It's Not Just Me ... is it?

Blogging around over the last few days, I've discovered some new blogs to enjoy.

The quilts over here are unbelievable! I've had an aversion to quilting - don't ask me why, but these make me want to quilt!

Peppermint Patcher who i've been following for a while, and who also makes incredible quilts, sent me this in reply to a question i asked her about her latest project:



... i was mesmerised so much that by my 10th or so veiwing, Mr Marmalade came to see what was keeping my eyes so wide eyed and transfixed upon my screen, was it David Beckham or Johnny Depp? (Kitty, as soon as I find it, I will send you THAT picture) ..

I found One Pretty Thing, who lists all sorts of bloggy tutorials every day! Over there, I found Firefly Hill and also Fat Orange Cat who makes the most amazing Corduroy bags. I mean .. i never knew corduroy was so versatile and ... well .. exciting!

But there at Fat Orange Cat, this picture caught my eye ... I asked Mr Marmalade just to make sure ... and then I asked Jimmy ... Both of them agreed ..


The pic below was taken a couple of years ago during a corset trying on session with The Italian Connection (on the right). What d'you reck???

I love Kellie's (Don't Look Now) work - isn't she the most talented appliquér you've ever seen?!

Thanks for the links to the other blogs who are new to me - it's always a joy to discover more talent, more 'life'.

I didn't realise I would create a whole new distraction for you in sending you that video! Did you go to youtube and watch her other quilting videos? There are quite a few...
