Thanks and things

First, I must show you the treasures that arrived in the mail from Suzy Quaife.  I won her very generous giveaway a few weeks ago and all these pretties appeared in my mailbox...

Thank you SO much Suzy!!! 
They're almost too pretty to use!

Some of these will be used as I progress through her fun Fabric Lace Book online class.  More information can be found HERE about the class.  

Before I show you any more pictures of my fabric journal I have a few things I've found that you might find of interest...

1.  Quinn of 'Comptonia' has discovered a really fun way to find out more about the International Space Station and when it can be seen passing overhead.  Go HERE to read about it. 

2.  C&T Publications has a fun free tutorial to make an 'Elegance Pleated Clutch' HERE.  

3.  There are instructions  to make your own yarn swift HERE.  

4.  Kathy Shaw is taking registrations for her *free* beginners crazy quilt online class (Basic Crazy Quilting Course - BCQC) and you will have to hurry because registration for this class closes at midnight on Sept. 30.  I've taken this class and it's wonderful.  Go HERE.  

Now, on to a few more pictures of my fabric journal...




Today the quote is from Jimi Hendrix.... "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace"
