saying thank you

I recently bought a bunch of books to say thank you to the wonderful, generous ladies who helped run my little shop in town while I was sick.  I had such a beautiful, relaxing experience flicking through them all with my cup of tea, I wanted to share it with you.
I love blogging and reading blogs for its interaction and community, but there's something about a book that makes me feel a kind of solitude and peace that I don't get with a screen. And the experience of going back, finding new things, being inspired feels a little less overwhelming in something that's complete and static. Maybe it's the way my eyes can settle on a page that's not always scrolling.
I especially loved the above Playing with Books and Anna Maria Horner's Needlepoint Notebook. They were so full of new ideas for me. A world of creativity and expression I hadn't yet explored, of things that take time. And Sunday Morning Quilts was was great resource for thinking through how I wanted to sort my scraps.
I hope my photos contain enough information that you could look them up if you want to. Feel free to ask for more in the comments. xx


  1. Thank you for letting me be a part of your shop and for my gorgeous book!! You are a wonderful and inspiring woman. Xx

  2. I have Sunday Morning Quilts and I LOVE it :)


I so love your comments! I read all of them and reply when I can. If you don't hear back, I'm lost under a mound of scraps or outside jumping on the trampoline with the kids. Jodi. xx
