Saturday Searching

Woke up this morning not feeling too well. When I looked in the mirror, lo and behold a cold sore had appeared overnight and my throat is sore and scratchy. I am so ready for warm weather! Anyway, I decided after trying to rest that I needed to do something productive but not too strenuous, so I went to the studio and thought I would sort through my magazine and books. I have been looking for one in particular that has a quilt in it called "Cinnamon And Nutmeg". I have a quilt kit in my cupboard and I can't find the book with that pattern in it to save my life. If anyone out there can help me out with a copy of that pattern, I would gladly swap a few FQ's for it!
I still have alot of work to do in my cupboard but I found these quilt blocks in there and decided to get them out and start working on the applique. Love to applique in the evenings, am still working on my little baskets!
I had better get back to finishing what I started. Or maybe I will just turn out the light and go lay down. Nap time wins!!!!

"Cinnamon & Nutmeg" is in the February 2009 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. This quilt is on my "to do" list, too!

Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Puttering in the studio is a perfect activity when energy. Those applique blocks will be so pretty when they are done, what a nice way to pass away the evenings.

Sometimes we just have to do that..take a nap to rejuvenate. I hope you get feeling better so you can tackle those pretty blocks soon.

Did you find the Cinnamon & Nutmeg pattern in the Feb '09 AP&Q magazine? If not, I can hunt for mine. Looks like you have a lot of projects to keep you busy.
Hope you're feeling better soon.

I dont know what magazine/book that pattern is in, but *Cinnamon and Nutmeg* is a lovely name - sounds warm and yummy! :o)
Hope you are feeling better! I am ready for winter to be over too, Jimmy keeps asking if he can go outside to ride his *bike*, he just doesnt get this winter thing yet!

I love your applique block patterns. I've been agonizing over whether to get her "Applique Affair" patterns. I just love her stuff!

Take Care and be kind to yourself
