For the second week in a row, tonight’s books are brought to you from my kitchen.
The reason for Friday night books being in the kitchen for the second week in a row? Bit of a storm rolling in:
I know that Brothel was in there last week too, but I didn’t actually get to it until yesterday. It’s really, really interesting book. Unfortunately, it also makes my blood just boil. Between the willingness of women to allow evil men to control them and the willingness of men to be that evil control I get very frustrated and sad.
Anyway, the quilting and gardening books aren’t being read, strictly speaking. More that they are very active reference books for me at this time in my life. ;) Black Powder War and The Book Thief just came home from the library yesterday. The Book Thief is written in a very interesting style and the narrator is quite entrancing. I think, given half a chance, this would be a book you would stay up all night to finish. Apparently it’s to be a movie soon too (the movie trailer looks quite good!). Who knew? Okay, you probably knew.
Anyway, in other news, I didn’t work on the quilt of destiny at all today. It sat on my kitchen island looking like a great rolled up burrito.
All pinned up and ready to be quilted. Pat mentioned in the comments that she only ever pinned a quilt once. Then she used some sort of magical substance called ‘basting spray’ or ‘fusible batting’. Um, hello! I will so be researching these products before embarking on another quilt. LOL. Thank you so much Pat! Have you been to Pat’s blog lately? Her spinning and now her natural dyeing are amazing. Her quilting and knitting were already mind blowing.
Oh, and last but not least, I had my checkup today and all was good and golden. Erm, except my cholesterol was a bit high. :( And I need to lose a bit o’ weight. Sigh. Oh well, if I’m skinnier I’ll be able to knit a sweater faster, right? Snort!
