Review of the week

School holidays are over, and the kids went back to school on Monday - I tidied and cleaned the house and it stayed that way for the whole day!
Monday night I had quilt group at my house - made a coffee cake that was really yum
It was the series final of "Grey's Anatomy" - I cried a little bit
Back to swimming lessons and rugby practice again for both boys
I started reading this book : I have enjoyed reading many of Margaret Forster's novels in the past, so this looks promising.
Saw this at the movies :The book is better, but still a good evening out with a girlfriend
Finally got the worms to start the worm farm that I got for my birthday
Met some friends on various days for coffee
Thinking about library work again - I left 4 years ago to be home with my kids
Spent a morning with my sister-in-law and nephew - Hi Nicky & Harry :-)
Traced this pattern (to the right) and selected some materials.
The pattern is available here - click on the tab for projects
It is a design by Piece O' Cake - click here for their blog
and here for some of their lovely books.
I love their work and have made other quilts of their design...will share them in another post.
I started stitching paper for a new book project.

They don't look much yet, but if you click on the below links, you will see the general direction of where I am headed!
Mary Ann Moss : Dispatch from LA
Emily Falconbridge
Julie Ann Shahin
DJ Pettitt
Kelli Nina Perkins
Susie LaFond

Hope you all have a good weekend :-)

Hi Lynette

This is looking good.Thank you for visiting my blog. Did you like Isa and May? I am a big Margaret Forster fan but could not 'get into' this novel and have put it away for another time (maybe)

Had to add - now that I have read all your blog posts - that I did the Textural Bookwraps course with Angie Hughes last year here in the UK - only just completed the first one though -it will be blogged in a day or two. Have plans for another one to go with some Remains of the Day pages
