Currently reading...............

Of course the new issue of Quilting Arts is full of wondrous and beautiful fabric projects that I'm sure I can squeeze time in "one day" to make! I even go so far as to put a sticky note (lots!) in each issue........and I even read the ads, they're so pretty. When the new issue comes every other month, I spend an entire afternoon curled up with the cat and read it cover to cover. Then having marked great idea to try, it goes up on the shelf with about a hundred other magazines..........am I the only one who does this?!

And the well-worn and much-loved fat paperback has entertained me every night since my generous and kind gal pal Susan C. was kind enough to share it with me. It turns out that she and I read the VERY SAME books!
This is Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, from 1989.
We have several other likes and dislikes, etc. that are the VERY SAME.
She is a quilter and lives an amazing busy life in a gorgeous yellow house..........find her blog (Blackberry Creek) in the list of blogs on the right-hand side of my first blog page and do visit her and pup Sofie sometime. Thank you, Susan, for the great reading time with this book; I'm almost finished and it's just as you said it was: good ALL the way through!

Glad you're liking the book, Phyl. I knew you would. I just got my new QA yesterday. I love that cover.

I do that with decorating magazines...After about a year, I go thru them again and tear out pages that I STILL love....put them in a folder for "some day".
