The quilting on the long skinny continues. I hope to finish the quilting today. Then I'll fuse some organza on top of the quilting and do a bit of painting on the surface. I think.
I still have not received the new issue of Quilting Arts magazine. Grumble.
I recently finished reading Water for Elephants. Deb recommended it and I loved it! It was unlike what a usually read (not that I stick to just one genre or read that much). It's set on a traveling circus in the 1930's. That alone makes it very interesting, and a bit edgy and raw. I won't say anything about the ending, but if you've read it and want to discuss it, you must email me straight away! I actually bought this book when one of our local bookstores was closing and everything was 25% off. I normally use the library, but this book has 23 holds on it at our local branch. That seemed like a good sign that it would be worth buying. It was.I made Shepard's Pie for dinner last night and it was yummy. In fact, I'm looking forward to having left overs for lunch.
What was I thinking when I signed up for another ATC swap with Amy? They are due on Friday and I haven't even started. Why I am here blogging?
