I’m off to Puyallup tomorrow morning on the wings of Continental!
If I don’t land in the Hudson, I’ll be having lunch in Washington tomorrow afternoon! I got confirmation today that all of my quilts for the trunk show made it safe and sound.
Natch, I filled my iTouch with 3 movies — I get so bored on a short flight, let alone a 6+-hour trip.
I downloaded Brideshead Revisited
The Pink Panther
The Girl with the Pearl Earring
My Amazon Kindle arrived yesterday so I ordered several books for the ride, too!
The Reader (Bernhard Schlink)
sTori Telling (Tori Spelling)
On Writing (Stephen King)
Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea! (Chelsea Handler)
Pickle Road finally opened again after huge trees fell during our last wind storm, knocking out power lines.
Look at the size of the tree the fell — you can see the snapped tree trunk in the woods towards the middle right of the picture.
QH reader and fan , Marcia, from Rockport, Texas sent me these two books the other day. I’ve been reading them and they are terrific. Look, I’ll be straight with you. I’d never pick these up in a bookstore, but I’m known to read a little of everything and really, really try to live outside of my “bubble.” I liked these books – Everything just is what it is. It kind cuts the drama in a life.
Marcia also sent me a needle book for my collection! Thanks, kiddo!
The American Quilter’s Society sent me a few books for review and they did a terrific job (at least from the covers). I haven’t cracked them yet, but I’m impressed! They all look like something I’d buy. I can’t wait to review them for Quilter’s Home, because you never know, dumpling.
New Cross Stitch
I found this Silhouette cross stitch sampler in the NeedleworkShoppe.com catalog and had to order it. Now you know and I know that I’ll never pick up a needle to work it up, but a guy’s gotta do what a guy’s gotta do!
Here’s a sneak peek at my next cover!
More when I get back! Until then. . . xoxom
