My Favorite Books

Who has time to read!





I love books...reading or listening to books via Ipod....and want to share one of my latest "finds"!!  Actually, this book was a recommendation by AARP!  It's called The Martian and it's one of the best books I've read in a long time!  It's not about a 'martian'...although, I guess you could call the character a martian!  It's about an astronaut who gets stranded on mars!  I can't sit and read during the day...just too busy doing other things but I read in bed at night or while watching the Tiger's play on TV!    It is hard to put this book down... it's fiction and written so well!!!  I'm a mystery or biography reader but this one had me at "Log Entry: Sol 6"...you know what I mean by that if you read the book...and do read the book...


I've been busy working on the projects that can't be revealed yet but have also started to play around with some background fabric choices for my hex horse.  I get bored working on the same project!

The printed/dyed/stamped fabrics I created back in July (you can see post here)  should/will work great for the background for the horse.  It's hard to tell by this pic but I think I'm on the right track.

Now to decide the size of strips and start piecing the background.  Worse case, if I don't like the horse on the background, I'll just use it for creating a hand stitched quilt or for another project.

Weather is BEAUTIFUL here today!!!  Sunny, breezy and only in the high 60's!  Now this is my kind of weather!!!  I could handle this year round!!!  So could Kalee!!!

I'll have to put that book on my want to read list, which keeps getting longer and longer! Thanks for the suggestion. I can see you are on the right track with your horse background, those are great looking fabrics!

I need a good book to read however this is not the time yet...too many chores and distractions. Fabulous fabrics for your Hexy Horse. We have Fall weather and it is so pleasant. Kind of makes me worry what will be next...
