We have had such lovely weather the last few days! I love spring and fall! Moderate temps, lots of sun, few bugs out yet. The best times of the year! I've managed to get out and really enjoy some wonderfully long walks with my dogs lately.
On Saturday I took Zoey out, and we walked six miles to the library in the next town over. Hubby picked me up, and we made a quick trip to the grocery store before heading back home.
Sunday, after church, I took River out for about three miles. He's such a happy boy! Such a contrast to Zoey's "all business" attitude.
I spent some time researching information on one of the quilts from the quilt show, too. I was quite enamored of the "Hooked on Hexies" quilt (the one with the light green background, from my previous blog post). The artist gave enough information about it that I was able to track down the patterns. I found out that there was an online quilt magazine I hadn't previously discovered! It's called The Quilt Pattern Magazine and is a monthly downloadable magazine, 12 issues per year - at quite a competitive price!
The hexies designs were part of a six-month workshop in the magazine called "Dear Me, I'm Going to Pieces!" The workshop was in the June, 2012 to November, 2012 issues. Extra hexagon designs were also shared in the online community, made available to subscribers. What fun! There are already several other patterns from back issues that I'd like to get. I'm planning to pick up all of the back issues over the next few weeks! These go back to 2011; I have six months' worth already. Can't wait to get the rest!
