My Latest Passion....


My newest things are books by Yoko Saito..Have you ever heard of her ? Just Google her name on the web or Google images for some wonder quilts that she makes. She also has her own line of fabric. I would love to buy, but can't find it anywhere near me. I did find some on the net..but I like to feel what I buy. I made a puse from this book..and I'm currently working on a wall hanging from the Houses book.. It would all be so much easier if only I could read Japanese.. but she does have quite pictures that gives you almost stet by step directions...All of the work is done by hand sewing.. so my purse is all made by hand. Fist the small peices were appliqued, then quilted.. I do most of the work while we are camping. It's so realxing to sit outside and enjoy the lake, with all the birds singing and humming birds humming by.





I also received a great little package in the mail today from Takako

a fellow blogger..So thats what I've been doing.. What have all of you been doing ??
