Half way through the summer that's a depressing thought so better make the most of it as the days gradually get shorter. The books I've read since May.........
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley book club everyone hated the book too many words and weird story but it was written almost 200 years ago.
Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain just for fun wonderful writing.
Chestnut Street by Maeve Bianchy
Sex and Salmonella by Kathleen Taylor
Hotel South Dakota by Kathleen Taylor
Mourning Shift by Kathleen Taylor
Cold Front by Kathleen Taylor
these 4 books (first book was in April reading list) were written by a South Dakota author, her descriptions of
small town life and South Dakota are wonderful and very funny. Her fiction has recently been formatted for e readers.
Dakota a Spiritual Geography by Kathleen Norris book club also a South Dakota writer and wonderful descriptions of the prairie and small town life in South Dakota. It is also a brief history lesson on the farm crisis in the 1980's. It is about life, community, and faith. non fiction
The Invention of Wings
Sue Monk Kidd the story takes place in the early 1800's and is about a
white girl and a slave girl growing up at the same time on the same
plantation. Two very different points of view.

Some days I just need to get behind actually in front of my sewing machine and put the pedal to the floor. There is nothing like the roar of the machine to make me feel like I'm accomplishing something. I've been moving this quilt from one out-of-the-way-spot to another out-of-the-way-spot until it is time to move it out of the room. Out-of-the-way-spots unlike safe spots are obvious and actually in the way. The only way a quilt gets out of the sewing room is to be ready for the binding and that is the next step. feeling the power--Ann--

Yippee I sold a baby quilt on etsy!! Now there is room in the closet for a different quilt. I made 3 quilts all of the same block and setting from this little bundle of fabrics. I backed up photos onto CDs a computer ago and this computer will not read a CD only DVD's so I can't show pictures of the other quilts. I do have them in print in a photo book of all my quilts but what good does it do to back things up when technology won't let you into the backup plan????--Ann--
