It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
The short answer is not much. I gave up on Independent People ; it's good and everything, but I just couldn't hack it any more. I'd pick it up, read a paragraph and go "I can't do this." Then a day later the same thing would happen, then it would happen aga...

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I finished The Passage last week, and finished The Twelve today, so I guess that means I'm on to City of Mirrors next. Starting tomorrow! I need a day or so to process and regroup after two pretty tough weeks of reading. Everything I've heard about City sug...

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
To be honest, mostly what I'm reading today are "Game of Thrones" reviews. Last night's episode, the season finale, was so good. Just, wow. I won't talk about it in detail in case you haven't seen it yet. Let's just say my household is still recovering from...

Re-Reading Justin Cronin's THE PASSAGE
So back in May City of Mirrors , the third in the Passage trilogy, finally came out. I snagged a galley in March through a friend and didn't start reading it until last Friday. I know. Why did I wait? Partly it was other things to get to first- book clubs a...

Crafturday-Where Are My Dragons?
Well I finally finished my dragons quilt, now officially titled "Where Are My Dragons?" in honor of Daenerys Targeryan and "Game of Thrones" the TV show (I'm not into the books.) I got the pattern from Maaike Bakker's wonderful book Spellbinding Quilts , wh...

My First Quilting Retreat, or "My Life is Really About Books"
So this past weekend I went on my first weekend quilting retreat. This is just what it sounds like- a three-day weekend at a retreat center (in this case the Ladore Center in Waymart, PA) where we set up our machines and spend every waking moment sewing. My...

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I don't have much to show for my reading week! I only managed to get about 100 pages into The City of Mirrors this week, but it's a pretty good 100 pages. Re-reading the series from the beginning was the right thing to do; these books are too immersive to b...

Finally! I finished this table runner yesterday- it had been in my UFO pile probably for three years, if not longer. It's one of those things I had no idea what to do with, then I finally decided to just dive in and do someth...

One of my all-time favorite stories, both in print and in the movies, is Gone With the Wind . It was one of the first written-for-adults books I read, and I devoured it. The movie too, maybe even more so- the beautiful costumes, Vivien Leigh at her lovelies...
