Renee Plains new book...

Stitches from the Schoolhouse
Picked up my copy yesterday!
My friend, Kimber over at http://heirloomsbyashtonhouse.blogspot.com/, was the editor and I helped Renee by piecing her large quilt, Abacus.
Renee is such a talented designer and I love all the projects in her book.
The hard part is deciding which one to do first.

Focus Cheryl!
So many distractions and sew little time!

Looks like an interesting book. There is nothing like a new book, a cup of coffee and plenty of time to read :-). Enjoy your new book.

I just bought a couple of these one for me and one for a giveaway. I love this book. Great quilt!!

Somehow the little apple pincushion in it made me smile :)

Will look our for this book. Seems no matter where we are in the world we have the same dilemmas. To quote a very wise lady, "So many distractions and sew little time".
