Book Reviews, Projects and My Dinosaur Status

So many things to chat about today! Several projects were made this week, with specific purposes in mind. First, a dear friend is moving away, and I wanted to make her a special card. It will have a little gift inside. The card is a trifold, with stamped thread spools on the front with ribbon …

A Few Book Reviews

I have been really busy lately, focused on My Sweet Babboo's recovery while doing the last publicity chores for the quilt show this past week. I also organized our longarm booth and hurriedly finished off the quilts and cards I wanted to sell, so I've had precious little time to read. This week has been …

Reading Holiday Stories

Over the past month, I have been reading stories set during the holidays. A light read with a Christmas theme is fun this time of year. Many of these are shorter novellas with feel-good endings, and isn't that the perfect thing for the holiday season? This month, all of the books are recommended, not a …
