  1. #1. Bonnie sent me.
    #2. I LOVE 'directions at a glance.' Fabulous.
    #3. "A creative mess is better than tidy idleness." OK - I'm hooked. I'm adding you to my reader today.

    (I also loved the quilt show!)

  2. I absolutely echo Linda in TX comment --- couldn't have said it better! The tidy idleness is my mantra --- need to print it and put it on my husband's tidy desk --- as opposed to my "mess"! Bonnie sent me.

  3. Thank you ladies! I thought about posting pictures of my sewing room but didn't because I'm so embarrassed by how messy I truly am! I've since tidied up a bit, but when it gets back to my "normal" I'll post!

  4. Bonnie sent me also, just wanted to let you know that "directions at a glance" was the first thing that I noticed in Bonnie's new book. I thought it was great great idea. Loved your quilt show.

  6. I'm so glad you like the Directions at a Glance! You're comments are so wonderful and welcome!

    Come back for The Quilt Show next week - and send me one of your quilts to show!

    And thanks for teh "directions at a glance" in Bonnie's newest book. I really appreciate that feature!!

  10. ditto on Linda's comments! Directions at a glance looks like the sketches I end up making from some other books when there are just too many words when a little sketch would do! thanks for adding it to Bonnie's book!

  11. Beautiful quilts. Thanks for including Freida's Flowers. I too love directions at a glance.

  12. I love your quilt show! Also, I loved the directions at a glance in Bonnie's new book. Jo Anna

  15. I came to visit from Bonnie's blog. Smith Mountain Morning is my favorite from Bonnie,s new book. I plan to make it and add some log houses to it.
