I haven't picked up a sewing needle since before Christmas which is absolutely unheard of for me. I have managed to do a little knitting but that is minimal too. Mindless staring at the tv seems to be about all I'm capable of at the moment, which is definitely NOT me either (normally I hate tv). It seems my normal February blahs have hit early this year.
On another note, at least I've received a few things in the mail in the past couple of weeks that are rather interesting. You might remember that I got a new bookcase just before Christmas after the demise of my old, well worn, Ikea model. Now I have more space I really need to get more books in order to fill it....right?? So....
This book caught my eye for two reasons...it's about crazy quilting AND I love the hexagon quilt that is shown throughout the book. I would love to do one at some point.

I have coveted this book ever since I first saw it reviewed on the internet. All the instructions (and very detailed ones too) are in the book for not only making this lovely little house workbox, but also for a matching needlebook and eight other charming sewing accessories. I don't think I have ever seen a book with such detailed instructions for every step along the way. Love it!
