delightful book

One of my favorite blogs/Instagrams/ is Sheryl Johnson's Temecula Quilt Company.
She recently published a book, Quirky Little Quilts, with Martingale.

I've been loosely following along on her blog's current 4 inch finished block Friday sew-a-long and look forward to using my limited school year sewing time to make more blocks.
Her book is a delight in how she puts together fabrics.
A happy book!

a trip to Italy

Our family took a trip to Italy this August.
We walked in the footsteps of Andy's grandfather who emigrated from Caserta.
We spent most of our time in the Bologna area, staying in the countryside, visiting the Modena vinegar making and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese making,  then ended with a trip to Rome.
