The Devil Is In the Details and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  I have a brand new pattern designed, fabric all picked out for it, and my cutting list all ready, and it's all just waiting right now because I got an email from my publisher with my book pages, all ready for review.  Hooray!

The devil is in the details, so they say, so I'll be spending the next several days going through my book pages with a fine-toothed comb to catch any last edits before it goes off to the printer.  I hate that I can't share more than this blurred image, but just know that I love the way the book is taking shape, and I know you will too!

Last week's party was full of fantastic projects, like this icy beauty from Leanne at Devoted Quilter.  The cool colors in this quilt feel very appropriate for the season as I sit here waiting for a huge ice storm to arrive tonight (I'm hopeful our power stays on).

Marga's Crafts shared this stunning finished temperature quilt.  Marga is a quilt artist in my local guild who uses some unique techniques, and her work is absolutely amazing. 

And this cute little pillow is by AnneMarie at Stories From the Sewing Room-

Okay, friends!  It's time to party!
