Not much going on around here today.  I’ve had car trouble so that’s been taking up a lot of my time.  I do want to let you know about some new books in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The above, Holly Jolly; French Braid Quilts; and Tick Tock Dresden Clocks all caught my eye.
These are a couple pages from the Holly Jolly book.  Looks like some fun projects there.
And here are four more new books.  Take 5 Fat Quarters (I love the Take 5 books); Baby Says Sew; Urban and Amish; and The New Hexagon, all look like must-have books to me.  Stop by the shop and check out these books.  I’m sure you’ll be like me…unable to resist getting at least one!

Looks like you have some great books there. I will have to look for The New Hexagon book. I have developed a love for English Paper Piecing lately. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for the great link. Love the tutorial.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

P.S. I´ve got the snow tires on the car just in snow forecast here yet, hope you don´t have to dig out your snow shoes, either! :o)
