Some kind of wonderful ... indeed

It just happened that my youngest blossie was selected for a CWA Public Speaking competition in Bathurst this week. I could hardly visit Bathurst without popping in to The Home Patch. As serendipity would have it, Annie Downs' new book, 'Some Kind of Wonderful', had just arrived and was ready for purchase! 
Annie never disappoints. This book is filled with sweet and whimsical projects. Here are some of my favourites, and will be added to my ridiculously unachievable 'to do' list!
A very sweet, birdy cushion, embellished with felt daisies and jumbo ric-rac.
Surely the prettiest heat bag ever, with Annie's distinctive felted woollen blooms.
And a simple, and very lovely daisy quilt.

These are just three of sixteen projects in Annie's book, available at THe Home Patch, hot off the press!


  1. I also fell in love with that book when I went to Quilt Market a few weeks ago. i had to have it and I don't even embroider! Well, I am learning. LOL!
    Here is a picture of the display with some of the projects in the book:

    My favorite was the travel case to put your passport. sooo cute!!

  2. Too picked out 2 of the 3 projects I tagged as favorites :)
    great minds..... :)

  3. Arghh, so unfair! I don't think we can get this book in the UK!! Fingers crossed that it's just not out yet...
