For the better part of a year I have been closely guarding a secret. When Joan Ford started her new book, she asked me to contribute to it.
Recently published, Joan's book includes a section on hand piecing by--wait for it--ME! See pages 57-59. And Joan included a hand piecing project in the back of the book which is so darn cute and combines both hand piecing and hand applique! There is a ton of useful information in this book--truly something for everyone! Check it out! Thanks, Joan, for including me!
We've all seen them, all coveted them, and ultimately bought them. Yes, those Clover Wonder Clips! I have the original small red, the longer green, and the newly-released short neons! For easy access, I tossed them onto a small old Syracuse China plate. Don't they look festive?
And here is where they reside: on my windowsill between a pink depression glass dish of coated paperclips and a Fiestaware knockoff of uncoated paperclips and small runs of staples. Notice the runner under these lovelies--it's an older design of Joan Ford's. My absolute favorite for narrow places.
That's what's new in my world tonight. What's new with you? Please share in the comments! Many thanks to those who take time to comment--it makes my day!
