Mercy, we're almost half-way through December already, and Christmas rapidly approacheth.

I have had this in mind throughout the year while making the Civil War blocks, and I believe I will give this quilt to Timothy. I have no idea if the somber colors will look dull to him since he is color-blind, but I think the historical aspect of the quilt will interest him along with the several printed artifact sections on the blocks. Meanwhile, BB CW #50:

We have a big evening tomorrow night at Vintage Design Group. Each of us will talk about a certain type of fabric, then we will each go home with a sample of each fabric type as a souvenir.

I worked on the 6th and final edit of my book last week, and now it gets a final correction and heads off to the Kansas City Star printer. Publication is scheduled for February. It is such a strange feeling to think that I can't make any more changes on it even if I wanted to! The book is just beautiful. More on that later.

I know you have to be very excited about your upcoming book. I am anxious to see it.
And, you bad girl. Your last post was about the Needleprint online jigsaws. I think you have turned me into an addict. Where are the Online Jigsawers Anonymous meetings held? LOL!
