Books and some Quilts

June has been a busy month with end of the school year picnics and field days; add on both kids getting sick in the first full week of summer vacation and there has been very little time for quilting and blogging about it. The other thing distracting me is reading. I've been craving novels and have read 4 in 2 weeks. I started with "A Jest of God" and "Fire-Dwellers" by Margaret Laurence, both of which I have read before. Great books but I know Laurence's style of writing isn't for everyone. Then I read "Tent" by Margaret Atwood which was a nice quick read. Lastly, I read "The Red Tent" by Anita Diamant and was surprised by how much I loved this book. I've had several people tell me that I need to read it and I finally got around to it. It dominated my dreams and thoughts and it even made me cry. Highly recommend reading it.

I have managed to get some quilting done and below are some of things I have completed.

A baby quilt made with a vintage quilt top.

Some quilted houses ready to join any neighborhood.

Cranes and a waterfall wall hanging.

A few more funky houses ready to find a new home.

Now, who are the lucky people to get these projects? I don't know yet, maybe you or maybe somebody else who checks out my Etsy shop.
Hopefully I will get better about posting now that I have a store to fill.
