I went for dim sum on the weekend with my school friend who I have reconnected with, M ( I never know if I should put peoples names up!:)) and Kim. I was delighted to find out M knew Kim outside of how I know her, mainly through blogging but also seeing hwer cute creations all around town and I was reminded how nice Toronto is that way- all the overlapping circles of friends. Anyway, that was not the point. We had such a lovely time chatting away for ages and something Kim mentioned reminded me of this book- The Uncommon Quilter. My mum had this book when we went to visit her in Mexico and I was so inspired by it. The author did one quilt a week for a year. They are mostly tiny and made out of all sorts stuff she finds around her- holey socks, mesh from a box of clementines, and they are all so pretty.
