Sometime in June of 2012 I gave up watching television in the evenings (altogether really) and started reading books instead. For some reason the television made me anxious and I had trouble falling asleep - while reading calms and entertains me at the same time. In the past ten months I've read nearly forty books - some great, others not so much. I want to share the best ones here with you.
The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
The Fault in our Stars by John Green
Shine, Shine, Shine by Lydia Netzer
Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
No reviews from me - these books are all excellent. I linked the titles to amazon if you'd like to read what other's have said.
I'm progressing right along with my star blocks but I just realized that I may need to sash the outside edge in the white kona cotton so that I can square up my quilt easily without sacrificing any of the design. I wasn't planning on this and will need to order another yard of the white kona cotton. What do you think - no sashing or a 2 inch white border to help square up the quilt after quilting?
Which also happens to be pi day so I hope you also get to eat some pie - while reading and quilting, of course! Fortunately pie also tastes great and works wonders if you're eating it while your kiddos are running around screaming and bickering. Have a great day!
