CWD: Games, Music and Knitting

July 20, 1864. Isabella Buchanan Edmondson wrote in her diary:

Another happy and beautiful morning. Miss Lou gave me some Cotton to knit Eddie a pr of socks. I began them, but did not get much done, most of the time playing Bagammon, Chess, or having some Music, learned Miss L. two pieces, "Brightest Eyes Quick Step", "Rosebud Waltz", she was very apt, but I fear her swimming scholar will ever be a drag to the art. Our days are as happy as can be.
 - quote from Civil War Diary Quilt written by R. Youngs -

Despite the summer heat I have managed to keep my schedule with CWD quilt. The block #50 Games, Music and Knitting is already third block in July... and if I tell you a secret... it's my fifth in this month, which means that I have taken a couple of false start ;) I sewed the next two blocks - dated 22 of July - ahead of time. I know myself... that after working day I'm too lazy to sew anything in the evening... at least when it's hot summer day!

Have an enjoyable week!!!

On the Plus Side - Aurifil Designer 2014

Iloisia uutisia!!!!

Lapin tyttö on taas turvallisesti kotona pistäydyttyään - kuulemma -"kesämatkalla"...
sukulaisia tapaamassa?

Hmmm... uskoisinko tuon mysteeriseltä vaikuttaneen katoamisen syyksi?

Aurifil's July Designer is Camille Roskelley.
She is definitely one of my favorite quilt / fabric designer. Her newest fabric line Miss Kate is out soon!

Oh, I have to spare some money to have a whole fat quarter bundle of it!

 Camille designed a very nice block for Aurifil BOM called "On the Plus Side".

Voi Fenix, sinun pitää kyllä siirtyä! Eihän siitä blokista pilkota kuin reunat!

 Here's my version of Camille's On the Plus Side - block.

I'm so happy that Lapland's girl is back home to introduce Aurifil BOM to you, my friends!
And look how beautiful new lace hat she is wearing! It's designed and made by my dear quilty friend, Tiinatei. KIITOS - vielä kerran ;O)
