and my blocks differently. Now to just find something to mark my stitches with that doesn't show so much so I am happy with that aspect.
Hoping your week is going great and you are creating lots of sweet art.
