Did You Know?

It's National Pancake Day?

These lovely photos were swiped from Williams and Sonoma
they have several pancake recipes they are featuring today.
My favorite is the oven baked (German pancake). I have two iron skillets just
to make these and these alone!
The sweet potato pancake with pecans looks like a good one to try this weekend!

In other news...

I have a book review for you!

Some spectacular quilts!

Are you loving this?

And a little pillow too!

These fabulous quilts are from the Quilted Crow girls and can be found
in their newest book published by Martingale:

This book is jam packed full of fun projects... and include 
very doable applique in wool felt and cotton backgrounds.

  • Experience the sumptuous pleasures of working with wool—including reverse appliqué—to create distinctive designs
  • Select from 12 appealing patterns in a variety of sizes for all skill levels
  • Make charming lap quilts, table runners, a pillow, framed applique, wall hanging, and more

  • Country Elegance is by best buddies
     Leonie Bateman and
    Deirdre Bond-Abel

    available through Martingale and Amazon.

    Aren't these two adorable?
    You can check out their blog here.

    They have great instructions in the book for applique and reverse
    applique too.

    This one...

     goes to the top of my list!

    Because I just scratched this one off my list!

    Isn't that a good way to start the weekend?!?

    7 friends stopped by to chat:

    One of my colleagues informed me that today was national pancake day. I've decided to celebrate it tomorrow with a crepe or two!

    Some beautiful quilts! I love doing hand applique, I just wish it didn't take me so long so I could do more projects. Love the star quilt!
