Our monthly book list went from 10 pages to 4 pages to one page as I expected it to do. There are many repeats which I try to watch for and not include more than once.
So many of you have read Educated by Tara Westover and I just finished it yesterday. Like many books I’ve enjoyed, this book had a character I disliked and made me mad keeping me very interested in this true story, a memoir. We discussed it at Novel Idea this morning and several had read this book. Connie was one that didn’t like it so much – the two main characters had a difficult relationship and that’s all I will say.
I’m also reading The Ragged Edge of Night on my Kindle – I’m betting it’s a good book but I’m halfway through and it’s pretty slow going. I might quit unless somebody tells me it was a great book – eventually.
Arlo did really well with his pelvic surgery – the vet pinned it in at least 2 places and Arlo was able to walk outside to potty – even with 3 broken bones in his right back leg. They said he is very strong – a big guy who’s not going to want to stay quiet for long. This will be Ginny’s biggest challenge – keeping him calm and slow. Tomorrow the vet will put plates in his right back leg and then it will be time to heal. Continued prayers couldn’t hurt and thank you from Ginny and me!

I wanted to give you a “teaser” Bullseye picture and as I post these you can imagine what was happening the minute I laid that quilt on the table. Milly was right there!
All of you with cats can sympathize with me.
In these photos I want you to notice that this quilt is made with raw edge machine appliqué and circles are intended to be imperfect. Circles are cut freehand and stitched by machine to background squares.
This was just to get you thinking about joining our quilt-along which starts January 1, 2019. And don’t forget to jot down the books you’ve read recently so that when I request book names in January, you’ll be ready.
Remember this begonia photo?
A reader named Donna O. suggested to me that it looked like a Kaffe Fassett fabric and many readers agreed when they saw it on a Kaffe Fassett Group site. What do YOU think?
Got Mystery Clue #3 done this morning so now I need to clean up again so I have some room to work. Tonight our choir will perform our cantata called “I Love to Tell the Story” at a senior living place. It’s now time for me to practice!
