Happy New Year Pine Needlers!

Are we recovering from the Holidays yet?  Have your made some goals for the New Year?  I hope they include quilting goals.

Have you visited Bonnie McCaffery's youtube videos?  You really should check out all her interviews that she does with recognizable personalities of the quilting universe.  I found a really unusual one today.  It's with a Canadian lady quilter named Dominique Ehrmann and her quilts would really inspire out member, Debby.  Do you recall Debby's presentation on pop- up books?  This lady will take that a step beyond into the quilting world. The video is worth watching.

Here is a witty little saying for those who must sew.  I hope this link works for you.  I think we can relate to this one too.

Are you thinking a Block of the Month might be in your 2016 quilting year?  Amy Gibson from Stitchery Dickory Dock has just started one and the first block looks pretty.  She also has some great tutorials and a shop with lovely patterns to chose from.
This month our "mystery" question will be, "What kind of books are Dominique Ehrmann's quilts inspired by?"  The answer is pop-up books.  We will be asking that question at our next guild meeting and a name drawn for a prize.  Stay warm and keep stitching.  Diana
