Ellen Murphy at American Homestead has her first book coming out soon :0)I first 'met' (online) Ellen while working on Barbara Brackman's Civil War BOW. Both of us have blocks that Ms. Brackman included in her Civil War Sampler book too. Since then we both participated in Barbara's next BOW, Grandmother's Choice and Ellen is finishing up on Dixie Diaries.
The best part is that Ellen not only made her blocks, she posted them as a tute each week. They are the best! Especially for many of the CW blocks were we were cutting with 1/16th of an inch increments!!! A challenge but fun :0)
I know first hand how well Ellen can put directions together! She also has her own patterns and is now a vendor (she was at Houston market this year). Ellen is also well traveled. I enjoy following on her blog with projects, tutes, travel and food! Loved her trip to Holland :0)
This is a link to her blog. Wishing you the best Ellen!
Enjoy your weekend
Groetjes, Jo (Dutch for Greetings :0)
