A little of this, a little of that

These are the quilts that will go in the quilt show in Tilden in July. They still need bindings and labels, but I have time.

This is what was in the lovely package waiting for me at the Post Office this morning. I'm so glad Lori in SD, oops, I mean Nebraska's mail box is working. Thanks lots, Lori.

I just finished reading the 9th book in Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. Another good one. I know there's another one coming but the ending of this one really has me wondering where the story will go next. I also got the DVDs of the first season of True Blood, the HBO series based on the series so one of these days I'll just have to close the shades and have a vampire marathon. Hey, maybe that's what I can do on the 4th of July. I'm going to be home alone except for my son's dogs. I'm sure they'll enjoy vampires too. LOL The second season is starting on HBO but since I don't get it I'll have to wait for it to come out on DVD too.

A really good book that you should read if you get a chance is "The Girls From Ames" by Jeffrey Zaslow. It's non-fiction about a group of women from Ames, Iowa who have remained close friends for forty years, some of them since kindergarten and first grade, but all of them through high school. How many groups of high school friends stay close for that long? A couple of close friends maybe, but not ten of them.

I also regularly read quite a few blogs. Quilters' blogs of course, but also blogs about libraries/books, scrapbooking and genealogy. Of the genealogy ones, I enjoy Genea-Musings by Randy Seaver the most. He always includes a lot of good genealogy information, websites and tips about genealogy software. Always interesting.


  1. Great looking quilts...I am crazy about the fourth one! WOW!

  2. Love the quilts!! Isn't it funny how looking at quilts can make your blood pressure go down?? What is that all about anyway?!?! hahahaha
    I've been reading a ton of books this summer and when I went to the librar to change some out the other day I thought of you. :) I gave my librarian an extra big smile.
    Have a great day!!!

  3. the pink/brown quilt is spectacular! I am drooling all over the computer screen!

  4. These are all beautiful quilts. I still want to make that Bonnie Hunter's quilt.
    I had lunch yesterday with some people and we discussed genealogy - gold rush, wars, etc. It was a very interesting conversation.

  5. Wow, you're a great quilter. My grandma and mom (big-time quilters) would love see them. I particularly like the third one down. Awesome colors.
