Lucky Coin

So life still feels like it is moving at lightning speed...or rather just a stressful speed.

There were lots of changes at my job on Friday that have me all worked up. They are probably good changes but any change at this time in my life feels uncomfortable and scary. Work changes, home changes, etc....too many changes all at once. But I've already complained about how much is going on in the next two months so I won't bore you with another pity party.

This weekend Andrew and I bought a new couch! We bought it at Intaglia but unfortunately the one we picked is not pictured on their website. It looks a little like this one, only smaller, with no back cushions and a lighter colored linen. I hope it works in the new house!
Example

Books that my mom sent me this weekend:
They both have really good patterns but the directions seem complicated...especially in the Folk bags one... I think I will need a more experienced knitter to help me along.

Sunday Andrew and I watched Hotel Rwanda. An excellent movie but very, very, very sad and heart-renching.

I've been meaning to catch up on some quilting links.
Be Be Bold Quilts [via wee wonderfuls] are super cool. Lucky coin is my favorite.

Example

Felt Wall instructions [via angry chicken] This is exactly what I want to create in my room in the new house. I can't wait!

Oooooooh, lovely orange quilt!

I am so excited for you that you're getting new stuff for the house! You'll have a busy summer getting everything decorated, but I know it will be amazing. And don;t forget to post photos for those of us who aren;t there to see it in person. AND! Send me your new address, too. An number, when you move.
