July Books and Reading

Another eclectic month of reading fiction and non-fiction. I am working my way through a long reading list that I've had for several years. Up first, a very difficult to find book by one of my favorite authors, Liz Trenow. I loved it, and should have just ordered one on Amazon years ago instead of …

Fiction and Quilting Book Reviews

This month was a mixed bag of really, really good, and really disappointing.

Books, Books and More Books

It's been another month of eclectic reading, some more culling, and new finds in the quilting/sewing genre.

I do enjoy well written historical fiction, particularly when it involves the home arts.  The stack this time were a diverse group of genres, and time periods.   One common theme in all these novels is women trying to make new lives after …

Fiction with a Quilting Theme

With all this extra time on our hands, reading has been a nice way to spend a morning.  This past month and a half, I've gathered several new books and devoured them all with quilting as a theme.  Two were sent to me by C&T Publishing specifically for this post, and two by their authors.  …
