spring break

So we are off on a little family bonding vacation. I brought my hexagons along but haven't done anything with them yet. I spent a lot of time with my math/logic puzzle book today. I decided to cheat a little and I think I'm actually learning how to do these puzzles better by reading the explanations in the back.

There are a few quilt shops where we are and I have kind of high hopes for the one I want to go to tomorrow. Maybe I will have some fabric pictures to show....

I wanted to mention Quilting Stash again, it's a great quilting podcast and blog produced by Annie Smith. I mentioned this podcast the other night at the KC Modern Quilt Guild and nobody in my group seemed to know about it. I listened to the newest Quilting Stash podcast last night; it's all about quilting books, including some history books and using your library to get quilting magazines to read. I'm totally going to see if my library has quilt magazine back issues I can borrow.

Hope you're having a good week--have you read any good quilting books lately? Or non-quilting books? I have.

I'm a little jealous that you're on a vacation! I haven't heard about those podcasts either, I'll have to check it out! Thanks for sharing.
