My new magazine

I have been letting most of my magazine subscriptions expire. I don't need them. I have a million and a half patterns that I haven't got to yet, but they are starting to feel like the same ole', same ole' stuff. I still get Australian Patchwork & Quilting and American Patchwork & Quilting, but the rest are no longer coming...and I miss finding a quilting magazine in my mailbox. I went to the book store the other day and found Quilting Arts. I bought the special edition about the Houston International Quilt Festival and was showing it to my daughter...the art major. She is going to be able to use one of the patterns as a starting point for one of her projects. She needed an idea and this one the professor approved of. Isn't it cute? OK, now maybe I don't need to make any birds since she'll be doing it, but I think I still might need to make a bird or 2. They look like they might be cute little pincushions.

Those birds are adorable! And "pincushions" was my thought when I saw them, too!!

I love those little birdies!!! If your daughter is making them up and wants to make some moolah, email me I'd surely buy a few :)
Hope all is well with you and yours.
