The soup recipe this time is for Curried Pear Soup. It is interesting and can be served hot or cold. I like a little less sesame oil in mine but you will have to be the judge! http://www.quiltsoup.com/soup_to_nuts.html

We are working furiously on our “Cradle to Cradle” book for release in July 2009 by Kansas City Star Publications.

Until next time,
Barbara

Okay...so I'm doing a little blog hopping today and what to my wondering eyes should appear? A Henry Glass Fabrics blog. Be still my heart!!! I adore every Henry Glass Fabric I have ever used. Matter of fact, I'm from Utah and I have been looking for a perfect background fabric and couldn't find it here, though the nicer shops do carry some wonderful Henry Glass collections. BUT, last week while on a little 'get away' with hubby, we visited a wonderful shop, The Quilter's Store, in Sedona, Arizona, owned by Patty Krause. They had the exact tone on tone blender that I needed. It wasn't until I got home a few days ago that I looked to see who made the fabric. Well, it was by Nancy Crow for Henry Glass. I should have known as I 'fondled' it in the shop and commented on how wonderful it was but hubby was anxious to get on the road and I just collected my treasures and packed them for the remainder of the trip. Now that I have had a chance to really look at everything I picked up I wish I had brought home 3 or 4 yards. I'm always looking for beautiful neutral blenders. I may have to email them for more. Anyway, I apologize for rambling but I was just so excited to find (belatedly) your blog. I will visit often. Now I'm trying to behave myself but am wrestling with the Bubblegum Fun kit. I really would love to get it but I will ponder it for a while. Well, I've made a complete fool of myself by now but I'm posting this anyway. I will be checking back often. Thank you for all the beautiful fabric collections you have made available to us all.
