Appalachian Autumn! All I had left was to hand stitch the binding and that happened Saturday and Sunday. Of course, now the Fall decorating season is over and we moved into Christmas...so this quilt was folded and put away for now. We'll enjoy it next Fall though!
I am MOST excited about this finish - my Christmas Row Quilt. All it needed was a bit of big stitch quilting and I finished that Sunday. Some of my friends made many of these rows so this quilt is really special. I still need to pin the bows on the wreaths (second row from top). I was determined to finish this before Christmas and I did.
I'm knocking out my UFO's. I still have two quilts with my long armer friend, so I should have two more finishes before long.
What I'm reading:
I've been better about reading this year. For a long time after my mastectomy and associated surgeries, my brain was in a fog and I had trouble reading. I have read various modern novels recently and enjoyed them to a limited degree. For over a year now I've been thinking about those classics I read when I was a young teen. Those great books of old!
I remember my mom taking me to the library, particularly in the summer. I would see the placards with
lists of recommended books for teens. Little Women, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights. The Iliad and The Odyssey. Yes, I was that teen. I would read the listed books FOR FUN! Can you believe I read The Iliad and The Odyssey for fun???? Yes, I was a nerd. But a well read one!
I decided it was time to go back in time. So for the next year, I plan to read some of these old classics. I have started with Jane Eyre. And I'm loving it!
Better go - Sadie will be here soon!
