My new favourite blog

Now and then I stumble across a blog that I love so much I want to share it and this happened a while back when I stumbled on Freda's Hive.  If you haven't been there before, go and have a look.  I think Nanette is unusual in how she combines fabulous applique mixed with both a traditional and modern feel and fabrics which I haven't really seen anywhere else.  She tells me other people are better than her (typical quilter) but I like her style the best.  If you look at her new header (Nanette, if you'd prefer me to take this picture out, just let me know), you kind of get a feel for what she does.  If you have a minute, take a look at her beautiful tea towels and her going to market quilt - those are my two current favourites.

  3. I love Nanette too - and my styles and tastes have totally changed because of her. (I also blame her for my new addiction to Japanese fabric! :) She lives not far from me and we've met a couple of times - she's as lovely in real life as she sounds on her blog. Glad you enjoy her too!

  5. You are so sweet. Really. Thank you so much. It is the best praise I could get. You know how it is when you finish a project and show your family and they barely glance. But when we share our projects together it encourages each of us. That is just the best thing and then when someone appreciates what you've done, like you and this post, it is just the best ever feeling. Thank you my dear. And back at ya! You do such marvelous work. Thank you.
