Baby Beluga Mini Quilt

I’ve had a bit of a busy month, with family reunions and out of town weddings, so even though I got my Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt pieced early in the month, I didn’t get around to finishing it until this week. This month’s challenge was flying geese.  I’d never made one Read More …

Bowden Exhibit at Dunn Art Gallery

One of my favorite jobs at work is taking photos of the exhibits at the Dunn Art Gallery.  The current exhibit is by artists Gene and Bill Bowden.  The interesting thing about exhibits with multiple artists, like this one, is how the different artists’ artwork interacts. Bill Bowden’s exhibits focus on pottery, but also include Read More …

Invaluable Books at High Prices

I recently discovered Invaluable.com, an online auction website that focuses on high quality items.  They had lots of books that I’d love to have on my shelf. I love science-fiction, so I was excited to see the collection of Easton Press Science Fiction Books being auctioned by a private estate. The God’s Themselves by Issac Read More …

#OurProject52 – Centered

Booklr Questions – What are your favorite book covers?

What are your favorite book covers? I am absolutely in love with Orion Publishing’s new hardcover imprints of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels. I might have even ordered one of them from the Book Depository the other day.  It was a copy of Good Omens, the only book in the collection that wasn’t a Discworld novel, Read More …

A Beginner’s Guide to Paradise – A Review

I recently got a chance to read an advance copy of A Beginner’s Guide to Paradise by Alex Sheshunoff. This memoir about Sheshunoff’s time in the south pacific was a wonderfully entertaining read.  A big thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Group for my Advanced Reader Copy (ARC). So what’s this book about anyway? A Synopsis Read More …

WIP Wednesday

It’s  WIP Wednesday again, and surprisingly enough I’ve actually got another work in progress to share.  I’m super proud of myself getting started on this month’s Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism Challenge so early.  Of course, I need to get it done and out of the way, so that I can get a baby Read More …
