Ten sprig blocks done….thirty to go…but I’ve only been working on them for a little over a month…at that rate it is possible to finish the quilt by year’s end…but…you know…we’ll see how that goes.
So far so good. This is surely a nice way to spend our cold winter evenings…cuddled in a cushy chair in front of the fireplace and TV and stitching away.
Judy, at Patchwork Times, had a contest for a subject for her Tuesday link party. Since I’m a reader, I mentioned sharing books. Judy chose that idea and generously gave me a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. I was so excited! and used it to get some awesome fabric for my Stars and Sprigs quilt.
Thank you so much Judy. That was really nice of you and I appreciate it.
Speaking of which, the book I am reading right now is “Speaking from the Bones” by Alan Bradley. I’ve waited a year for this book to come out.
The star of the story is Flavia, a precocious 11 year old growing up in an old English mansion. She’s a genius in chemistry, lives to solve murder mysteries and can be a little melodramatic.
I have read every other book in the series and they are are so much fun! Mr. Bradley is a gifted writer. I could easily have finished this one by now but I ‘m trying to make it last, because the next book in the series isn’t due to be out till next year.
Another whole year!!
I’m linking up with Judy for “Whatcha Reading Tuesday.” Hoping for leads to more good books.
