C&C Knitting works

I was pleased to see the comment from Cindy about their blog, turn up in response to my post about how I was trying to collate a list of Textile Weblogs. I was getting worried thinking that knitters were reading knitting blogs and stitchers were reading stitching blogs and never the two groups crossing!

Anyway, C&C Knitting works is a knitting and sewing blog kept by a mother and daughter team Cindy and Carrie.

Layers of Meaning

It’s a mystery but somehow Serena Fenton’s Layers of Meaning disappeared off my side bar. I must have managed to do it when I was mucking about getting the categories to appear at the top. I don’t know how but I did. Anyway its is restored to its rightful place this morning and sorry Serena if you spotted it and wondered why. Serena’s blog is a great read on surface design, art quilts, and contemporary embroidery and very much a regular read. Why didn’t I notice? I cheat you see, rather than moving from blog to blog to read and use bloglines an RSS reader to keep me informed about blog updates so I had not noticed that it had happened.

CQ Eye Candy

After an absolutely crazy day at work a lovely surprise arrived in the post today for I received my copy of the book Darsie Bruno compiled titled CQ Eye Candy. Since she has devoted a whole section to my crazy quilted blocks this was obviously a huge ego boost but it was a pleasure to open and see 80 odd pages of stitching from crazy quilters around the globe. It is as the title says eye candy. It is published by The CQ newsletter and details about it can be found on their site.
