Sharing A Good Book

Yesterday Tim and I checked out the local
library. I was happy to see that for a small town it has a nice selection of books.
I was drawn to the bright colors on the cover
of this Quilting In No Time book.
Can you guess why?
It was because it is green!
 Green like the trees I've been dreaming about.
It was great to see this table runner made from
happy Spring flower fabrics.
Sad, but with more snow on the way, I have to
take my Spring from wherever I can find it.
Here is another version of those oh so famous
pillow cases we all love.
I like the patchwork strip that was added.

For anyone looking for a Kindle holder pattern
I found one and saved it on my Sew Sweet
Pinterest board.


  1. I love that kindle holder, I'm so glad you found the library, everyone needs one!

  2. What sweet fabric pieces, Kimberly. That kindle holder is great! Glad you have a decent library there- xo Diana

  3. Evening Kimberly, love the fabric too....great book....Blessings Francine.

  4. Those pretty spring fabrics are beautiful. We sure need something to mimic the season right now don't we? Tomorrow night we get the storm with over 10 cm. of snow. Ugh! Surely this will be the end of winter weather won't it? Have a super weekend Kimberly. Maybe you'll get some sewing done. Hugs, Pam

  5. A good library is at the top of my list of 'must haves' wherever we have lived. I love that tea cosy!

  6. A good library is to me, as important or more than the supermarket. Lovely kindle holder, would be good for a recipe or pattern book also.Cheers from jean

  7. Having a library to depend on is a very 'safe' feeling..Love the book and so many cute ideas to try out. Hope it warms up soon for you. xo

  8. That does look like a fun book. I love all the cheery, spring like fabrics here. That Kindle holder is interesting. I wonder if it would work for an iPad. Hope you have a nice weekend!

  9. That looks like a fun and not too difficult table runner.

  10. Kimberly,

    Library is a woman's best friend!!!

    I love the runner and the kindle holder, both are sweet.

  11. Hey! I could do that. Simple, yet beautiful. Just what I like.

    When I saw the cover of the book, I knew it was just for you. Not only green but the old, kitchen tablecloth fabric. So you!

  12. Good Afternoon Kimberly, Snap, I have this book aswell, it was given to me for my birthday and it is full of lovely things to make. I especially like the pin cushion and the pillow slip....the red is gorgeous.
    It is lovely to meet you. I have become your newest follower and look forward to getting to know you.
    I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! the door is always open.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Best Wishes

  13. That looks like a good book, the quilting book, and I love the runner and the teapot cozy, the buttons on it make it unique, I should make that!
    I also love the pillow cases. I should go over and look at your sewing board.
    It was 0 deg C. when I got up this morning, it was the warmest morning this year so far!!! Funny to think of isn't it. Everything outside is dirty and muddy, but beautiful!!!
    Have a good day!

  14. Love the book, Kim.. My kind of patterns.. We are expecting snow tonight, too.. xo

  15. OH that book is adorable!
    I have been doing some back reading here & your curtains are wonderful!
    Your interesting life is full of adventure & SNOW!
    Here on the west coast we are still waiting for spring too, its been a mild winter here, not like yours, but sooo wet!

  16. I've been kinda wanting to start sewing again. After seeing these cute things, now I KNOW I want to make something! I don't know whether to thank you or not! Ha Ha. It's just finding time and tearing myself away from the computer is the problem...that and seeing if my sewing machine still works! It's been in storage for too long. I love these patterns and will be looking in our library for the book. Thanks, Kimberly!

  17. Such cute ideas, love the teapot cover and the kindle stand....I need one of those.

  18. Love that book! I'm going to see if I can find it. Yes, the pillowcases and especially the little cherry trim? Get out! Too darn cute if you ask me. You've got me inspired now. Thanks for sharing! Where are you again? I can't keep up with you! LOL!

  19. I LOVE that little tea cozy with the pom pom fringe!! I should try to figure out how to make one.
