It's been a whirlwind of vacation prep at our house as I get the bags packed for our week in Arizona with family. I'm recruiting all the prayers I can get for safety and sanity as we make our eight hour drive tomorrow with the girls. I finished up one final gift last night for the girls' adopted great grandmother, a book cover with handles. She's an avid reader and has a few of these covers already which are falling apart from overuse. Hopefully this will be a good replacement.
I used Chairs in Grass for the exterior from Laurie Wisbrun's wonderful Tufted Tweets collection. The inside is a grey and white houndstooth from my local quilt shop. It's simple, modern, and bright -- just the way I hoped it would turn out.
I'm bringing my laptop with me as well as some hand sewing, but posts will probably be pretty sporadic over the next week. We'll see how it goes. However, I couldn't resist giving a little sneak peek at a big event that will be kicking off here at Fabric Mutt on July 9th:
Linking up to WIP Wednesday & the Let's Get Acquainted Link-up.

Have a fabulous holiday (or should I say vacation)! Hoping you are there and loving every minute at the time that I write this :-) The book cover is adorable. I love reading, but hard to find time to read and sew, and at the moment sewing's winning! Look forward to hearing about your hols and your QAL sounds great xxReplyDelete
