It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. As she says, it's "a great way to plan out your reading week and see what other are currently reading as well...you never know where that next 'must read' book will come from!"
I am still reading The Land of Painted Caves by Jean A. Auel. It is 828 pages and I am still listening to The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt it is 32 hours or 771 pages!
This is a small baby quilt for my newest great grandson who oddly enough lives in Arizona and who has a mom who is a huge Denver Bronco fan. It will go in the mail this week, I finished it last week, but with all the 90th birthday party plans going on this week, I did not get it in the mail.
And this banner was completed just in time to hang on the First Day of Spring. Of course, we then got more snow, but it has just about all melted away and I hope it stays away.
I am also working on completing a quilt top that I started just before I retired in October 2011. I thought I would have lots of free time to get it completed in record time. NOT!! I have challenged myself to get it ready for the quilter by the first week of May. The pieced blocks are done, as is the applique, I have to put the blocks together and all the borders. Alas, one of the borders is pieced too, so we will see. Here is the quilt in progress.
It is on my design wall, the blocks are sewn in diagonal rows so that the blocks are on point . The colors are shades of burgundy, green, gold, teal and cream. I like it a lot, but it sure has taken me longer than I thought.
Until next time
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
