A friend passed on a blogging award to me this week (she's also having a give-away to celebrate two years of blogging), and I thought I would use the chance to mention two of my very favorite bloggers who have recently published books! I was very excited to receive both in the mail this week and am using the occasion to finally get back to sewing again! I'll dedicate a post to each of them this week.
Tonya was one of the very first bloggers I "met" online back in 2006. We even had the chance to meet in person in Paris in 2008! I joined one of her very first online classes, and receiving her book this week inspired me to return to one of the projects I started in that class in the fall of 2007. That's a long time to let something marinate, and I might do things differently now (like using a bit more contrast between the background and the letters or leaving out the really dark green letters), but I'm happy with the finished top and binding (below). I hope to have it basted very soon.
As always, thanks Tonya and everyone else whose use of Tonya's unruly letters have inspired me over the past few years.
