Hi all, I am getting back in the groove since last weekend when Sarah was here for a long weekend. We had fun, resting, puzzling and some shopping. It was cold and rainy, even colder one day than it was in L'Ville. Here some pictures of what's up!!
I've been reading a lot, finished Enemy Women( good) by the same author of News of the World (very good) and now have started Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead. It is very good but hard to read about some of the horrors of slave conditions in the South before the Civil War. This book is an award winner or runner up.
Before we left IL I cut all the bright leftover material I had, and I had a lot, into some kits, a yellow brick road, etc and the rest I cut into 5" squares. I had just under 500 squares. I have sewn them into random 4-patch blocks and will sew them into 3 child sized quilts. Who knows what I will do with them. Someone will need them someday!! Here are the blocks. Tomorrow I'll lay them out maybe with pictures.
Watching Victoria, Taboo, Homeland, and Blacklist.
Finished reading The Dry. Started it yesterday. Very good mystery set in Australia. Working on my squares quilts made from 5" squares from all of my bright stash fabrics. Started by sewing pairs together. Really bothered my back. Very stiff. Not sure why. Maybe the rainy day we are having. Will post pictures tomorrow. Finished Sarah's knitted throw. Whew!,
