My hubby called me so I told him that I bought a lamp at The Country Loft.
You know what he said right away???


"Why not at Kmart!?"


*LOL*


That's SO "HIM".
He has good humor and I get a kick of it all time.*LOL*

BTW,
Did I tell him how much damage he got this time? Nar, not on the phone.

He will be like this If I told him!

Down to south

I needed to go down the south to hit a Japanese grocery store today so I stopped by The Country Loft .

I picked up my copy of the long waiting book "Wool Crazy"by JAM.
Here is a very talented Ms. JoAnn Mullaly, signing my book.
She is a lovely woman just like her dolls and quilts.


and her gorgeous Wool Crazy!!! I feel so lucky to see this beautiful quilt in person.


Here's my copy with very cute hand made book leaf. Isn't this book leaf adorable?? What a cute idea.
Inside a book, I tell you, just SOoooooo MARVELOUS!!!!
the instruction is JoAnn's lovely hand writings also, LOove her hand writing.
you can see her writing on C-Loft's newsletter. :-)



and here's my purchase. (yes, Lisa, I bought this lamp! but I have a good excuse.*LOL*)
The lamp is Katie's Light House's. plus some wools, pearl cottons and patchwork bag pattern by JAM.

My blogger friend, Ms.Merumo asked me if I could take some picture of The-C-Loft.
So here you go, "Tour Of The Country Loft" *S*

Plain Jane


This is Plain Jane.
I finished this little quilt couple month ago but never had a chance to show on the blog.
The pattern by Cheri Saffiote-Payne sized is 17" x 23"
Very typical Cheri quilt and I love it!

Black out


Nah, not the black out.
Just time flying so quick and I found my last blog update was a month ago! *LOL*

I made the quilt above to my son's first grade teacher several years ago. It's Jan Patek's pattern and I enjoyed making little people around the border.
It's one of my favorite quilt although I don't own it. Perhaps I should make this quilt again, this time just for me and kids. :-)


During a blog break, I've been working on my hubby's quilt so hard. I hope that I'll be able to finish it before October.
Wish me luck!
