Listen to the episode HERE
- We had a wonderful beach vacation, but came home to no power in the house. Now that we have it again, I am saying repeated thanks to Mr. Carrier!
- Sam improved her swimming skills over the 4th of July, and Maddy finally consented to getting more than just her feet wet.
- Working on/playing around with a quilted floor mat using a jelly roll. Once it's done and if I like how it turns out I will post a tutorial.
- Wendy Johnson Summer Solstice Mystery Shawl
- Westknits Mystery Shawl: Rockefeller by Stephen West
- Mini quilts from some of my recent sketches. Thinking about posting some of the patterns here, I'll keep you posted if/when I get my act together.
- Lessons in Electric Quilt: an experienced quilter and EQ user has posted a series of lessons (pdf format) on the Quilting Board. I have been using them to get more out of this program and use it for future quilt projects.
The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani
What I'm Reading and Watching Lately:
- Lillies (BBC tv series)
- Land Girls (BBC tv series)
- Advance copy of The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
- Finished the 50 Shades of Grey series, and I talk a little about the Erotica genre and my opinion of the term "Mommy Porn."
- Better read than 50 Shades: Bared to You by Sylvia Day...that is if you like that sort of book....with sex, I mean.....um, a LOT of sex......between 2 consenting adults of course......and a super-hot/super-rich young and virile guy...........I only read it for the articles of course. OK I'll shut up now.
